Google Will Be Rolling Out The Speed Badging Feature Soon

The users have to wait for too long for a few of the websites to load and it is found to consume most of their patience. Thus, Google has decided to come to the rescue of the users by having the sites sorted as per their loading speed. The tech giant does not plan to name or shame the websites by posting comments but instead have them arranged properly. This year, Chrome will have its web speeded up and that will be basically done through the use of certain tools that can help identify sites or web apps that load faster. The idea of labeling slow sites can encourage the developers to take undue advantage of such tools.

The major motto is to help spot the sites that are slow due to their longer loading time. Google will help one know if the site is going to take time to load depending on the device or connectivity. On the other hand, it will be rewarding the sites that are quicker in terms of loading and will be tagged as speed badging. Google is working on several options to help tag the sites based on their speed either slow or fast. Google plans to change color or display messages to help users know about the speed of the site. Google has not yet declared when it will be rolling out the speed badging feature. There is surety it may be added in Chrome but it is definite that the tech giant wants to make web faster.

On a similar note, Google was in the news for something unexpected. The tech giant has been found guilty of using tens of millions of Americans’ health data to help create new, AI-driven technology. The company has been using the patients’ names, health histories, birth dates, and other personal details for some time now. The organizations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) have found to let hospitals share the patients’ details with Google. Project Nightingale is the tech leader’s initiative that has given almost 150 of its employees to have access to the patient details. The patient’s data are also being used by others like Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon.
