Google has revealed that it would be introducing a number of improvements to Chrome, “including tabs that load faster and new features that let users organize and find them easily.”

“These days, people are spending a lot of time in their browsers to get things done, whether for work, school or something else,” says Google in an official blog post.

“And while some write out a formal to-do list to keep track of tasks, for others, their to-do list is their tabs in Chrome. However you get things done, we want Chrome to help you be more productive.”

Here’s a closer look at Google Chrome’s improvements:


  • Users can expect tabs to load 10 per cent faster
  • Chrome users can group tabs and then collapse them
  • Improved touch-friendly tabs for tablet mode will allow users to make use of a new touchscreen interface
  • Users can quickly switch to an already-open tab by typing a page title into the address bar
  • Improved Chrome PDF functions that will allow users to fill out PDF forms and save them directly
  • Easier URL sharing will allow users to quickly copy a link, send it to Chrome to other devices, and send links through other apps

Google Chrome is Testing a New Battery-Saving Feature

Google is reportedly working on a new feature that’ll allow websites to recommend ways to reduce battery usage when accessing them through Chrome.

“This way, Chrome wants to optimize [users] CPU consumption and save battery life, especially on resource-intensive websites such as video streaming and video-conferencing websites,” reports TheWindowsClub.
