The new Chrome 91 beta is now available, and it’s making some welcome changes. It notably makes changes in the design of buttons and forms and improves your smartphone’s battery life.
Google rolled out Chrome 90 earlier this month. The U.S. giant is now attacking Chrome 91, whose beta is already available on mobile. When you browse the Internet from your Android smartphone, you may have noticed that some websites use HTML buttons, forms, and checkboxes. And that’s precisely what Google has changed. Indeed, these are now more modern and are better ingested in web pages.
The U.S. giant had already redesigned these elements on the P.C. version of Chrome.The new design will be available on the Chrome 91 version once it is deployed to all users. On Windows 10, Chrome 91 has also improved file copy and paste and form design.
CHROME 91 SAVES YOU EVEN MORE BATTERY
One of the main criticisms that Internet users make of Chrome is probably its high energy consumption. Google intends to fix this with Chrome 91 since sites can now recommend that your browser slow down specific processes that are not essential to your experience. If you accept, your browsing may be less fluid, but Chrome would become less energy-intensive.
Other welcome changes include finding text on websites that can now be found text that is not directly displayed. As a result, text can be searched in drop-down menus on some web pages such as FAQs.
Chrome 91 also makes changes to the WebOTP API. This allows websites to obtain single-use passwords sent by SMS. Google will now allow some sites to read the content of these messages directly, so you don’t have to copy the code yourself. Finally, Google has improved the Gravity Sensor API, which will allow developers to make their motion-based web games or applications more accurate.
