Jun 8, 2017

If you have an Android device, then you probably use Google Chrome to surf the Internet. There is a new Google Chrome update available now for Android, which will offer a ton of new performance improvements and enhancements. If you have an Android device, you probably have noticed how popular Google Chrome is.

Google Chrome is one of the most used browsers across multiple platforms, and Google is constantly changing things and updating the apps to make the experience better for people on various Android devices. The new update to Google Chrome brings Chrome to version 59 on Google Play Store, and if you have an Android device you should keep reading to learn more about what version 59 offers.

Google Chrome Version 59 Is all About Performance

The new Google Chrome version for Android might not be coming with a ton of new features, but that is okay because this update brings a lot of performance improvements. You will notice that your overall experience browsing the Internet on Android devices is going to get a whole lot better with the new version of Chrome. The new Google Chrome update for Android will be able to load websites a lot quicker thanks to the update to the JavaScript engine. Beyond that, it also is going to be taking up less memory in the process, which also will help boost performance and speed.

Considering that Google Chrome has over 1 billion users worldwide, these new improvements are going to come in very handy for a large portion of the world. In this new Android update we also see that webpages are loading about 20 percent quicker, which in part is thanks to the JavaScript engine update. This new JavaScript engine is V8, and you will notice if you are running Chrome on a device with low-memory, you will see improvements in speed.

If you are using sites like Wikipedia, Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter, you will really notice the changes to JavaScript. That is because the websites such as those listed are very dependent on JavaScript. The more the site uses JavaScript, the better your device will run now and the more noticeable the changes will be.

Beyond all of the changes to JavaScript, there is also improvements to the browser as a whole. Stability improvements and bug fixes were also part of this update. For many people, this is great news because one aspect of Chrome that could always use updates is the stability part. There is also now supported for the animated PNGs, which is pretty cool. Google has been a bit behind when it comes to supporting the animated PNGs, since Opera, Firefox and many other browsers have been supporting this feature for a long time.

If you are not sure the difference between a GIF and a PNG, basically the PNG is more high-quality. You can get 8-bit transparency with PNG and also it works with the 24-bit color spectrum. Some people like the quality of PNG images while other people still prefer the GIF, so it really is cool that Google is finally rolling out support for PNG, especially since everyone else seems to have done that a long time ago.

Google Chrome Update for Android Live Now

If you would like to see the performance and speed improvements for yourself, you can go to Google Play Store and download the new version of the app right now. The new version of Chrome for Android is Google Chrome version 59, and it is available right now in the app store. Remember that if you choose to get the update via the over-the-air option, it might take a few days for it to reach your device.

Most Android updates roll out sporadically, meaning that it could take a few days for you to see the update while your friend might have the update today. That is often times why it is better just to head over to Google Play Store and manually download the updates, since it takes away the possible waiting game between your Android device and the app in question.
