The Chrome 55 is expected to perform better than any previous iteration of the browser. The Chrome 55 team claims that there will be future updates too, that will further improve the browsing experience, especially for 1 GB of RAM. Now, users will be able to keep more tabs open along with multiple apps running in the background, without actually affecting the PC’s performance.
However, the Chromium team said that there is a trade-off between garbage collection throughput, latency and memory consumption. Devices with up to 512MB of RAM, can find it challenging to prioritize latency and throughput over memory consumption. This may result in ‘out-of-memory crashes.’
The Chrome 55 update will be released on December 6. It will replace the current public version, Chrome 53.
