Google chrome back in that time was the fastest web browser, but in recent days chrome has alot of blotware.
Google is constantly working on chrome to make it faster and now Google hopes to change that with its new Brotli compression algorithm, which will take the place of its current Zopfli counterpart.
Brotli uses a “new data format” to allow for 20 to 26 percent higher compression ratios than what’s possible with Zopfli.
We show that Brotli is roughly as fast as zlib’s Deflate implementation,At the same time, it compresses slightly more densely than LZMA and bzip2 on the Canterbury corpus. The higher data density is achieved by a 2nd order context modeling, re-use of entropy codes, larger memory window of past data and joint distribution codes -said Google software engineer Zoltan Szabadka in September 2015
Brotli will be available to users with next Chrome release according to Google web performance engineer Ilya Grigorik. Due this update all chrome users will have fast page loading times and will be battery efficient due to lower data transfer fees.
