Google revealed a few months ago that Chrome achieved greater speeds on macOS, beating all other browsers, including Apple’s own Safari. The search giant now says the web browser has gained yet another speed boost on MacBooks.
The company says the latest version of Chrome is now 20% faster on Apple’s best laptops (opens in new tab). It registered a score of 360 based on Apple’s Speedometer, a benchmarking tool for measuring responsiveness.
“Three months ago, we recorded the highest score on Apple’s Speedometer — and now, Chrome is 20% faster on Mac, scoring over 360,” Google said in a tweet (opens in new tab).
Chrome’s new gains mark a significant increase from its previous milestone in March, when it picked up a speed increase of 7% over Safari. In that benchmark test, Apple tested and compared 300 browsers. Chrome topped all other browsers and even outmatched Safari by 15% in terms of graphics performance.
