Why Chrome Is Getting Faster

Back in 2010 Chrome had a 22% of the browser share -- just percentage points behind Internet Explorer. Firefox was the king of the hill in those days with a 43.5% share.

That was then, this is now. Chrome passed IE and Firefox long ago. Chrome has a 48.9 percentage point lead over Firefox, and it continues to grow. Now Google is about to roll-out the algorithm Brotli. What is interesting is Google's approach on Brotli. The article states, "Google made the code open-souce, meaning it can be used by any competing browser. Mozilla, for example, says it will use the code in Firefox."
