Google recently rolled out the Google Chrome update and claims it as a major performance enhancement to Google Chrome browser. Chrome's director of product, Matt Waddell wrote in a blog post, "This month's update represents the largest gain in Chrome performance in years". They are so many under the hood changes and optimization to chrome browser which will give a major boost to chrome on several fronts.

The first major update is with tabs. Chrome will now prioritize your active tab rather than other tabs that are opened in the background. This will reduce the CPU usage up to 5x and extend the battery life by up to 1.25 hours. Under the hood, Google will go into some extensive process which involves throttling JavaScript. Don't worry still music and YouTube video will play in background smoothly without any issue. Chrome will be now lighter on memory and should feel faster. The browser will now launch 25 percent faster. Pages will now load 7 percent faster and take less power and RAM.

Google also added tab search in the latest update, now no more lost tabs in a huge pile. You will now be all to see the list of open tabs and then quickly type to navigate to that one. The address bar is getting a bit more useful with something Google calls Chrome Actions, “a faster way to get things done with just a few keystrokes.”

For Example, suppose you want to delete browsing history what will you do? You fill the first open setting and the go-to history section and click on delete. Now you can simply type "delete history" in your address bar and take action for deletion directly from the bar.

All these things together add up to a significant update for the world’s most popular web browser.
