Technology Giant, Google, has announced that they will be releasing a new data compression alogrithm that provides more data compression at comparable speeds. This new alogrithm is called “Brotli” and will be 20-26 percent more efficient or faster than its predecessor “Zopfli“.
According to the statement made by the spokesperson of Googles compression team:
“The smaller compressed size allows for better space utilization and faster page loads. We hope that this format will be supported by major browsers in the near future, as the smaller compressed size would give additional benefits to mobile users, such as lower data transfer fees and reduced battery use.”
This new technology is also said to be featuring on other browsers in the near future. For now, the data compression alogrithm is for the Google chrome browser. Also reports state that the new alogrithm will likely feature on the latest Google chrome browsers. Read more
