Technically speaking, what makes Google Chrome fast?

December 3rd, 2009

We’re always happy to hear that you’re enjoying Google Chrome’s speed, and we’ve often been asked what makes Google Chrome so fast — from its snappy start-up time, and fast page-loading, to the ability to run complex web applications quickly.

For those of you who’d like to dive into the full technical intricacies on what makes Google Chrome a fast and responsive browser, we’ve put together video interviews to walk through some of the engineering involved. In particular, we take a look at the inner workings of DNS pre-resolution, the V8 JavaScript engine, and DOM bindings. In a future post, we’ll also cover other important aspects of Google Chrome’s speed, such as WebKit and UI responsiveness.

You can watch these interviews below – or for more details, check out the Chromium blog and the Google Chrome YouTube channel.
