In their endeavour to provide users with faster browsing experience, Google Chrome’s latest update will compress websites 26% more ensuring they open seamlessly even on handheld devices. In order to achieve this, Google is using a new compression algorithm called Brotli. It is an improvement over the previous algorithm Zopfli. With the naming Google also continues their fixation with food as Brotli means a specific type of Swiss pastry.

As confirmed by Google’s Ilya Grigorik, Brotli is ready to release and it is open source as well. Among the giants, Mozilla has announced that they will use the Brotli algorithm for Firefox browser. The new update will focus towards speed, data conservation and battery conservation. As many Chrome users may have already noticed, the browser has stopped loading videos on the background and only loads videos on active tabs.
