Google has announced that its Chrome browser is now up to 23 percent faster and saves users 17 years of CPU time daily.
“In M91, Chrome is now up to 23 percent faster with the launch of a new Sparkplug compiler and short built-in calls, saving over 17 years of our users’ CPU time each day.
“Short built-in calls optimize where in memory we put generated code to avoid indirect jumps when calling functions,” Google said in an update.
Short builtins is a mechanism by which the V8 engine optimizes the location in memory of generated code.
“This change is especially impactful for the new Apple M1 chip,” Google said.
Microsoft also released version 91 of its Chromium-based Edge browser this week. The company claimed “sleeping” tabs now save up to 82 percent of the demand on memory.
