Posted: 04:37PM

Google is getting ready to roll out a new compression algorithm, known as Brotli, that will be able to compress data up to 26% more than its current offering. First announced last September, Brotli will replace the current engine known as Zopfli. Users will see improved load times in the next release of Chrome and other browsers, such as Firefox, will adopt the algorithm in the future. Brotli will also carry benefits for users of the mobile version of Chrome including "lower data transfer fees and reduced battery use."
