Chrome for Android now displays desktop pages more clearly


Google has updated Chrome for Android and iOS today, bringing some much-need improvements to the way the former renders desktop pages.

The company’s browser has quickly been gaining steam on mobile devices, especially since it is now installed by default on all new Google-certified products. Chrome 36 for Android brings generic performance improvements and bug fixes, but also makes non-mobile pages look better across all screen sizes and resolutions. It does this by determining how much anti-aliasing to use, depending on the font being rendered and the device’s hardware acceleration capabilities.

Chrome for iOS also received a small update, bringing limited Chromecast streaming support for a number of HTML5-based video sites like YouTube. This feature rolled out in the last major Chrome for Android version, so it’s great to see it on iOS as well.
