Google Chrome Speed Tests pitch browser against lightning

12 May 2010

The Google Chrome Speed Tests video pitches the search firm's latest internet browser against a potato gun, sound waves and even lightning in a series of performance tests.

The video is designed to support Google's claims that their latest Chrome beta 'Incorporates one of Chrome's most significant speed and performance increases to date, with 30% and 35% improvement on the V8 and SunSpider benchmarks over the previous beta channel release.'

In order to prove their point, the boffins at Google put their web browser head-to-head with a potato gun, a sound wave and lightning sent from a giant Tesla coil.

In each of the tests, an object is dropped onto a 'trigger' which simultaneously sets off the browser and the force it is up against. In every case Google's Chrome browser manages to fend off the competition, with the results detailed in super-slow motion replays.

Google are yet to release detailed results of the speed tests, though claim that 'These speed tests were filmed at actual web page rendering times.' and have even released a behind-the-scenes video of the tests.
