It can only help the top ranking page by cutting the time it takes for users to see that page, provided users click through the first result.Majority of the top ranking pages will benefit.
Seems like a good idea to me. Good for the top result, good for users. At least in short term.
Also good for Chrome as users will notice faster page loading on search results (but don't really know why). Could lead to a significant in increase in switch to Chrome.
