Chrome 92 will speed up the loading of web pages on Windows, Linux and macOS

Chrome 92 will allow web pages to load even faster on Windows, Linux, and macOS. This improvement, already available on the Android version of the web browser, allows Chrome to remember pages that have been closed by the user. The pages accessible via the Next or Previous button, therefore, load instantly.

Chrome 92 will speed up the loading of web pages on Windows, Linux and macOS

In November 2020, Google added a feature to speed up the loading of web pages on Chrome 86 for Android. Also, in March 2021, the company has added a new feature to Chrome 89 to improve the performance and less RAM consumption. The function, called "back-forward cache," keeps the pages that have just been closed by the Internet user in the cache. De facto, when the user clicks on the Next or Previous button, the web page is displayed almost instantly on Chrome for Android.

On the desktop version of Chrome 92, the content of closed web pages is immediately deleted. This precaution allows Google to reduce the consumption of RAM of the web browser. The other side of the coin: web pages opened using the Next or Previous button do not load instantly. On Windows, macOS, and Linux, Chrome must reload the web page every time.


According to information from our colleagues at Windows Latest, Google is currently testing the integration of the "back-forward cache" function in Chrome on Windows, macOS, and Linux. This option has been under development for several years. It is currently already available on the Canary version, dedicated to beta-testers, on desktop.

Also, Techdows spotted "memories" in the most recent builds of Chrome Canary of version Chrome 92. By navigating to the URL "chrome://memories," you will go to a page that is almost similar to that of history in Chrome.

Once activated, the pages you have previously viewed will load automatically. "The back cover is a browser feature that improves the user experience by keeping a page active after the user has moved away from it and reuses it to make navigation in the history of the session smoother (back navigation buttons / forward, etc.) and make navigation instantaneous.

The cache pages are frozen and no longer execute any javascript," explains Google in a document that appeared online. The option will need to be activated manually.

According to Windows Latest, Google will deploy this new feature for all users with Chrome 92. The latest news is that the 92nd iteration of the browser in the final and stable version will be deployed on July 20, 2021.
