Google Chrome’s ‘Brotli’ Compression Algo Makes Web Browser Load Pages Even More Faster

Now that the search giant has announced its future plans regarding Google Chrome. The Web browser is about to receive a serious boost in speed. Ready to introduce the new compression algorithm called ‘Brotli’, can make compress Internet data speeds increase up to 26% faster and further making browsing zipper than ever.

For those who like to use Chrome as their primary browser, think it leads web pages fast enough, you might be in luck. Google has now developed a new compression algorithm for the browser which will eventually sqeeze pages down by as much as 25 percent more than it does currently.

Designed to replace the one that Chrome browser right now uses, known as Zopfli. Brotli, is the new algorithm that actually means ‘small bread’ in Swiss German, which was been in development for quite some time now, the code is ready to roll, according to Google. However, the data-crunching increases that Brotli yeilds currently applies exclusively to HTTPS connections, so those websites with which you can establish a secure connection yo will benefit.

In other ways Google claims that it uses a “whole new data format” that manages to drill down web pages content by an impressive amount. On Chrome, users can easily tell if they’re using an HTTPS-enabled site by simply checking for the green lock symbol in the URL bar. Apparently, Google Chrome’s new algorithm ‘Brötli’ squaeshes down HTML, CESS and JavaScript by 17-25 percent more than Zopftli. And it does well while also achieving comparable decompression speeds, which might not surprise you to hear.

The new algorithm in Chrome Web browser allows for better space utilization and faster page loads. As per Google, it also provide “benefits to mobile users,” such as lower data transfer fees and reduced battery use. Great, isn’t it!

Brotli will be iterated by Google for its Chrome browser very soon, as it was announced in September as a big aspirations for its latest data compression algorithm. The serach company wants Brotli to be a data format that’s adopted by the world’s fastest growing competing browsers, like Firefox and Safari. Needless to say, we will soon b watching this spice up very closely.

Intestested ones can give it a try right away. Download Google’s developer-focused browser variant, Chrome Canary. Brotli’s potential roll out is likely to happen in coming weeks.
