Google Chrome already dominates the browser market, but the search-engine tech giant refuses to rest on its laurels. Google published a new blog post boasting nearly Chrome’south speed functioning, and if I were Apple tree, I’d be sweating bullets.

Google says Chrome is the fastest browser on macOS to date, leaving Safari and other browsers in its dust. Safari, securing 10% of the desktop browser market share, is the world’s 2d-most used desktop browser adjacent to Google Chrome (65%). Safari may lose ground if Chrome continues to outshine the Apple browser on its own turf.

Chrome outperforms macOS Safari

Google claims that Chrome (version 99) is a speed creature, flying past all macOS browsers during its performance testing. “Chrome on Mac has achieved the highest score to engagement of whatever browser – 300 – in Apple’s Speedometer browser responsiveness benchmark,” Senior Director of Chrome Engineering Max Christoff said.

Chrome on macOS is reportedly vii% faster than electric current builds of Safari, making the Google browser fifty-fifty more bonny to Mac users while Safari struggles to secure more marketplace share. You may be wondering, “What, exactly, did Google practise to make Chrome faster?”

Well, according to Christoff, the Google team implemented a “build optimization technique” chosen ThinLTO; it likewise enhanced the browser’s graphics processing. As such, Google boasts that Chrome’s graphics performance is xv% faster than Safari.

“Overall, since launching Chrome on M1-based Macs in tardily 2020, Chrome is at present 43% faster than it was only 17 months ago,” Christoff said. It’south worth noting that Google compared the two browsers, Chrome and Safari, on an M1 Max-equipped xiv-inch MacBook Pro.

Google besides recorded impressive results later on tweaking the Android-based Chrome browser. Loading pages with the Google spider web crawler is at present 15% faster on Android devices. Christoff attributed the improvement to “prioritizing disquisitional navigation movements.”

This report may light a burn under Apple’s backside. If there’s anything we know about the Cupertino-based tech giant, information technology has a penchant for ensuring that its products are the fastest. Chrome is alee for now, simply that may change in a flash once Apple works its magic on Safari.
