New Update Allows Google Chrome’s Page Refreshing Up to 28% Faster

Google has teamed up with Facebook and Mozilla to make page reloads in Chrome for desktop and mobile faster than before. According to Google’s data, reloading sites with the latest version of Chrome, called Chrome 56, should now be about 28% faster.
When reloading a web page, the browser usually checks with the web server if cached resources are still usable, resulting in hundreds of network requests per page issued to dozens of domains (a process called revalidation). With the new update, Chrome has enabled a simplified reload behavior that maximizes the reuse of cached resources, by validating only the main resource.
Google says that this process consumes less bandwidth, power, and latency.

Chrome 56 is available on desktop, with Android and Chrome OS versions coming soon.
