Google Chrome 26% Faster Leaves Microsoft Explorer In Slow Lane

X

After stripping Microsoft Explorer of market share, Google has now cranked up the speed of their Chrome browser by as much as 26%.According to Google’s own Octane tests, Chrome has gained a total of 26.3 percent in speed since version 15, which was released in October 2011.

Google Software Engineer and Compiler Expert Toon Verwaest claims that Chrome is updated every six weeks. He claims it is like “a mechanic stopping by every six weeks to give your car a new engine.”

The latest Chrome beta release, Chrome 24, is available for all to try before its changes are implemented in an official Chrome update. It raises the browser’s speed even further, wrote Verwaest.

Google designed a JavaScript benchmark test called “Octane” specifically to “measure performance of real-world applications on the modern web.”

Google claims “stability sometimes takes higher priority.” Google is “still manic about improving Chrome’s speed” and that changes to Google Cloud Print and the browser’s start-up time have made Chrome faster, as well as new automated tests designed to detect any code that might slow the browser down.

“Speed is one of our core principles,” Verwaest wrote, “so rest assured we’ll continue to make Chrome faster in every way possible.”

In May, Chrome overtook Internet Explorer and became the web’s top browser.
