Google’s Chrome is the world’s most popular web browser, and for good reason. Chrome is mostly quick, and it features lots of extensions and add-ons that users can download to customize their browser and web browsing experience.
However, Chrome also has a nasty reputation for being a resource hog. This problem is particularly acute on Macs, where Chrome consumes significantly more memory and power as compared to Safari.
In addition, the team is working on optimizing Chrome on entry-level devices that have less h than 1GB of RAM.
Chrome 55 is expected to be released in early December, but users who want to try it out now can download it through Google’s beta program.
