Google has been working with Adobe on a new version of Chrome. Changes will enable more battery life by pausing unnecessary adds. The new Chrome will allow a “smart” filtering of adds that use Flash.
At the moment, Adobe software plays any Flash content displayed on the site you are navigating. This can sometimes include either an overwhelming number of advertisements, or an exaggerated amount of content.
Battery life can be cruelly affected by Flash content, and Ram power as well. Google plans to “intelligently pause” content that “is not central to the page” like animations plating on the site’s margins. Google’s new “sorting hat” will still allow centered content like videos to play uninterrupted.
Practically, Chrome’s settings will change from allowing all flash content to play, to allowing the detection of relevant information only.
Google also announced plans to further develop upgrades that will reduce processing power and battery life usage. Everyone was expecting these changes sooner, since, for a while now, Chrome has one of the biggest average RAM consumptions of all available browsers .
Many users have been complaining on forums and community pages about the sizable amount of time it takes Chrome to load multiple webpages at once.This new upgrade might reduce ram usage, and speed up the browser’s functions.
Some of the most annoying adds on the internet use voice, or even worse, open new browser windows in order to display exaggerated amounts of content.
According to different polls and specialist websites, as much as 10 percent of Chrome users have a version of AdBlock installed on their devices.
Most Adblock users do not install it because they hate adds but rather because some adds can be really annoying. Some sites allow you to see the content you were searching for after as much as 15 minutes !
Also adds can sometimes include an audio component, it has been reported that these adds are sometimes set to deliver audio messages using as much as 100% volume enhancement. This means that while navigating a website like YouTube , you can run into an add playing it’s audio message at double the volume your YouTube clip was playing.
A change in the types of adds allowed by browsers to work, can probably mean less people using AdBlock like software and more money being generated from normal, rational and common sense using adds.
