Newest version of Chrome might feature background apps

Folks from Google are working hard on their Chrome browser, and according to the latest news, it seems that Google will add a new feature to its popular web browser.

So what is this new feature that Google will add? Well, according to the latest news, it seems that the newest version of Chrome will allow apps and extensions to run in background, even if your Chrome browser isn’t running.
This new feature sounds great if you want to get Gmail alerts for example, but background apps can open a new way for hackers to exploit them. For example, hackers can use these apps to track or monitor your processes, and compromise your security that way. Of course, we don’t doubt that Google will do its best to prevent such misuse.
As you can see, background running apps, can be quite useful, but there’s a certain degree of risk involved, and hopefully Google will try to minimize this.
