new integration realises which functions on Chrome are used most often,
and which aren’t. PGO then gives more leverage to the most common
functions and optimises them, resulting into faster startup of Chrome
and loading of pages. On its blog, Google claims that the implementation
of PGO has made new tab page load times 14.8 percent faster, and page
load times 5.9 percent faster. Furthermore, Google claims that PGO has
resulted in 16.8 percent faster startup time.

optimises the memory location of the code, moving rarely-used functions
away from frequently-used ones in memory. This results in more optimal
use of the CPU instruction cache by avoiding caching of less-used code,
increasing overall performance. There are many other tricks that PGO
uses to make Chrome faster, and they add up to great results,” Google’s
software engineer Sébastien Marchand explains on the blog.Google
has introduced PGO on the latest 64-bit Chrome version 53 on Windows
and 32-bit Chrome version 54 for now. Chrome 54 is already available for
desktop, Android, and even Chromebook users. For desktop users, Chrome
54 brings bug and security fixes apart from performance improvements,
but notably also changes the way browser handles the YouTube embeds on a webpage page.
Chrome 54 on Android will allow users to download webpages, pictures,
music, and videos for offline viewing when users do not have proper
Internet access. Lastly, Chrome OS 54 introduces some bug fixes, security updates, UI tweaks and new features like Quick View.
