Google has announced that its Chrome web browser is getting a speed boost in the latest release thanks to several under-the-hood performance improvements, resulting in a significant new performance milestone across Mac and Android.
“The faster the browser, the more enjoyable your browsing experience will be. With the latest release of Chrome, we went under the hood of Chrome’s engine to seek every opportunity to increase speed and efficiency, from better caching to better memory management,” Google said in a blog post.
Over the course of three months, a series of tweaks gave Chrome a 10 percent lead on Apple’s Speedometer 2.1 browser benchmark, according to Google. Changes include everything from better caching to better memory management.
Furthermore, the company said that Chrome on Android has always been optimized for a small footprint, but the Android ecosystem is diverse and includes devices with different levels of capabilities. To improve Chrome’s performance on high-end devices, Google is now targeting them with a version of Chrome that uses compiler flags optimized for speed instead of binary size.
For capable devices, these versions of Chrome run the Speedometer 2.1 benchmark up to 30 percent faster.
