Chrome Compresses Web Pages for Android and iOS
Google has updated its Chrome browser for both the Android and iOS platforms. Chief among the new features of the browser is a better compression algorithm that should, claims Google, reduce the amount of data consumed by the browser up to 50% when surfing the web. Both platforms also gain better protection against malicious web sites. The Android version of Chrome now allows users to create web shortcuts on the home screen, and the iOS version lets users see and access the automatic translation bar. Chrome is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
