This is just a commercial, really, but it’s pretty entertaining. Google advertisers wanted to push their whole “Chrome is fast” angle and so they set up and filmed a series of “tests” where they trigger some fast real-world event and load a page in Chrome at the same moment. Guess which process finishes first every time? Yeah, OK, that was an easy one. It’s hardly “science”–not even the watered-down television kind–but it is, in fact, fairly amusing to watch a potato get blasted through a fry-cutter and into a vat of cooking oil. They also spray paint onto a giant ear model using acoustic waves and zap a tiny pirate ship with a Tesla coil. The making-of video is recommendable, as well, for the bloopers. [Thanks, Alan Dove!]
