Google Chrome 59 For Android Arrives With Big Speed Boost
Google rolled out Chrome 59 for desktop platforms earlier this week, and now it’s time for Android to get the same treatment. While Chrome 59 for Android (59.0.3071.92) obviously doesn’t have the native desktop notification improvements found in the macOS version or Headless Chromium, it does bring changes that make your browsing experience even better.
Chrome 59 for Android also adds support for animated PNGs (APNGs), which offers functionality similar to that of animated GIFs, with the added benefit of 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency. APNGs has been in use in Firefox for years, and support joined the Apple universe last year with via iMessages in iOS 10.
