According to Google, Brotli reduces the size of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code by up to 25% over the previous version, which was named Zopfli.

Google touts the advantages of the smaller sizes on mobile devices, where users could have a capped data plan.

“At Google, we think that internet users’ time is valuable,” the company wrote in a blog post announcing Brotli. “And that they shouldn’t have to wait long for a web page to load.”

Chrome on Android, which is developed by Google, has around 40% share of the mobile browser market, slightly ahead of Safari on iOS, which has 36%.
