New Chrome browser features improve faster page load, better tab management, QR code and more
Google Chrome browser will bring interesting new features – The performance of Google Chrome Tabs is being improved by Google and new features are being introduced to increase efficiency. The tab grouping recently introduced is being improved by Google, so that tabs can visually distinguish by topic, collapse, and expand the tab accordingly.
10 percent faster page load times, more battery, and memory savings can be achieved through improvements to Chrome tabs. Some features are still in beta and are gradually being released to all users.
According to Google Chrome’s UX director – Alex Ainslie, mention on a blog is that more time is being spent by people on their browsers to get things done and Chrome wanted to help people increase their productivity.
Two new improvements will make Google Chrome noticeably faster, according to the search giant. Up to 10 percent, faster page loads will be provided by Profile Guided Optimization, and the impact of the idle tab in the background will be reduced by tab management. For the Beta, the latter will be released and there will be improvements in page loading speed, as well as battery memory savings, according to Google.

An update will also be made to Tab Grouping, which Google announced in May. Tabs can be segregated by topic or priority by tab grouping, which helps to distinguish them. Tabs can easily be collapsed and expanded, so less space is taken up on the tab bar and allows users to find them quickly.
Tab views are also being introduced by Google, allowing the user to hover over a tab and a thumbnail view of the tag page will be seen. This feature is in beta and will be very useful when there are many tabs open.
In the address bar, when the user types the page title, a suggestion will be seen by users that will allow them to switch to that tab if it is already open. This feature was launched for users of Android and Chrome browser on the laptop.
For the Chrome tablet, a new touchscreen interface for tabs is being introduced by the technology giant, where larger tabs will be present to be organized and hidden. This touch screen interface will be available first for the Chromebook.
An enhanced URL share will be available for Android users so that a link can be easily copied and shared on other devices. A new QR code scanning feature coming soon in the Chrome browser.
There will be other improvements to Google Chrome, in addition to the better tab management feature. PDF documents can be edited and saved with user input directly from the Chrome browser. According to Google, users open the file again and should be able to pick up where it left them.
