As of Chrome 64, Chrome for Windows is compiled with Clang. We now use Clang to build Chrome for all platforms it runs on: macOS, iOS, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and Windows. Windows is the platform with the second most Chrome users after Android according to statcounter, which made this switch particularly exciting.

RE[2]: slow decline of GCC ?

This is Chrome for Windows, it was built using MSVCC not gcc.

clang had a bit of an edge over gcc in compile speed a few years back. But I think they compile speed differential is not that significant anymore when it comes to recent llvm vs gcc toolchains.
