Google Chrome can now complete its main work faster. After the most recent update, searches through the search bar at the top of the browser (which Google calls the “omnibox”) now preload results faster than before before you click on them.
Browser speed statistics are vague in actual use, but Google says The most common search results are now four times more likely to appear within 500 milliseconds. This means that when you enter content and select one of the recommended options at the top of the results, you will get to the Google search results page faster.
The new improvement in search result speed only applies if you use Google as your default search engine (most people already do), but the company says that other search engines can take advantage of this feature and make some adjustments to how they work .
It is not clear whether this new update makes Google search faster in Chrome than in Firefox and Microsoft Edge, but this new technology is supported by Chrome’s unique “PartitionAlloc” memory allocator. “PartitionAlloc” is essentially how the program uses your PC’s RAM; in this case, it affects how the search results are stored. Previously, search results were stored through the cache, but this caused Chrome to take up a lot of RAM and often crash.
This new method of loading information before you need it is part of a larger rewrite of Chrome Earlier this yearAccording to Google, the update reduces RAM usage by 22% and speeds up other parts of the browser. For many years, people have been frustrated with how often Chrome consumes system memory. Now, Chrome can use these RAM savings to help improve the quality of life, such as faster access to search results.
