According to the Express.co Google Chrome has a cheeky hidden message for people who watch too much PORN
Google Chrome has hidden a cheeky message for people who use its Incognito Mode a little too much.
Google Chrome is a treasure trove of hidden messages, subtle nods and winks.
Google has also included a tongue-in-cheek message to people who use Incognito Mode, which allows users to browse the web without the Google Chrome saving your web history or form data.
The tab count in the top right-hand corner will transform into an old school smiley
If you reach 100 tabs on the Google Chrome app, the tab count in the top right-hand corner will transform into an old school smiley.
The tab counter appears as 🙂 on iOS, and 😀 on Android. You can check it out for yourself below…

Normal Incognito Tab in Google Chrome
While we would never presume to know what you are busy doing with so many Incognito tabs open (surprise birthday gifts?), Google has a subtle message that seems very appropriate.
Pass 100 Incognito tabs and the Android version of the Google Chrome app will replace the tab counter with a winking face ;).
Below is what the secret Incognito tab looks like…

People who load more than 100 Incognito tabs on iOS will be greeted with the same old school smiley that appears when loading standard tabs.
Google will now throttle background tabs that use excessive power
The news comes as Google Chrome pushed-out a new version of the app designed to make the hugely-popular web browser less resource-intensive.
According to the official Chromium blog, Google will now throttle background tabs that use excessive power– activity that accounts for a third of Chrome’s power usage on computers.
But unlike third-party solutions like the Great Suspender, the in-built solution included in Google Chrome version 57 will not suspend tabs playing audio or maintaining WebSockets or WebRTC connections alone.
The new browser intelligently checks your tabs after 10 seconds in the background to determine whether or not they can be throttled.
Google Chrome software engineer, Alexander Timin said: “Chrome will continue to take steps in this direction to prolong users’ battery life, while still enabling all the same experiences developers can build today.”
Chrome 57 is available to download now.
