Google Chrome now reloads pages faster

It’s now 28 percent faster to refresh a page on Google Chrome, according to a blog post from the Mountain View, California-based company.

The tech giant said this improvement is possible due to changes made in how its browser handles what is known as “validation.”

Until now, every time a user visited or revisited a page, Chrome needed to validate hundreds of variables. In the latest version, only the “main resource” needs to be verified — or in other words, things that may have been changed and need to be validated.
