In a way, your web browser has become as important as your PC’s operating system (if not more important). Nearly everything you do, from email to social media-even document editing-happens in your browser. Thanks to Google Stadia and other services, you can even stream games right from a browser window. So if Chrome is feeling a little sluggish, that can hamper the whole experience. Here are a few things you can do to speed it up.
The Internet Speed matters
Before you blame Chrome for your slowdowns, make sure your internet connection is up to snuff. Run a speed test like “SpeedTest” to see how your connection measures up. It’s possible you’re just experiencing a slowdown in your area, or you’re on a crappy public network. (Or maybe you just need to pay for faster internet.)
