Chrome for Windows Updated with Material design and battery tweaks

Google Chrome logoChrome is often criticised for being a bit too power hungry and while that’s not really an issue on a PC that’s plugged in all the time, it can prove to be troublesome on notebooks and other similar devices. Even Microsoft has taken a swing at Chrome’s battery performance but Google is determined to not take it lying down. The company has pushed out an update for Google Chrome for Windows. The update brings Material Design as well as battery improvements to the most popular web browser out there.

Chrome version 53 for Windows has now been released into the stable channel which means that it’s ready for public consumption. The updated browser brings CPU and GPU power consumption improvements for video playback. It also gets overall performance and power improvements.

Hopefully, the tweaks that Google has made will address some of the concerns about its battery performance, but the results won’t be known for sure until some tests are run on the updated version and compared with the previous one.

Aside from these tweaks, Chrome 53 brings HiDPI improvements and Material Design tweaks to improve the browser’s look and feel. All characteristic Material Design elements are reflected in the flatter navigation, tabs, and overall user interface. Chrome 53 also brings dark mode for incognito mode and color emojis support for users on Windows 10.
