07 Sep 11 ways to speed up Google Chrome

One of the most popular web browsers users love is Google Chrome, yet in spite of all the feature updates and bug-fixes, Chrome can be slow at times because of some of its features, extensions or applications. The good news is that there are various tips and tricks, and hacks that help to improve the overall speed and sensitivity of this browser, which subsequently can improve its page loading and web browsing speeds. In this post we will be looking at 11 ways to speed up Google Chrome.

Get rid of what you don’t need: These tips and tricks disable various unnecessary and unneeded features of Chrome to allow the browser to load web pages faster. These include extensions, plugins and web apps you don’t need.

  1. Disable avoidable extensions: Extensions are tools that extend the functionality of the Chrome browser, which are helpful yet some may actually be less helpful than you think. Extensions mostly run in the background, and parse or filter web pages before they’re displayed on the screen, but will also load their own pack of data from the Internet.To get better browsing speeds and good response times, disable and/or delete extensions you don’t actually need. To disable extensions you do not need:
  • Type “chrome://extensions” in your Chrome’s location bar. Alternatively, you can go to Chrome’s Options > More tools > Extensions.
  • Untick the Enabledto the extensions you want to disable, or click the Trash icon to delete the extension.
