On Tuesday, March 23, 2021, Google released the latest version of its web browser, Google Chrome 90. The release was made public on Chromium Blog that put forth how the overall turn-around time of the web browser will reduce to the minimum, that will, in turn, benefit the web application development company. Hence, making Chrome quicker and safer than ever before for web app development. On March 11, 2021, when the Chrome 90 was in its Beta version, it allowed the origin trials to try out the latest features to analyze the practical usage and performance as per the web standard community. Focusing on the latest, Chrome 90 is all set to deliver a fast web experience. The web browser now intuitively deploys https:// straightaway, strengthening the privacy along with the loading speed of the website that is certified to use https://.
What is “http://” or https://?
Further, anyone would wonder what is “http://” or https://. These are two protocols that allow communication to take place between two parties on the internet. Hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) lays down the rule for sending and receiving messages and images, even sound, over the internet. HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS), where the “s” stands for Secure, is a secure version of the previous HTTP protocol. In this protocol, the data transferred between the browser and the website. The website is secured or it is encrypted. That is during web app development, in particular, to safeguard the confidential data is sent through an online medium.
Chrome 90’s mechanism
Users tend to avoid writing “http://” or “https://” while manually typing the URL on the address bar of the browser. For instance, end-users usually type “address.com” in place of “https://address.com” in the browser’s address bar. So, before Chrome 90, when most of the web addresses were not HTTPS certified, the browser would by default choose http:// and try to open the website. But now on, Chrome by-default direct the typed addresses to https:// that do not write the protocol. That will further avoid the delay that used to happen earlier in navigating from “http://” to “https://”. On the contrary, for the websites that are not https:// certified, the Chrome 90 browser will get back to the http:// protocol after the attempt to open https:// fails.
So Chrome 90 has been brought to Google Chrome desktop and Google Chrome for Android platforms with an early release of the same for iOS platforms. On the top, all the web browsers appear the same. But with this update, it has taken a step forward in transforming all the websites to work on https:// as a default protocol to ensure the safe transfer of data. As a result, the web application development company gets a chance to offer a fast web experience by providing web app development in powerful browsers like these.
