A fresh Chrome browser is available: Version 47 brings new features especially for Android users. The Notification Center an untapped function falls off.
on Google Chrome coexist several strands Version: Final, Beta and Developer. In the beta version now published hold catchment changes, the experimental users met already with the less mature Dev version. Most innovations are detailed improvements, the prompt change fundamentally not – as so often. ULTIMATE TECH NEWS reveals to what extent the fresh Beta differs from its predecessor.
Notifications fall away
Among the major cuts include a Painted function. As has anyway hardly anyone used, they are likely to miss only a few users. We are talking about only in 2013 introduced Notification Center (Notification Center). To simplify keeping the browser that now flies out of the program. This affects the Chrome versions for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Alternatively refers Google that both Mac OS X (since 10.8), Windows 10 and Linux rely on central message centers. Only the cloud operating system Chrome OS Google stirred the feature messages from apps and extensions indicate not to, so an official blog post.
Splash screen for Web Apps
Apparently, there is currently a trend to merge operating concepts: After Microsoft tried with Windows 8/10 to bring out an operating system for different classes of devices, Google lays the foundation for the unification of websites and apps. For some time, there is the possibility of storing Web services for quick access to the home screen on Android devices. Just as apps to show in the future also Internet services known as splash screens. This is a graphic that bridges the charging time by tapping the icons, so in short order a loading screen. Web page creators, it is open to define a custom color and an (animated) icon. The difference between such a web app and an app right blurred.
Show your true colors: Individual address bar
One innovation is linked to the waiting splash screens, which confers Online offers a characteristic color. Now it is the operators of the web pages possible to color the address bar of Chrome users on Android – during which offers are opened. Where the holder of a website which does not use the URL line continues to appear in the default gray. However, it is assumed that webmaster for themselves discover the feature: Network offers to win by a striking color change clearly recognizable. One way to regulate the display changes, the user has not. At the bottom of the screen Google leads something completely new one: an info bar called a snack bar. The shows when a file is completely downloaded. Per fingertip smartphone users open the transferred element.The fresh download manager lists outplayed photos or documents and sorts them even by date.
Surfing without judder effects
The novelty called request Idle Callback () is aimed primarily at Web developers: make about the future determines the utilization of the browser. In order to ensure an image refresh rate of 60 frames per second, the browser performs complex arithmetic work through only if Chrome has to do in idle mode bit. Of which the pace should benefit.Further improvements for web programmers are rather irrelevant for normal users;former recognize among other more reliable, which device uses the surfers.
Conclusion: Chrome 47 (Beta)
Chrome version 47 is poorer by a function: The so-called Notification Center is no longer included in the new version. Since felt 99 percent of Chrome users did not know this feature, this omission is actually commendable. Thus, space is created for new features that offer users greater value. Whether the new animated loading screens or colored address bars fall under this category, however, is doubtful.
