Google wants to make your Chrome browsing activities safer than ever. It is now testing its Strict Extension Isolation. Here are its major details.
Google is now testing its Chrome’s latest Strict Extension Isolation. The tech giant firm claimed that this innovation will make your internet browsing activities safer. On the other hand, the giant tech firm also claimed that this new command will help improve Chrome users’ experiences and its browser’s performance.
Google Chrome keeps efficiency as its primary aim as can be seen through countless features and optimum performance. An example of this would be its ‘sandboxing’ feature for tabs that keep each tab rather distinctive and working its algorithm in case one crashes, none of the others would be affected.
Some experts claimed that although Google’s extension innovation is not really well know since users are unaware of these programs and their relevance, the new Strict Extension Isolation command is still a great update. However, the company’s extensions have a different working process. Extensions are software that you download on Chrome that increases efficiency and helps you run your software smoothly. These include advanced font settings and launchers.
Now, Google does not have separate processes. Because of this, the tech giant firm has allowed extensions to share site processes to work in better sync and coordination. It also keeps the process count lower which makes your PC run more smoothly avoiding crashes.
On the other hand, Google explained that the new extension sharing rule says that if the extensions exceeded 1/3rd of the total limit, then further extensions were to share other random extensions but this did have its downside where the sites often slowed down.
How Chrome’s New Strict Extension Isolation Works
The search engine giant explained that the new Strict Extension Isolation works by prevents extensions from sharing a process with each other when Chrome is over the process limit. Although the tech giant firm didn’t say that this new feature is simply Sandboxing, experts and other critics still claimed that the new Chrome Strict Extension Isolation works like Sandboxing for Chrome extensions.
Aside from the new Strict Extension Isolation command, the tech giant company is also focusing on its other services. These include Google Photos, which could allow users to pay for their images’ storage. Starting on June 1, you will only have 15 GB of free storage to use. If you need more space, it will cost you.
The search engine giant said that “since so many of you rely on Google Photos to store your memories, it’s important that it’s not just a great product, but also continues to meet your needs over the long haul.” It added that “in order to welcome even more of your memories and build the popular photo app for the future, we are changing our unlimited High-quality storage policy.
As of the moment, many Google Photos users are really disappointed with the update. However, you need to remember that the tech giant company still needs to earn money so that it can continuously improve its services and other essential products.
