Google Chrome is a popular browser in the world. However, this Google browser has been criticized for consuming a lot of memory on the phone or other resources. This means that while it is feature-rich and good at rendering and loading websites for some users, Google Chrome is too resource-intensive to be used as a daily driver, as quoted from Ubergizmo.
However, in a recent blog post, Google has detailed some of the changes they have made that will make it more memory efficient. One of these changes is in the form of hidden windows which can identify and determine hidden tabs and windows. With this in mind, Chrome can then allocate computer resources accordingly. For example, if you have a tab that you don’t use, Chrome doesn’t allocate resources to it.
According to Google, based on the changes they made, they found there was an 8.5 percent to 25.8 percent in terms of faster startup, a 3.1 percent reduction in GPU memory usage, and 20.4 percent multiple renderer frames drawn overall. .
This change has actually been made and rolled out to Chrome Windows users in 2020. So you should have seen it already. For those with high-end specs, this may be less obvious, but for those with older computers with less RAM it can be useful.
