Google Chrome boosts performance and productivity
Google has launched some new features in Chrome citing added browser performance. Chrome now has better PDF document management, easy link sharing, and more.
“Link to Highlight” is a feature that is used to share underlined text with friends or work colleagues. Just select the text on a web page and right-click on the “Copy link to highlight” option. By opening this link the recipient is automatically sent to the section where the underlined text is located.
The option is currently being launched in Chrome for desktop and Android.
PDF management has also been improved. A new sidebar makes it possible to view all PDF pages in thumbnail and quickly skip to a specific page.
Penetration Mode hides all the tools to focus on the content. Another new option that is coming to Chrome is freezing tabs for closed groups. Thus the browser will reduce memory consumption and CPU usage for closed tab groups by improving performance.
Finally, Google talked about performance enhancement. Chrome reduces CPU usage by 35% and increases battery life by 1.25 hours on Mac and Windows computers. Also the browser now consumes only 100MB for each open tab.
