Google Update Speeds up Chrome on Windows

While 15% is nothing groundbreaking, a 15% boost in performance is always nice and will probably be noticeable. Many times, performance improvements are theoretical only, but the code tweaks that Google has done on their browser actually make some real-world difference. Thanks to Micorosoft Visual Studios tools, Google has made your browsing life a little less painful.

Starting with the Chrome 53 release of 64-bit Chrome and version 54 of the 32-bit version, Google started using Microsoft’s so-called Profile Guided Optimization technology to speed up startup times (by 17 percent), new tab page load times (by almost 15 percent), and overall page load times (by 6 percent) in Chrome.
