Google Chrome now loads web pages faster

Just like any other software, Google’s Chrome web browser receives constant updates throughout the year. The latest version of the web browser is Chrome 56, which improves page reload times.

Facebook’s help

Apparently, Facebook is behind the update as the social media giant let Google know Chrome reload times were subpar compared to browsers. Google proceeded to make the necessary modifications and now claims that Google Chrome will reload a lot faster by making the most out of the cached data stored by the browser.

There are several elements that are influenced by this change and all for the better. These include latency, energy consumption, and data consumption. They should be lower in comparison to pre-update Chrome.

To put a number on it, Facebook and Takashi Toyoshima of Google both confirmed the new improved Chrome is able to reload web pages 28% faster than it was a before the issue was looked into. One of the big issues revolved around validation. After the update, up to 60% less validation was requested by Google Chrome in comparison to what Facebook’s data detected prior. Although this is a very small update that isn’t likely to influence day to day web surfing a lot, it’s still nice to see that Google is always looking to improve its services.
