Google releases Chrome speed test video,but it was fake

Quote:
Today Google released a video demonstrated the “lightning speed” of Google Chrome. The video compared the browser to three random scenarios, Chrome Vs. potato gun, Chrome Vs. sound waves and Chrome Vs. lightning.
Each scene was shot with a high speed camera, at 1920 x 1080 and up to 2700fps. Google claims on their YouTube video description that this video was “filmed at actual web page rendering times,” including a “15Mbps Internet connection.“

I wouldn't call it fake per se. Rendering isn't all about internet speed. If this were a download test, then it would be considered fake.

Google explains speed test video, not all shots were live web pages

Neowin previously reported this week about the Google Chrome speed test was misleading, by using a locally loaded webpage. In the video, one scene in particular when the potato shoots across the screen, you can make out that the browser was in fact loading the webpage from the desktop.

Neowin managed to get an official word from a Google PR spokesperson to tell us a little more about how the video was shot. Google did indeed confirm that two parts of the video were shot using a locally loaded webpage, while the other scene, Chrome vs. sound, was filmed loading Pandora.com from the Internet, on a 15Mbps connection.

In the email, Google explains the reasoning behind filming Chrome vs. potato with a locally loaded webpage:
For the Chrome Browser vs. Potato film, we used a version of the web page allrecipes.com that is accessible when logged in. About four hours into the Potato Gun shoot we decided to use a locally loaded version of the web page to enable more precise synchronization with the potato gun. We finally got the shot we were hoping for after 51 takes.
