Now the perfect browser?
For years, users have been complaining about scrolling issues with Google Chrome on Android. The same Chrome browser works flawlessly on iOS with smooth scrolling. It looks like Google has identified the scrolling issue and has prepared a fix that will be part of the Android 14 update.
The problem seems to be at the operating system level: Android’s built-in touch input algorithm stutters a lot, and to overcome this problem, the respective companies have developed their own input algorithm for better scrolling. But Chrome browser can’t switch due to web compatibility issues. To solve this problem, Google introduced a new API in Android 14 that allows Chrome to offer a better scrolling experience.
An API called the Nanosecond API allows programs to sample touch input at nanosecond intervals rather than millisecond intervals. The result of its use is quite obvious, since the developers even published a video in which Redmi 9A uses the nanosecond and millisecond API in parallel. Scrolling is twice as smooth as the previous API.
Finally, Chrome for Android gets iPhone-like smooth scrolling support in Android 14. To use smooth scrolling in Chrome for Android, your device must be on the latest version of Android.
Samsung has already launched the Android 14-based OneUI 6.0 beta for select devices such as the Galaxy S23, Galaxy A54 and Galaxy A34 5G. For some devices, the program works in the USA, China, India, Germany and South Korea. More devices will soon connect to the app and have access to the latest Android 14 version.
