Google Chrome will be faster on Windows, Linux and macOS thanks to the back / forward cache




Google will enable the default support for the so-called cache back / forward for Windows, Linux and macOS with Google Chrome 92 and therefore it will be faster in some situations. That's what they've discovered since Windows Latest in a Mountain View document.



This type of cache was enabled last year in Google Chrome for Android and, broadly speaking, what it allows is an instantaneous loading of the webs to which we arrive using the back / forward buttons of the browser. Similar techniques of bfcache, with similar results, they are applied in browsers such as Edge, Firefox or Safari.
