Indeed most you use Google Chrome as your browser as it is fastest, but it sometimes it becomes slow and snappy. To improve your browsing experience, try these steps to increase the speed of Google Chrome.

However, note that the following tips even work for both Mac and Windows (and some even work for Linux!). Good luck speeding up your browser.

UPDATE CHROME

If your Chrome’s burger menu changes from green to yellow, it indicates that the browser you are running is out-of-date. You can check the update by typing chrome://help on the address bar and follow any prompts, notes ZDNet.

DISABLE UNWANTED EXTENSIONS

You can simply go the chrome://extensions and disable any unwanted extension or just uncheck the box or click on the trash icon to delete it.

DISABLE UNWANTED PLUGINS

Go to chrome://plugins and click on the link which you wish to disable the unwanted plugins.

INSTALL THE DATA SAVER EXTENSION

Users who don’t have internet connection rather than a sluggish browser, install the Google Data Saver extension. This extension would help improve your bandwidth connection. The Google servers compress and optimize web pages before being delivered to your browser.

SMOOTHER SCROLLING

Go to chrome://flags and find Enable fast tab/windows close. With this option, it boosts the speed of Chrome and allows it to close windows separate to any JavaScript code, which might be running in the background. Later, you can find a RELAUNCH NOW button at the bottom of the screen click on it to apply the setting. However, users need to note that this is an experimental feature so read warnings at the top of the settings page.

TAB DISCARDING

Go to chrome://flags and find Enable tab discarding. With this option, tabs in the background get discarded as the memory is getting low. This helps to enhance the speed of Chrome. To apply settings users need to click on the RELAUNCH NOW button at the bottom of the screen. It is worth noting that this is an experimental feature so read warnings at the top of the settings page.

CLEAR THE CACHE

Usually, Chrome gets slow if there’s a low disk space. Users can clear the cache memory to speed up.

For that go to chrome://settings/clearBrowserData and select the Cached images and files option. However, you can delete everything to start with a clean slate. Clearing items from the beginning of time is recommended for best results.

CHECK FOR SPYWARE AND OTHER JUNK

Google’s Software Removal Tool can be used by Windows users, which scans the system using something like Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware. While Mac users can also use the Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware for Mac to get rid of the malware.
