A browser is like a doorway for internet users to access the world wide web. Organizations rely on browsers to share their content with people all over the world, and users need them for accessing the content, among a million other things that can be done using web browsers. There are many popular browsers like Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari. Chrome is the most widely used browser because of its speed, simplicity, regular updates, and easy integration over other apps. It’s UI is very appealing to all types of users.
Having said that, the major drawback with Chrome is that it eats the CPU, causing the device or other apps running on the device to slow down. Google realized that it started losing market share to browsers like Edge and Firefox primarily because of this issue. Reports claim that Google has been working on Partition Alloc-everywhere, a feature that will allow Chrome to load pages faster while using lesser memory.
A New Update – PartitionAlloc-everywhere
It has started rolling out this feature to Windows and Android. PartitionAlloc-everywhere, though, at its current state, has a lot of issues and is unstable, it’s expected to improve over time because of Google’s continued emphasis on improving Chrome so as to not lose more market share. This becomes important because Microsoft has been able to add SegmentHeap to its Chromium Edge browser, which has tremendously brought down RAM usage and has resulted in impressive memory management.
Segment Heap is becoming popular and reports suggest Google may need Microsoft’s help in using SegmentHeap in its browser because Google said while SegmentHeap cuts down the RAM usage, it also causes performance related issues. So, Google may need Microsoft’s assistance in adding two flags to Windows.
