Chrome 91 is now available in a stable phase since last week. The new ChromeOS offers a handful of new features. Everything is taken care of from major visual controls to minor changes like enhanced one-time password autofill service. Apart from these features, the new channel also drives some under the hood performance improvement, making it 23% faster than the predecessor.
The “Under the hood” changes mentioned above make the new Chrome channel faster and more efficient. Let’s take a look at these changes.
- Google has made some improvements to the V8 engine that boosts the performance at a significant rate. To be more precise, Google has kicked off “a new Sparkplug compiler and short built-in calls”. This apparently saves “over 17 years” of CPU time for Chrome users each day.
He further writes, “calling functions that are further away from your generated code can cause CPU-internal optimizations to fail.” The built-in functions are copied into the same memory region as the generated code to avoid optimization failures.
These changes make the new Chrome channel faster than before. Google says there are more improvements to come for its browser. Hold on and stay tuned till we get any further information on the update and changes.
