Performance improvements for tabs in the background

With the release of Chrome 87, Google has added some optimization to increase the performance of your computer while using the browser.

After analyzing the resources used by the background tabs, Google found that JavaScript timers use> 40% of the resources. With this release, Google is increasing performance by allowing JavaScript timers to "wake up" and run a function every minute.

In addition to speeding up the JavaScript timer, Chrome 87 includes block monitoring to determine which tabs are being used, so that your browser allocates resources only to those you use.

Google says this improvement has made Chrome "up to 25% faster to boot and 7% faster to load pages, while using less memory."

Google releases cache in Google Chrome for Android users.

This feature will save a complete snapshot of the webpage, including JavaScript, to the cache so you can get back to exactly where you left off.

 

FTP support was disabled by default

In November 2018, we reported that Google planned to remove FTP support from the browser, as only 0,1 -2% of their users visited an FTP site for seven days.

With the release of Chrome 80, Google began disabling the feature for 1% of its user base as a test, but due to the pandemic, it re-enabled it so that users are not excluded from medical information.

With today's version of Chrome 87, Google has disabled FTP support by default, and trying to visit an ftp: // site will do nothing in the browser.

Users who still need FTP support can enable it using chrome: // flags / # enable-ftp , but it should be noted that from Chrome 88, all FTP is removed.
