    Anyone else using Firefox Nightly or Chrome Canary Dev build web browsers ?

    I've been using Firefox Nightly before Firefox 44 was released to test Brotli content encoding compression support over HTTPS SSL only. But just downloaded Chrome Canary browser and wow it's fast. Centminmod.com site and forum's DOM Content Load time for me on average was around 71% faster compared to Chrome 48 and Opera 34 ! :eek::D:cool:

    KeyCDN has a Brotli compression checker tool at Brotli Test | Brotli compression check :)

    Enabling Brotli on Chrome Canary Browser

    Firefox 44 and Firefox nightly already have Brotli support enabled. For Chrome Canary you need to enable it via chrome://flags#enable-brotli


    Chrome Canary with brotli content-encoding enabled for https version of centminmod.com site. Content encoding = br = brotli :D
