Chrome 108: What Are The New Features?-GadgetAny
The new Google Chrome logo could have been different

A new release of Chrome is due at the end of another month. November 29, 2022 saw the launch of Google Chrome 108. This update brings an Energy Saver mode, improved high-resolution emoji support, and changes to how websites appear when viewed with virtual keyboards.

One frequent criticism about Chrome is how resource-intensive it can be. When using Chrome on battery power, Google is developing a new “Energy Saver” mode that can help you conserve some power.

Chrome desktop and Chromebook users can use the feature. It is hidden behind a feature flag as of the time of writing. When turned on, “Energy Saver” mode can be set to activate when the battery is 20% or lower or when the computer is unplugged.

When the keyboard glides up, everything moves slightly differently in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Google is giving site developers more control over how text on the page should adjust to the keyboard with Chrome 108.

Recent releases of Chrome don’t have as many significant new features. But there’s still a lot going on behind the scenes. Both the Chromium blog and Google’s developer site include articles describing many of these changes. Here, we’ll focus on a few modifications:
