Steps to Speed up Your Google Chrome Browser

Steps to Speed up Your Google Chrome Browser

It can be annoying if you’re trying to get work done and your Google Chrome browser is running slow. It typically is a fast browser and goes to websites quickly, however it is like almost every other browser allowing you to add extensions and other things that can take a part in slowing it down. Try these quick tricks to speed things up.

Browsing history.

If you’re experiencing slowness in your Google Chrome browser try clearing your browsing history and cookies. This is all of the websites you’ve ever visited stored and saved in the history. It doesn’t play a huge part in slowing down Google Chrome, but it can help. In order to do this, go to your Google Chrome history and choose clear browsing data. There are a bunch of different options to choose from, so you can clear it from a selected time frame or you can clear all of your history and start fresh.

Extension clean-up.

Another thing that can slow down your Google Chrome drastically is having too many extensions on your browser. Disable any extensions you’re not using so that your browser will not continue running them in the background. In order to disable an extension, go to the extensions menu and click on the extension, then select disable. This doesn’t delete it, it just hides it for now. When you’re ready to use the extension again, just go back in and re-enable it.

Tried all that?

If all else fails, try uninstalling your Google Chrome browser and starting over. Be sure to download the installation software first, then uninstall the Google Chrome browser, restart your computer, and start fresh.
