Google has the most popular browser for Android phones: Chrome. And although popularity is not a synonym for sheer quality, those over 1 billion people using Chrome on Android phones still say something about how useful the app is. But as usual, there’s always room for improvement when we’re talking about technology, and Google knows this very well.
The Chrome 85 Beta update for Android is now ready to delight us with a new feature. If you didn’t install it yet, you could wait for a relevant notification to appear on your phone’s display.
Fast-page labeling is a ‘must-have’
The new feature intends to highlight high-quality user experiences. This measure will inform users about the pages that load faster. A vital metric from the beta update of Chrome 85 will show a ‘fast page’ tag on URL or URLs provided by the same website and based on signals from the Core Web Vitals metrics that take into account important aspects of users’ experience.
Within a blog post where Google spoke about its Chrome 85 update, the giant from Mountain View told the public some interesting stuff:
“Optimizing for the Core Web Vitals may require some investments in improving page quality. To help out, we updated our developer tools to surface information and recommendations: Lighthouse, DevTools, PageSpeed Insights, and Search Console team added a report dedicated to Core Web Vitals too.”
Google also has only good things to say about its Chrome browser for Android, and this part of the Play Store description summarizes very well:
“Google Chrome is a fast, easy to use, and secure web browser. Designed for Android, Chrome brings you personalized news articles, quick links to your favorite sites, downloads, and Google Search and Google Translate built-in. Download now to enjoy the same Chrome web browser experience you love across all your devices.”
The future sure looks bright for Google’s Chrome browser for Android, as the developers always seek to tweak it some more.
