There are some Internet browsers – but Google Chrome is the undisputed leader: Chrome has a global market share of around 66 percent. Safari has to be satisfied with around ten percent and is at least in second place (see Statista). Even if Google’s browser is said to be fast and rich in functions – users complain about its hunger for resources at regular intervals. The developers, in turn, always argue that they have fine-tuned Chrome’s efficiency. So this time too: in one Blog post one goes into the improvements of version 89. These are extensive in both Windows and macOS: The storage space of tabs that are kept in the background has been reduced by eight percent. In some cases this corresponds to a saving of one GiB. The throttling of inactive tabs has also been optimized: The CPU is now not used as much, which should heat the Mac less, according to the developers.
New coming-of-age drama: “Cherry”
There are not too many films on the Apple TV + streaming platform. Today, however, there is a new addition for all subscribers: The Drama Cherry by Anthony and Joe Russo. The 141 minute long film tells the life of the young American Cherry (played by Tom Holland), who breaks off his studies and joins the army. There he does his job as a medic in Iraq.
When Cherry returns to the United States, he is celebrated as a hero there – and from then on suffers from an undiagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder. The former soldier finds no connection with the majority society and makes ends meet as an outsider. Cherry gradually becomes addicted to heroin and seeks ways to finance the addiction. That leads him into crime. The coming-of-age story is based on the novel of the same name by Nico Walker.
