Google Chrome Will Now Reload Web Pages Faster Than Ever Before
Well, everyone hates the slow refresh/reload performance of web browsers. If you spend lots of time on a computer to browse the internet, then you might have faced the window crashed issue.
There is good news for all Google Chrome users. Google announced today that it has worked with Facebook and Mozilla to make page reloads for desktop and mobile much faster.
Gooogle even shared the tested data, and the result shows that the reloading speed with the latest version (likely v56) of Google Chrome should now be about 28% faster. So, you might be thinking how was this possible? Well, Chrome requests hundreds of network request every time a user visits or revisits a page. So, in the latest version, the browser just validates the primary resource ( that the browsers believes that it need to be validated)
So, in simple words, Google is changing the way Google Chrome handles what is known as “Validation.” Google’s Takashi Toyoshima wrote in a blog post “The existing reload behavior usually solves broken pages, but stale content is inefficiently addressed by a regular reload, especially on mobile.”
“This feature was originally designed in times when broken pages were quite common, so it was reasonable to address both use cases at once,”
The latest update will not only reload your web pages faster, but it will also result in lower data consumption and energy. If you are running Google Chrome 56 or higher, you don’t need to do anything. If you were using an old version, then update your Google Chrome.
