Speed up Chrome with HTTP Pipelining

In the later versions of Google Chrome HTTP Pipelining which was available in Firefox and Opera for a long time was finally made available.  HTTP Pipelining allows the Chrome browser to open multiple threads to call and load web page resources at the same time in parallel instead of sequentially which can speed up website load times when visiting websites online.

 

Update:  This article is pretty much useless at this time as Chrome has removed the HTTP Pipelining from the flags options.  This article is for reference only in older versions of Chrome.

This change can be made separately or with the GPU Rendering change for additional web page load times, but HTTP Pipelining does not require a graphics card and really can be done if you have a decent broadband connection and network speed.

Enable Chrome HTTP Pipelining

  • All you have to do is type in chrome://flags

  • Then look for this setting:

  • Click to enable it

Then restart your Chrome browser.

You should in theory start seeing pages load faster since elements can load in parallel instead of sequentially.  This is an often used trick to improve Mozilla Firefox performance and is known to work.

Have you enabled HTTP Pipelining for Google Chrome yet, do you notice any performance improvement in web site load times?
