Computer slowing down when you have a dozen Chrome tabs at the same time? We’ve all been through this phase before and trust me, it is really annoying and frustrating. Well, all of this have something to do with Adobe Flash, mainly due to Adobe’s heavier usage of RAMs and many more contributing factors.
Fortunately, Google has recently launched an update to their popular browser. The new update integrates HTML5 standard completely in the latest version 55 of its Chrome web browser, which ultimately replace Adobe Flash. This move is expected to increase page load times and improve battery life.
According to Anthony LaForge, the curator of Flash in Chrome in an official blog post, he remarked that, “90% of Flash on the web loads behind the scenes to support things like page analytics. HTML5 is much lighter and faster, and publishers are switching over to speed up page loading and save you more battery life. You’ll see an improvement in responsiveness and efficiency for many sites.”
Back in May this year, Google first announced its plans to drop Flash entirely for Chrome. Apart from its plan to block Flash content, the company has announced that it will have HTML5 instead as the default standard for games and videos from Chrome’s version 55.
However, Google has stated that websites that supports Flash exclusively will remain unaffected by the update.
Until recently, the company has also updated Chrome with the addition of mobile payments support of Android Pay, coupled with a few performance improvements as well.
Unlike the older, slower payment feature, the new Payment Request web standard sports faster checkouts with a single tap. The company claims that the new payment feature brings battery improvements for devices by reducing the browser’s battery intake for websites that are frequently visited.
Google has also claimed that the new Chrome version for Android is now 15% faster compared to its earlier versions. They also added that Chrome for Mac now uses 33% less power for general browsing like video streaming, viewing images and page scrolling.
