With the latest Dev channel update, Chrome will defer playback of media elements until the page is foregrounded.
 
Google Chrome will now defer playback of autoplay media until the tab is foregrounded in the latest Dev Channel. This means no more "Where's that sound coming from?" moments when an ad for instance decides to autoplay in a tab you've specifically opened in the background.

Resources will still be preloaded if indicated but Chrome will delay the start of playback until you actually visit the tab.

This cool feature prevents obviously user annoyance but also conserves power as Chrome will only consume power once the tab is foregrounded.

Yeah! That's how you build an app.

A new API for cooperative scheduling of background tasks, please give it a try and give us feedback!
 
First implementation of requestIdleCallback is in Chrome Canary!

What is it? It allows applications to cooperatively schedule background tasks such that they do not introduce delays to other high priority tasks that share the same event loop, such as input processing, animations and frame compositing. 

For more details on the API, the spec, and more examples, see:
https://w3c.github.io/requestidlecallback/

Finally, to get started:
- Boot up Chrome Canary
- Enable chrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features
- Restart the browser
- Experiment with rIC, ..., and please provide feedback!

Support for new preconnect hint is shipping in M46! Eager to test it out? It's also on by default in Chrome Canary.
 
Eliminating Roundtrips with Preconnect: http://bit.ly/1IYXbmU - hot new tool for your latency optimization toolkit! Live in Chrome Canary.

The preconnect HTML hint allows the application to tell the browser which sockets it will need ahead of initiating the actual requests; preconnect eliminates DNS, TCP, and TLS roundtrips from the request's critical path.

Im not so sure this proves anything, seems it's just a beefed up version of being able to collect data for a few days, then base your preloaded sites off of sheer luck...
Stop me if I'm just not seeing something but it's basically a way to make people feel like the next best thing is something that comes already stock in almost every basic Web-Browser...
If you have sockets pre-loaded your DNA server should be ready with out pre inhabition.
I don't mean to slam the product, and I could be completely mislead, buy if I can get a 'Free Sucker' Which taste just as good as the one for a (dollar) Well..... That just doesn't seem to Intrigued me..
Then Again, I'm not a Multi Billion Dollar Company, With nearly 78 Million dollars worth of taxes. ..
More power to the big guy!!

What are the properties that make the web the web? How can we keep differentiating from native to stay relevant in a mobile world?

" 69% of the visits abandoned our page. These users neither went to the app store nor continued to our mobile website."

Yes, it may only be one data point, but it's a very strong data point that users do not like interstitials! Instead using app install banners provides a much better user experience.

At least you don't have to click on 'no, I don't want your bloody app' every time you read'em.
