Google has profited a lot in Chrome with Microsoft’s approach to the new Edge. This proximity means that the Microsoft system can adapt to give even more to this browser, something that all others with the same base take advantage of.
Thus, it was expected that Chrome would soon take advantage of a novelty from Microsoft for Windows 10. The expected result was a decrease in the RAM consumed, something that is now happening, still only in Chrome Canary.
Less RAM consumed in this browser
Chrome RAM consumption is usually very high. This situation is not limited to Windows 10, but is spread on many other platforms where this browser can be used. Google has made efforts to counter it, but almost always without success.
To help with this, Microsoft has given Windows 10 an important new tool. It is called “SegmentHeap” and will reduce the consumption of RAM, with Chrome being one of the most benefited.
Important improvement in Chrome
Google had already indicated that it wanted to explore this novelty and, above all, to improve its browser. He did not go ahead with dates or other information, but apparently he immediately took on tasks to incorporate the improvements in his browser.
An Publication made by Bruce Dawson, a programmer at Google, reveals that the latest Canary version of this browser brings an important novelty. It should already consume less RAM memory, by exploring the “SegmentHeap”.
Google takes advantage of changes in Windows 10
As in many other situations, Google will now evaluate the use of this new feature in Chrome. It will also make it evolve and grow, moving on to the rest of the versions, until it reaches the end users later. The date for this moment does not yet exist.
This will be an important step and much awaited by users. The consumption of RAM memory in Chrome has grown in recent years, without Google being able, however, to put a brake on this situation.
