Shiny Chrome.pngEver wonder what makes Google Chrome so fast? Take a look at this post.

Technically speaking, what makes Google Chrome fast? (Part II): “If you’ve dug around the many graphs that are displayed when you type ‘about:histograms’ into Chrome’s Omnibox, you’ll notice that we’re still obsessed about measuring, benchmarking, and improving speed and performance on the browser.

Previously, we published a series of video interviews on several key engineering pieces that go into designing a fast, responsive modern browser, namely DNS pre-resolution, the V8 JavaScript engine, and DOM bindings.

In this next installment of technical interviews on Chrome’s speed, we’ll dive into two more areas that contribute to Chrome’s speed: UI responsiveness and WebKit. “
