Google To Fix RAM Problem In New Chrome 55, Set For December Release
Google's Chrome has been leading among other web browsers for the past years. However, Chrome users still face the biggest flaw of the browser. Now, the tech company is keen on fixing that problem. Google will release the new Chrome 55 on Dec. 6.
The current browser normally has been using memory in the background. This will be resolved in Chrome 55. It also has made improvements in the browser's "garbage collector" code. This means that unused RAM's are cleaned up and released back to the system.
The latest version was also tested on sites such as Imgur and Twitter. Google wants to ensure that it's effective in saving RAM usage. According to CNET, the tech company will also work on optimizations for lower-end devices with less than 1GB RAM.
The Current Chrome Browser Is Less Power-Efficient
As it was mentioned, such unused RAM in the background drains the battery. According to PC Mag, independent tests proved that Chrome is a memory hog. Its memory usage is twice as much as Firefox. This is based on the site's own memory test.
Microsoft has previously claimed back in June that their Edge browser is more power-efficient than Chrome.
