Android 4.4 KitKAt makes Chrome use 16% less memory


Chrome is already one of the lightest and fastest browsers in the world, but there is always room for improvement. Google always emphasizes that even the smallest improvements make a huge difference in the user experience. With Android 4.4, Chrome becomes a bit more efficient, improving the mobile experience for users.

According to Sundar Pichai, head of Android and Chrome, the Chrome browser uses 16% less memory in Android 4.4 KitKat. This is partly what allows Android 4.4 to run on lower-end devices. The new software only requires 512 MB of RAM memory to run on a device, a requirement that is easy to fulfill with current devices.

Google is doing a great job at making Android and Chrome lighter and faster. Ultimately, this is what drives a product forward. New features are nice and all, but a smooth experience goes a long way!
