Google Chrome developing a 'Never-Slow Mode' that would load pages much faster

08 February 2019 2

Google Chrome, which is already one of the fastest web browsers out there continues to make efforts to get even quicker in addition to the rollout of interesting new features. Time is money, and Google values that not only through super quick Google searches that almost takes nanoseconds, but the speed aspect is reflected through its entire ecosystem of apps.

The latest commit to Google Chrome termed as ‘never-slow mode’ offers super quick web browsing. It achieves this by restricting resource loading and runtime processing thus loading web pages with large-scripts much faster. Note that this feature is yet in development and thus Google says that it could possibly break content.

This feature doesn’t cut down memory usage on the device, but instead restrict certain content from loading thus could break content as Google shares. The underdevelopment feature was first seen through Chrome Story saying, "an experimental browsing mode that restricts resource loading and runtime processing to deliver a consistently fast experience." The commit which dates back to last October says "PROTOTYPE - DO NOT COMMIT.". The list of caps is shared as below,

Per-image max size: 1MiB

Total image budget: 2MiB

Per-stylesheet max size: 100KiB

Total stylesheet budget: 200KiB

Per-script max size: 50KiB

Total script budget: 500KiB

Per-font max size: 100KiB

Total font budget: 100KiB

Total connection limit: 10

Long-task limit: 200ms

Currently, as the feature is under development, Google would surely do a lot of testing before it’s rolled out to developers so there is no need to worry about cracks here and there.
