On March 8, 2017, Google released a new version of the Google Chrome browser. Google Chrome 57 runs on all major operating systems: Windows 10, Windows 7, macOS, Linux, Android and iOS. Chrome 57 fixed 36 security issues.
What’s new in version 57
The major changes in Chrome 57 include:
- Optimized background tabs to reduce CPU, memory and battery consumption.
- Added new Media Session API, so that the web application can not only display a notification when a new track starts playing, but also organize control from the notification area or through the screensaver interface, such as placing pause buttons, moving through the stream or skipping to the next track.
- Added support for CSS Grid Layout, a new method of layering grid-aligned page elements. The method is based on the idea of dividing the page into areas similar to a tabular layout with alignment by columns and rows.
- Removed interface for plugins management chrome://plugins. The Widevine, Flash, Nacl (Native Client) and PDF plug-ins, which are positioned as built-in functionality in the browser, will be activated by default, even if they were previously disabled in the chrome://plugins
- When playing videos full screen on the Android platform, the screen orientation is now selected based on the proportions of the video.
- Added new properties for the text-decoration CSS element to allow you to enable visual effects, such as adjusting the style and color of the line.
