Google Promises New Algorithm Will Make Chrome Run Faster
Google says their latest algorithm will significantly increase Chrome’s speed, with the ability to compress up to 26 percent more than the existing compression engine.
Brotli, as the new engine is called – will replace the existing Zopfli.
Google web performance engineer Ilya Grigorik says you can expect to see the speed jump in time for the next version of Chrome, which is always just a few weeks away.
Brotli “will help mobile Chrome users experience lower data transfer fees and reduced battery use.” Google also noted that Firefox will eventually get access to the compression algorithm, as well.
