It's Possible That Safari for iOS Will Teach Google Chrome a Thing or Two

It's normal practice to click on a link to check out the destination page and exit the page as soon as possible if it doesn't meet your requirements.

However, doing so consumes bandwidth and time, and the best browsers for Android are all about streamlining and simplifying everyday tasks.

Google Chrome

To this purpose, Google has implemented a feature in Chrome that substantially draws inspiration from Apple's Safari app for iOS. In doing so, Google is adopting a page from Apple's playbook.

Recently, a Chrome researcher and Android Police reader who uses the Twitter handle @Leopeva64 unearthed Google's intentions for a new feature to make it simpler for users to preview webpages.

The long-press menu in Chrome already includes a Preview Page option; however, the functionality of this new feature would be entirely different.

Users would have a better idea of what the pages look like, allowing them to make more educated judgments before opening them. It has been brought to our attention by Leopeva64 that many contributions in the Chromium Gerrit refer to functionality.

If implemented, it will cut down on the number of times users browse pages they are not interested in, hence reducing the amount of effort and bandwidth expended.
