Chinese word segmentation plays an irreplaceable role in the process of dealing with Chinese natural language. Chinese word segmentation is the foundation of the steps in the content analysis of the webpage, because Chinese webpage information is included in the area of natural language. Besides, speed and performance are required in Chinese webpage analysis. In this paper, we will choose a method with high speed as well as high accuracy through analyzing the characteristic and performance of the existing methods.
