Chrome 56 Almost Shipped With A Feature That Could 'Break The Web'


Google is trying to add a feature to Chrome that gives a background tab a resource (bandwidth, etc) budget. This seems like a good idea especially when you consider Google and Microsoft are competing on how much battery life their browsers consume. The problem is many sites today are no longer static and read only like a newspaper. They're full blown web apps with live updates, notifications, chat widgets, etc. Imagine a stock trading application, or even worse, your live fantasy football draft not updating in time!
