Splash screens for Android
Normally mobile devices are less powerful than desktops which cause apps to take some time to open. With the addition of splash screen, the users will be able to see something that will be of some meaning to the users. With this Splash screen, the perceived performance will also increase. This new version of Chrome, when used on Android, will also bring Splash screens to the web apps when they are launched using Android home screen. The screen will be shown immediately even though the Chrome gets loading. Users can customize the screen and can set their name, icon, background color, and also the bar color for notification. The screen will disappear once the web app starts showing on the screen. This provides a more improved experience of loading.

Further improvement was made with the upgrading of the versions. The method in which Android used to handle the task processing was the main cause for this problem. Android Tried to do too much at a time case the overwhelming of the CPU and GPU, which caused the apps to slow down.
With the launch of Chrome 47, the web developers can now make the work run on the time when the user is not using the app of the device. This will improve the performance of the device. This feature can be found in mobile as well as for the desktop versions of Chrome.
