The Popular browser among everyone known as Google Chrome has a lot of ad issues when it comes to multiple scam sites. Looks like Google listened to the community once again and finally come up with a solution to fix the ad problems for the users that will save data and battery.
According to the Chromium Blog, a small percentage of ads consume huge amounts of resources in your device. The shocking thing was these consume your battery and data without even you knowing about it. One of the mentioned examples was ads that mine cryptocurrency which is poorly unoptimized for different types of networks.
The reports of Google mentioned by Vale showed that while 0.3% of ads are available, they account for 27% network usage and 28% of CPU usage. Ads from various unknown sites are the main reason you are always reaching the data limit in a short amount of time.
The efficient solution to this problem has been in development by Google. Google Chrome is going to limit the resources a particular ad uses and if the ad reaches its limit, the ad frame will result in an error. A demonstration from the blog is shown below.
All the ads that appear in Google Chrome have been monitored for the limit they consume your data and have been forced to stop accordingly. Here are some points the blog mentioned regarding what are the exact measures Google has taken for Chrome. The ads will show errors in the following cases.
- CPU usage of more than 60 Seconds
- CPU usage of 15 seconds in any 30 second period
- Consumption of 4MB data.
The news might not be good for all the miners for whom ads were important, but it is a huge leap by Google towards improving the user experience. Google says they are going to test this for a couple of months before launching it somewhere around august. This will give a lot of time for all the ad workers to set their programs for Google Chrome accordingly.
“With these changes, Chrome is continuing to help ensure that people have good browsing experiences both on the screen and behind the scenes.”, Vale said in the blog post.
