Internet outages are common in Pakistan with some going without online connectivity for days at a time. Luckily, Google has added some genuinely necessary components to its web program for disconnected clients.
Last year, Google added a new feature to Chrome allowing you to download web pages. You could then view those pages without the need of internet connectivity.
According to Google’s statistics, more than 45 million pages are downloaded every week.
Now, thanks to the success of that feature, the search engine giant is announcing a bunch of new additions to improve the “offline browsing experience”.
Lets take a look at the new features for offline users.
This option lets you save any web page by long pressing on a link and selecting “Download Link” from the menu that shows up. This will save the page for offline viewing and can be accessed at any time until you delete it yourself.
Download Later and Offline Badge
In the event that you are experiencing a internet outage, this one is for you. On the off chance that you open a site and keep running into the recognizable “You are disconnected” page (the one with the dinosaur) you can basically tap on “Download Link Later”. Chrome will then download the website page whenever you go back online..
It’s currently simpler to get to the saved offline web pages. You should simply open another tab on Chrome and look down to “Downloads”. You’ll see any pages saved offline labeled with a dark ticked identification.
These updates are available for Google Chrome on Android.
Earlier, Wall Street Journal reported that the most used browser in the world,Google Chrome, is going to get a built-in adblocker in the future.
To use the new offline features, you can now download the latest version of Chrome for your mobile OS.
