'Tab Discarding' Will Help With Google Chrome's RAM Addiction

Browsers have become one of the most memory-intensive applications you can run and while vendors such as Google and Firefox have gone to great lengths to keep things under control, for some users, it’s still not good enough. In fact, Chrome will introduce a rather drastic measure in an upcoming version — tab “discarding” — to help alleviate the issue.


Go Install This Chrome Extension For Sending Self-Destructing Gmails

Gmail’s Undo Send feature gives users of Google’s free email service up to 30 seconds to change their mind on a sent email before it leaves their outbox.

One of the new features in Lollipop treats each Chrome browser tab as a separate app on the Overview screen — the idea is you can flick between (or close) tabs as easily as apps.

Future Versions Of Chrome Will Kill Flash, In The Name Of Battery Life

It’s no secret that Google Chrome hogs RAM and battery life like an Overly Attached Browser. In an effort to reduce the strain on your poor overwhelmed laptop, Google is introducing a feature that will auto-pause ‘unimportant’ Flash elements on a web page. Hell yes.


Chrome For Android Just Got A Killer Time-Saving Search Trick

An update rolling out to Chrome on Android devices comes with a neat little search trick that lets you search for that word within the same Chrome tab. It’s called Touch to Search, and it’s bound to make the often frustrating task of mobile browsing a hair more convenient.


Android M And Chrome Are Finally Doing Something Great For Users

The most important news about Android M is how it will handle the way apps get permission to access your private data. That sounds like a humble little technical detail until you realise what a revolution it will be when we can set our own permissions on apps, any time we want. And Chrome is doing it too.
