Hey gang,


It might be some postings on this already, but are there going to be any improvements on playing games using the Chrome browser for Android or iOS? Right now the games seem really slow and almost unplayable for mobile Chrome.

Chrome for iOS is just a reskinned version on the web view, which doesn't have acceleration for JavaScript, because apple doesn't let browser makers do differently - which is why Mozilla hasn't even bothered putting Firefox on iOS, because It would really still be a crippled version of safari made to look like Firefox. You shouldn't bother targeting ios chrome because of that.

Chrome for Android is amongst the fastest browsers on Android, much faster than the stock browser. Today's blog post covers some common performance issues on mobile - most often the problem is people designing their games to be far too heavy on processing than the mobile can handle.
