Google ChromeThanks to a new algorithm, Google is able to push out Chrome updates in one tenth of the size they used to.

This means that Chrome updates can be pushed out to more simultaneously, protecting users against threats faster than before.

An example has been given on the recent update from 190.1->190.4 on the development channel.

  • Full update: 10,385,920 bytes
  • bsdiff update: 704,512 bytes
  • Courgette update: 78,848 bytes

More details on the new Courgette algorithm can be found on the Chromium Blog.
