chrome optimizeThere is nothing quite like an update to a current operating system or software to provide a performance boost as well as the squashing of bugs. Google announced that their recent Chrome updates will offer a faster and more simple browsing experience on your respective smartphones and tablets. After all, having a decent amount of speed is always critical, especially if you tend to work out of the office all the time. The most recent version of Chrome for Android allows you to scroll and fling to view all of your favorite web pages faster than ever before, as it is based on the latest version of the V8 Javascript engine which has been specially optimized for the mobile platform. Google claims to have improved the Octane performance benchmark by 25% on average ever since the previous update.

Not only that, support for HTML5 features such as CSS Filters has been expanded, and this bodes well for future mobile websites. Apart from that, Google intends to continue optimizing Chrome for the Android platform at a similar breathtaking pace as you have already seen for Chrome on other platforms. [Press Release]
