According to a new report released by Windows Latest, Google would be working on a new update for Google Chrome which will significantly limit the use of RAM used by the browser, while improving performance.
The American company, specifically, would be working for bring “PartitionAlloc-everywhere” support to Windows 10, Android, Linux and probably for other platforms as well.
The implementation of “PartitionAlloc-everywhere” will allow the browser to start faster, load pages faster and offer better management of system resources, which will then result in a less RAM usage.
Google would have started work last year, and a first beta is already available for users on the beta channel for Android and Windows. Big G, however, would aim to bring it also on Linux, where however the implementation has proved to be more difficult.
On Android, the first tests conducted on the beta version resulted in improved memory usage, as well as performance and stability when using Chrome on mobile devices.
According to rumors leaked in the last few hours, Google Chrome will also support Face ID and Touch ID on iOS, to protect user privacy. Furthermore, Google has recently stopped support for some processors, on which Chrome will no longer run.
