  • New feature bfcache on Google Chrome on Android

    Google has announced the creation of a new feature for the mobile version of the proprietary browser Chrome, allowing almost instantly load pages and save traffic. To do this, the search giant has developed a special technology of full caching.

    A new feature for the mobile version of Chrome called bfcache, which stands for back/forward cache. It is about caching an entire page, including JavaScript code. It is important to note that JavaScript elements do not work in the background, but are stored in quick access, thus preventing attackers from stealing users ' personal data or installing malicious applications on their devices.

    With full caching of previously open pages open instantly without downloading. The video below shows the difference between working with this function and without it:


    According to Google, 19% of sites viewed on mobile devices have already been opened. On personal computers, this figure is about 10%. Thus, frequently visited pages will load instantly without consuming additional traffic.

    According to Chrome developers, during 2019 they plan to test the bfcache function, and it will be built into the browser only in 2020.
