And when you open a lot of tabs on a computer a few years old, the fan starts spinning, battery life drops, and your system starts to slow down.
The device struggles to run apps, games, or the RAM-consuming web browser.
Usually the usual solution is to upgrade to a more powerful device, but the new startup is named Mighty She suggests an alternative solution: a web browser on a powerful server in the cloud for $ 30 per month.
And if you’re reading this article, chances are you’re doing so through a Chromium-based browser, either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
These two browsers have a combined market share of more than 75 percent, with Safari, Firefox and other browsers taking smaller percentages of the rest.
Instead of your physical computer interacting with every website, you can broadcast a remote web browser instead, so that the browser resides within a powerful computer many miles away with an internet connection of 100 Mbps.
According to the company, websites load almost instantly and dense web applications run smoothly without the monopoly of RAM, processor, graphics card and battery, regardless of the number of tabs open within the Google Chrome browser.
Mighty is based on the core concept popularized by Stadia and other gaming services, and these efforts emerged after two years of development with the slogan Make Chrome Browser Faster.
Over the past two years, Mighty has built a dedicated server to keep costs down, created a low-latency networking protocol, and shaped Chromium to integrate directly with several low-level coding technologies.
The browser also interoperates with macOS features, and all the demos are across Apple devices.
The basic internet speed mentioned on the launch site is 100 Mbps, and for comparison, 4K Stadia requires 35 Mbps or more.
The Google Chrome browser is powered by 16 virtual CPUs that work via dual Intel Xeon processors up to 4 GHz, NVIDIA GPUs, and 16 GB RAM.
And the cloud browser works at 4K and 60fps resolution, with Mighty promising that you won’t feel lag while typing, moving your mouse, or scrolling.
On the privacy front, the keystrokes are encrypted when sent to the hosted cloud device, and the company will have a third party auditing the code and its infrastructure annually.
The company says: Everything from cookies to your browsing history is kept private and will never be sold.
It is reported that Google is working to address complaints about Google Chrome browser problems through various technologies and improvements, but Mighty’s approach is to broadcast your browser from a powerful computer in the cloud.
