New updates state that Google Chrome now loads pages up to 20 percent faster on average when compared to last year. As fans already know, V8 was created alongside Chrome and now the V8 team has revealed some information about how they have improved the engine's performance over the past year.
But early last year, the V8 team started to measure performance with higher fidelity by instrumenting snapshots of popular web pages such as Reddit, Facebook, Wikipedia, and Twitter, according to Android Police.
The analysis conducted by the V8 team was able to demonstrate that even though peak performance benefits some types of large web applications, browsing websites relies heavily on startup performance, or sometimes the speed it takes to start running script. They were also able to implement optimizations using the insights from real-world performance data.
The optimization was also able to enhance the mean page load between Chrome 49 and Chrome 56 by up to 20 percent, depending on CPU architecture. It is reported that the web page snapshots also allowed the V8 team to analyze the differences between several benchmarks and real web workloads.
It is believed that even though there is no benchmark that can be a representative proxy for all sites, the Speedometer benchmark seems to be an approximation of many sites because of the inclusion of real web frameworks like Angular, React, jQuery and Ember. It is reported that chrome has indeed enhanced as loading video is much improved, GPU-intensive features now run faster and most background tabs are throttled.
