Google Chrome, a leading freeware web browser, is going to roll out a new algorithm to make it much faster. This tech giant declares that, they will make the change in the next few days. They have named the new algorithm as “Brotli”. Zopfli, the existing algorithm, that is regarded as the most size-efficient DEFLATE encoder will be replaced by Brotli. This technology will bring huge speed bumps to the users using the Google-innovated browser.
Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of Google Chrome, says that it will allow the consumers to get “lower data transfer fees and reduce battery use”, because they have cut out the amount of information that computers have to download. Definitely, it will increase usage of market share. Presently, it avails 25% usage share of the web browsers crossing the IB and the Firebox.
Reasons behind the new algorithm, Brotli
Google Chrome is poised to be faster than before. It has confirmed that, Brotli will allow the browser to compress information up to 26 percent faster. They make it because, they think that internet users always emphasize on time. Most of the people feel annoying when they face longer time issues on browsing or loading. In this highly competitive market, users are not relying on one browser always. They prefer the faster browsers. This browser is in the second position of the public choice. Its users should not have to wait long for a webpage load. Google had announced in a September blog post , when it first declared this Algorithm, “Because fast is better than slow. Users must welcome the faster web browsing and page loading time.”
Last year in September, this high tech company had released version 45 of Chrome. This version was old and had some unnecessary pages, which consumed more times and power. They had promised to make pages load faster and save battery in that version. In recent version, Chrome has aggressively wiped out the old and unused memory.
However, Chrome users are not allowed to load videos in recent update. They now have to click on a tab to load a video or streaming media file to load in background tabs. Brotli does not come into the market yet. It is now in the development stage. Therefore, we should wait until the next public release to get any major updates.
