This month's update represents the largest gain in Chrome performance in years, thanks to many under-the-hood improvements. Here’s what’s starting to roll out today:Besides performance optimizations, Chrome 87 also has some new features like the ability to instruct the browser to do various tasks via the address bar (like by typing in "delete history" or "edit passwords") .
Chrome now prioritizes your active tabs vs. everything that’s open—reducing CPU usage by up to 5x and extending battery life by up to 1.25 hours (based on our internal benchmarks).
Chrome now starts up to 25 percent faster, loads pages up to 7 percent faster, and does all of this using less power and RAM than before.
Chrome on Android now loads pages near instantaneously when you navigate backward and forward, making these common tasks super fast.
