Chrome 59 for Android promises to load pages faster and use less memory
by Cosmin Vasile / Jun 07, 2017, 12:49 AM
The newest version of Google's main browser, Chrome had been recently released for Mac, Windows, and Linux, but Android users have been skipped from the initial roll-out.
Today, Google announced it has kicked off the deployment of Chrome 59 for Android. Despite the fact that the changelog is very short, the new browser includes some well-worth under the hood improvements.
Back in April, Google detailed an upcoming Chrome update, which was supposed to further improve the loading speed of webpages by 10 or 20%. Apparently, Chrome 59 brings exactly these enhancements, along with a couple of stability fixes.
Although Chrome 59 has already been released, the developers claim the new version will be available on Google Play over the course of the next week.

Depends on your phone For Exynos phones, Samsung Internet is typically faster For SD phones, they are about the same, but Samsung Internet with an ad blocker will be faster Samsung Internet is based of Chromium (like Google Chrome) So Samsung Internet will probably be updated to include these improvements soon

I'm not sure I fully understand what the author is saying. I have had Chrome pre-installed as the default browser for the last 4-5 phones i've owned. Some were Samsung and some were Motorola. Why does he say "Android users have been skipped from the initial roll-out."?
