The two tech giants, Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) are finding some fun ways to one up each other. The latest is that Google Chrome will run faster, loading web pages with at least 26% more speed. On the other hand, Apple is equipping its iOS devices with some special tools to make recording a better experience for aspiring DJs and musicians.
In the past few months, Firefox has surpassed Google Chrome in popularity as the latter has been running comparatively slower. But with the latest update, Chrome will be using lass data thereby increasing its speed even when browsing on a Smartphone. Engineers at the Company have come up with a compression algorithm called Brotli that will replace the Zopfli algorithm and the tech giant is confident that it will help boost the speed of Chrome.
To increase the speed of internet on Smartphones, Google earlier had rolled out a Data Save mode on Chrome. It helped reduce the amount of data used when opening a web page. The new Data Saver mode from Chrome is specially developed for Android users and saves around 70% of data usage while browsing.
Apple innovations for creative people
Apple has come up with several tools that can help aspiring DJs and musicians to produce better music and also understand the scope of their creativity. Music Memos, a new app will be able to interpret chord changes and chart them while recording.
What’s more, Music Memos will add drum tracks and bass to the recording based on its tempo, chord changes, and rhythm of the song. The popular Garage Band app for the iOS is also being equipped with a new feature called Live Loops. With the feature, the user can pick up various types of beat styles including EDM, Chill or House and then use them as a foundation for building different drops, fills and breaks.
