Chrome 34 launches with support for responsive images
Google today released Chrome version 34, includes support for responsive images, an unprefixed version of the Web Audio API, and importing supervised users.
The headline addition is support for srcset, a new HTML attribute which allows web developers to specify multiple copies of a single image, with a range of resolutions.
The idea is that the client device then requests the most appropriate version, so you might see a high-res image on your desktop, but a smaller, more bandwidth-friendly copy on your phone.
Here’s the Chrome 34 changelog provided by Google:
. Responsive Images and Unprefixed Web Audio.
. Import supervised users onto new computers.
. A number of new apps/extension APIs.
. A different look for Win8 Metro mode.
. Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance.
