How to speed up Chrome with easy tricks
Chrome is the most popular web browser on the web, and one reason for its leadership is the fact that it remains one of the fastest browsers. It might not be getting the speed boost that it needs from outside software, but it’s still a viable browser on its own. For the best browser optimization, there are a lot of things you can do such as changing your search engine and cleaning out your cache regularly. But here are some hacks that might blow your socks off.
Chrome users keep tabs open for easier access – especially with higher resolution screens. It’s not uncommon for a Chrome window to have 10 or more tabs open at a time. Open tabs can take up a lot of system resources. You should either leave them alone or consider enabling Chrome’s “suspend tabs you don’t use” option, then re-starting them when you need to. To enable this, press Ctrl + F, type in “tab discarding”, select the drop-down box, check the “Enabled” option, and restart Chrome.
Save your data usage and speed up Chrome with Google Desktop App. You can reserve or compress web pages as they load. With a Google Chrome Data Saver extension, you can save lots of data by limiting the sites from which you load Flash. There is one for Android and now it has been added to the browser. As these scripts compress web pages and make them smaller, other visitors will find it easier to load. So, whether you’re loading a webpage for the first time, or you’ve already been on this page before, keep your browser open to enjoy an even faster page load.
If you have an add-blocker installed on your website, we recommend taking a look at our engaging and respectful content instead of the blocked one. We’re sure it will be just as enjoyable for your visitors. Though advertisers want to be noticed and seen as the most important elements on any website, this often happens at the cost of your computer resources. Most ads are not colorful or subtle and take up a large portion of your screen. This can make it difficult for you to access other important information you could be reading on your page. There are many different types of ad-blockers that help protect you from remaining vulnerable to ads, such as the classic Adblock Plus and Ghostery. Some of them also provide you with control over which type of ads you want to see on a site.
Hardware acceleration is a method of using the graphics card, which can provide an added boost. Scenery can be rendered faster and the user experience would not stutter. In Chrome, you can use hardware acceleration to improve the graphics performance of your browser. You can enable hardware acceleration by going to your browser’s preferences, then under “Settings,” select “Advanced,” and change the slider next to “Use hardware acceleration when available” to enable it.
Chrome has a built-in task manager that allows you to track the tasks running from all of your open tabs. To access it, click on the menu icon in the top right corner of Chrome, then “More Tools”, then “Task Manager”. Here you will be able to see which tabs and extensions use the most memory. Tabs that consume large numbers of memory will slow down your browser. If your process is using excessive memory or CPU cycles, you can terminate it by clicking the Terminate Process button.
You might not be able to see any benefits from these tricks individually, but if you apply them all together, the speed of your browser will start to improve. You are obviously a person who cares about speed and knows that you should only use trusted extensions. In addition, the browser you’re using isn’t loaded with too many unnecessary tabs. You’ve probably already checked to make sure that you don’t have any potential conflicts, too.
