I tried downloading a 210MB video file (from google servers) using chrome and curl. While chrome downloaded the file at almost 10 megabytes per second, curl was much slower at about 200 kilobytes per second. Why is that? I copied the curl command directly from chrome itself. How can I make curl as fast as chrome?
