Google plans to implement a new feature in Chrome that will make surfing the internet faster: the Back Forward Cache. The launch will be primarily for version 86 of Chrome for Android, which is expected to hit the Play Store around October.
How the return cache works
This way, when the user advances to a page and returns to the previous one (saved in cache), this switching occurs much more quickly.
To implement the return cache, Google is working under the “slow if ever” philosophy. As already mentioned, the feature will first arrive in Chrome for Android, but then it will be incorporated into the desktop.
Pending the transition, the company is increasing compatibility with pages of different types and adding improvements. Then, bfcache (nickname of the resource in English) will arrive on the desktop platform. The next steps include standardizing the feature, to improve interoperability between browsers like Safari and Firefox.
