Why is Google Chrome so fast?

Last week, I got copy of  Google Chrome OS on the first day of it’s lunch. I loaded on my Virtual Box and It did not surprise me that much! But, I guess that it will get better eventually! I was wondering that What makes Google Chrome that faster then other browser! From very long time, My personal favorite is FireFox but I have experienced that Chrome is quite faster sometimes. I found this video on one of the Chrome Blog and I thought that it is good to share.

  1. What is DNS pre-resolution, and how does it make Google Chrome even faster?
  2. Why is DNS pre-resolution difficult to do?
  3. Explain in more detail how adaptive pre-resolution works
  4. How else is DNS pre-resolution beneficial? Can it help with browser start-up time?
  5. How do we measure and benchmark the benefits of DNS pre-resolution?
  6. What’s next for DNS pre-resolution?

Wow, JavaOS!!!

I’ve often wondered how realistic it was to imagine a JVM without an OS. There have been attempts to create a full-Java OS. I discovered today that there is a project at Sun that takes the virtual approach. Instead of trying to create a full-blown Java OS, the Maxwell Project aims at creating a JVM that can run directly as a guest under a hypervisor without the need for a guest OS. From Olivier’s Blog.
