chrome: Explained: How Google claims to have made Chrome faster than Safari on Mac

For years now Google Order The most popular browser in the world – both mobile and desktop. For those who use it Apples Device, Safari Offers features that switch them from Chrome A big reason was faster than safari Chrome On a MacBook or even an iPhone. However, Google Now claims that Chrome is on Mac Faster than safari. How did Google manage to do that? In a blog post, Google explained how it did it and we broke it down here.
Is Chrome really faster than Mac Safari?
At least Google says so. In a blog post, Max Christoph, senior director of Chrome Engineering, says that Chrome on Mac has so far achieved the highest score of any browser – 300 – on Apple’s Speedometer Browser Responsiveness benchmark.

How did Google manage to ‘bit’ safari the Mac?

Christoph explained that Google has changed a lot of performance in Chrome over the past year. Google Chrome, for example, has ThinLTO enabled, a build optimization strategy that inlines speed-critical parts of the code base, even when they span multiple files or libraries. Google says what it did was give it an extra speed bump that makes Chrome 7% faster than current Safari builds.
According to Google, the performance is also good in terms of graphics. Combined with recent graphics optimizations (e.g., pass-through decoder and out-of-process rasterization), Chrome’s graphics performance will be 15% faster than Safari’s. Google made a number of changes to Chrome on Apple’s M1-based Macs in late 2020 Google says Chrome is now 43% faster than just 17 months ago

Using the V8 SparkPlug compiler and small built-in call

Not only that, Google says that the other two contributors to Google’s speed were the V8 Sparkplug compiler and the small built-in call. “Sparkplug is a new mid-level JavaScript compiler for V8 that generates efficient code with low compilation overhead. Short built-in calls are used by the V8 JavaScript engine to locate code generated inside the device’s memory,” Google explained. This strategy enhances performance by avoiding indirect jumps when making function calls and makes a significant difference to Apple M1-based Macs.

Is the benchmark test a ‘real’ deal?

Not really, but as Google says, benchmarks are one of the many ways to measure browser speed. Benchmark scores can vary and this is not like everything else but gives a good indication of performance. Google claims that Chrome is actually faster and more efficient in everyday use.
