Nuance: Chrome’s Web pages load faster using proprietary compression algorithm




Google continues its compression algorithm in the upcoming release of its browser Chrome. Brotli must primarily static content on https sites can pack more efficiently. However, integration of Brotli will temporarily not make browsing faster, as claimed by many media.

Brotli in Chrome That the upcoming integration of Brotli in Chrome loading websites will make faster, is under more and Android Planet, who, in turn, seem to have taken over from Engadget. However, this can only apply when visitors visit sites that offer content that is compressed with Brotli. This currently applies to almost any site. Moreover Brotli only works for HTTPS traffic and not for regular visits to many sites. Google would soon be able to equip its own servers Brotli support.

There seems to be Brotli support in nginx. Many sites use nginx instead of Apache or IIS, both So no support for Brotli seem to get. Google will be incorporating compression algorithm in version 49 of Chrome and now the feature is already used in the Canary version of the browser, which is at version 50. Brotli them is to manually set by typing chrome: // flags to select # enable-Brotli in the address bar and in the dropdown ‘on’ or ‘enabled’.

As many servers will support Brotli that can actually have a positive effect on include the time it takes for pages to load on slow connections and data usage. Among other CloudFlare has already benchmarks done on a test server to measure the performance of Brotli compared include gzip. When a large part of the content servers will compress with Brotli, is currently not clear. It is known that Mozilla also wants to the algorithm used in Firefox.

Google announced its algorithm for compression in September, while a Google engineer on Google+ did know that it would come in Chrome.
