With over 1 billion users, Chrome is the platform that developers must pay the most attention to when it comes to optimizing how their applications are being used by end-users and how they perform in general.
This week Google launched a new version of Chrome (v45) for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android and it will force a significant shift in how content is being served. Chrome now automatically pauses "less-imporant" Flash content (a feature that is being gradually introduced) that isn't "central to the Web page" while keeping the primary content playing without interruption. For example, a video currently being watched will be unaffected, while animations in a sidebar will be paused (anything Chrome pauses can be resume by just clicking on it). The goal, according to the company, is to increase page-load speed and reduce power consumption.
