  • How to Make Google Chrome Faster


    Google Chrome is the official Google browser that allows Google users to manage their Google services, Gmail, and latest search history by signing into their Google account. While Google is ideal for Google users, even those who do not use Google services can still take advantage of the speed, efficiency, and organization that Google Chrome provides.

    How to Make Google Chrome Faster

    While Google Chrome is already extremely fast, some users may experience some difficulty accessing websites as quickly as they would like. This is usually because the user is running many different applications at the same time and using high amounts of CPU memory, causing Google Chrome and all other applications to slow down significantly. In order to make Google Chrome faster, users can implement the following methods:

    Minimize Plug-ins and Add-ons

    Though the user may not be running many other applications, Google Chrome itself has many different plug-ins and add-ons that he/she may have enabled that are slowing down Google Chrome. Fortunately, users can manage their plug-ins and add-ons by launching Google Chrome, clicking the Wrench icon, opening the Tools menu, and selecting Extensions. From there, the user can either temporarily disable or uninstall any add-on or plug-in by selecting the appropriate option.

    Limit Number of Tabs

    Like plug-ins and add-ons, tabbed webpages can also slow down Google Chrome. While tabs allow users to view multiple webpages simultaneously and use less CPU memory than running multiple browser sessions at the same time, they are often unnecessary and slow down the browser. Because of this, users should try to keep no more than 3-4 tabs open at any given time.

    Limit Toolbar and Bookmark Use

    Like plug-ins, add-ons, and tabs, toolbars and bookmarks can also prevent Google Chrome from reaching its full potential by forcing it to manage more content. While users can still enjoy multiple toolbars and a vast collection of bookmarks, users should remove any content that they are not using on a regular basis if they wish to make Google Chrome faster.

      Plugins & Tabs i get…
      Bookmarks i don’t…
      So basically i should clear the bookmarks that i gathered over the years ?
      That sux… I have hundreds, but if  that’s the reason why chrome is so slow, sluggish and unresponsive all the time, maybe it’s time for me to look for another browser 🙁

        i keep all my thousands of bookmarks on firefox , i never uyse firefox, its just my bookmarks library. and i use a skeleton chrome browser with no add ons bookmarks or bloating.
        open both browsers and drag and drop the link from the firefox as and when youn want. As chrome is kept light,, the speed is dynamic.

          Tsk tsk, jamers. Why would you need another browser just to keep the bookmarks?!?! If you have to do cut-and-paste, you could have easily do that to some text file and search it that way. That’s one of the silliest things I’ve ever heard.

        Firefox has similar performance issue when the number of bookmarks increases. But yes, I completely agree with you about bookmarks. I keep bookmarks because I need them more permanently, rather than for temporary use. And now, all these browser vendors are telling me I shouldn’t keep bookmarks!?!?!? WTF. What’s the point of keeping the bookmarks??!?!?!

        The bookmarks are just static links that shouldn’t be touched when it’s not loaded. Why should the browser “manage the contents” of the bookmarks? I simply don’t get it (even though I’m in software dev myself). That’s total BS.

        Maybe I’ll go back to IE. It uses to be that chrome is faster when it’s first installed; but it gets to be so slow and sluggish that it takes more than 5 secs to load a simple page, it’s totally ridiculous.

          Maybe browsers need to play with the bookmarks to auto load them when you type in the address/search bar.

      Chrome is fast enough. I don’t like installing plug-ins or add-ons. That’s why I don’t keep using firefox, too many addons but lack of build-ins features. Hope chrome will add more build-in features just as Avant browser does.
