Google Chrome - Internet at Lightning Speed

Of all the Google Chrome videos made by its developers, the Potato gun, lightning, and sonic magic speed tests video is easily the best. These speed tests not only confirm what all the technogeeks have been saying all along, they also provide light entertainment for its unusual yet stunning methods to measure the internet browser's speed.

Google attests that the speed tests were filmed at actual web page rendering times. I don't personally buy these claims but luckily Google provides relevant information at this video’s YouTube page. There are also independent tests that confirm this.

Google Chrome was first released on September 2, 2008 as a beta version for Microsoft Windows. Active development is responsible for browsers frequent version updates, with recent versions having significant speed improvement than previous versions.
