Yesterday, as part of its announcement regarding the release of the Google Chrome 5 beta, Google teased a series of "speed tests" it had conducted using high-speed cameras synchronized to show various events alongside Chrome loading a webpage.

Well, Google today announced that it has posted a new video showing the speed tests in action.


The video highlights three speed tests:

- A potato gun shooting a potato through a slicer and into a fryer while Chrome loads AllRecipes.com in the background.
- A keytar connected to a speaker spatters paint using the speaker's vibration while Chrome loads Pandora.com.
- A Tesla coil is used to send current arcing to a model ship while Chrome loads Weather.com.
