How can we optimize our web pages to load faster in Chrome? Are there specific coding techniques or Apache config changes required to improve Chrome’s performance? I couldn’t find anything helpful when I searched ‘Chrome performance’. Should I be searching the Forum for a different phrase? Chrome has our slowest WPT load times (except for legacy pre-IE10 browsers).
Here’s just one example:
Chrome: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140414_2D_M5Q/ (5.4s)
IE-11: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140414_0X_M5G/ (4.2s)
Firefox: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140414_P5_M5S/ (4.1s)
Chrome has the largest browser penetration with our visitors so we’d like to do all we can to optimize our web pages to have a better customer experience with Google’s browser.
