Chrome 55 for Android Brings Downloads for Offline use
Chrome 55 is a major update to the chromium browser and the update comes with some laudable features for Mac, Windows, Linux and Android. In a bid to pull the plug on flash the browser is based on HTML 5 by default. The offline viewing feature is something that Chrome Browser users would instantly fall in love and along with that Google claims to have ended the resource hogging nature of the Chrome browser.
The new save icon on the top of the menu will now let Chrome users save the entire page along with the text and the images. The audio and the video items on the web page will come with a save icon that will let you start the download in the background. The Downloads screen will now give access to the saved content which also includes the media files.
The content is aggregated on the basis of its type, for instance, web pages are stored in Pages section while the Video, Audio, Images, and Documents get a section of their own. Also, users can share the downloaded items without actually exiting the browser.
The Chrome 55 update is already rolled out for Mac, Windows, and Linux users. Updates for the Android users are being rolled out incrementally, as always if you want to get the latest update you can download an installable apk from here.
