Google Chrome for Android was updated which enables saving pages for offline viewing in December last year. Taking a step ahead, the company today has added a minor but useful update to this feature making it easier to download pages for offline viewing.

Now when you long press on any link in Chrome, a new option called ‘Download link’ appears. This choice also appears when you tap and hold on any article suggestion on a new tab page. Also, if you happen to have connectivity issues or for any reason the Chrome dinosaur image appears, you will now see a ‘Download Page Later’ button that will automatically save the page whenever you are back online. Sounds neat. All downloaded articles show up in the recent downloads list with a new offline badge.

Do You Know Google’s Promise on Google Chrome 55?

Google Chrome is a notorious resource hog. It’s been known to guzzle up all the free RAM on your system and drain your battery at an alarming rate. Come December, and all this is set to change.

Chrome 55, which debuts on 6 December, will seemingly use an updated JavaScript engine, reports CNET. Google says that the updated engine uses much less RAM and that the benefits can amount to 50 percent more free RAM.

As far as most of the web-browsing world is concerned, however, they’d rather be using Chrome than any other browser. There are those who’ll stick to the default browser, be it Safari or Internet Explorer (IE) or even Edge, but those folk are doubtful to care about things like RAM consumption and battery life.
