Did you know that Chrome has SPDY? SPDY is basically a packet oriented binary protocol used in SSL and TLS. SPDY helps to create a single TCP connection and optimizes your connections to the web. While other browsers also have this, you can view connections and information in your timeline and see SPDY in action by downloading an add-on called SPDY indicator which shows a lightening bolt in your url.
The above graph can be seen at chrome://net-internals/#timeline.
