Clockwise and Counter Clockwise rolling circles in Chrome tabs

When using Google Chrome on of my friend told that the a circle which appears before the page is fully loaded rotates in both directions and also the colour also changes. After  that what I found was

It appears as if the circle is rolling counter-clockwise when the browser is in the following states:

  • Resolving hostname
  • Connecting to server
  • Waiting for response (before first byte being sent from server?)

Whereas the circle appears to be rolling clockwise when the browser is in the following states:

  • Loading the page or referenced resources

When the site is being resolved, Chrome will display this gray line, revolving slowly, counter-clockwise.

When the site is found and is being loaded, Chrome will show this blue line, revolving quickly, clockwise.
