Facebook Contributes API to Google Chrome

Facebook recently got together with Google to see how they can contribute to the API of the Google Chrome browser. The main purpose of these two tech industry powerhouses getting together has to do with the fact that Facebook is trying to make things smoother in terms of the user experience, which is more or less in line with the manner in which Facebook approaches such situations all in all. The main focus in this regard was making it so that the amount of time it takes for the browser to respond to a click made by the user, something that will really reduce the amount of time that will be required by any user to figure out a way to get to where they need to go on the internet in general.

The way that the amount of time between a click and the browser reacting will be reduced is by making it so that the JavaScript engine that is responsible for executing commands is made a lot more efficient, thereby allowing it to execute combined code executions. The main problem with this is that most JavaScript engines tend to be single threaded, which would make it quite difficult for anyone to execute multiple commands, but since we have two of the juggernauts of the tech industry working on a solution for this there is a very good chance that a solution is going to be found. It’s exciting to think about how technology is going to progress from here on out.
