One little trick that you can try if you are using Google Chrome, is to tweak some of the settings to gain even greater performance. To get started simply type — “about:flags” — without the quotation marks into the Chrome omnibox and you’ll be presented with a whole range of additional options to tweak the browser performance for even greater loading speeds. To get started I recommend enabling:
- GPU Accelerated Compositing
- GPU Accelerated Canvas 2D [only on PC for now, sorry Mac users]
- Web Page Prerendering
and then hitting the “Restart Now” at the bottom once you’ve enabled the settings you want.
There are a whole lot of other nifty little addons that will speed up your performance but the current release I am using 9.0.597.107 is quite stable when these 3 additions are enabled. When you then visit any of your most favorite websites you’ll notice a substantial increase in your browsing speeds. There is nothing better than moving around the web at lightening speeds on a browser that loads faster, supports the latest technologies and is consistently improved every six weeks. If you don’t use Google Chrome or your Company is still stuck on Internet Explorer — I strongly urge you to update to Google Chrome.
You’ll never look back.
