These are the days of Google. The Google I/O developer conference, the event which lasted for two days, has ended. Plenty of information has been delivered, with the Android L version and the Android Wear smartwatches taking the spotlight. From now on we can digest the rest of the information, as it covers very important areas for regular consumers. One of the bits refers to how Google improves Chrome browser.
The browser’s role in the Android ecology and how Google improves Chrome browser
After the wave of ‘Go mobile’, now every developer aims to go ‘Mobile first’. Sundai Pitchai’s speeches at the conference conveyed Google’s strategy from now on, that of offering a “seamless experience across all these connected devices”. In order to achieve this goal, Google’s software must be fluid and adaptable to the multitude of devices running Android OS. One of the first plan delivered by Pitchai in the first talk referred to the company’s plans on accessing emerging markets. The new program, Android ONE will set a cheap but reliable hardware standard for areas where mobile internet is still used at small scale. Nevertheless, many Android users complained that the Chrome browser uses too many resources and slows down the smartphones, especially those featuring only 512 MbRam.
Chrome is an instrument that enables the smooth uninterrupted user experience on the Web, regardless of the used gadget. The signs are pointing towards Google’s efforts of introducing Android everywhere, from cars to house products. It is the only logical step to be taken in the new age of the internet of things.
