I stumbled upon Techcrunch‘s post entitled Chrome Now Faster Than A Speeding Potato. Google’s Rube Goldberg-ian Video Proves It, where reveal the making of video for the videos (released tomorrow) that will show people just how fast the newest build of Google Chrome is as a browser. So how much fun exactly is it to work at Google? Watching this video, it seems that Geek Never Looked So Cool, at least to me.
Again, all of this is simply to highlight just how fast the latest build of Chrome is. And it is fast. Google says the beta release today (version 5) represents the “most significant speed and performance increases to date, with 30% and 35% improvement on the V8 and SunSpider benchmarks over the previous beta channel release.” Even more remarkable, “In fact, looking back in time, Chrome’s performance has improved by as much as 213% and 305% on these two benchmarks since our very first beta.” The first beta release was in September of 2008. Not even 2 years ago.
