Google is bringing a data compression algorithm which was released in September 2015 to the Chrome browser. The Brotli compression algorithm compresses data, such as fonts and other intensive elements, more efficiently which results in faster load times. This will see a speed boost of 20 to 26 percent. This new algorithm replaces the two-year old Zopfli compression algorithm from Google. After such success and widespread adoption of Zopfli, Google has high hopes for Brotli.
In addition to a speed boost, the algorithm will cut battery usage for when they eventually bring it the mobile browser. The algorithm is currently in beta with desktop chrome users able to access it from the developer menu.
