      Most of the tipps doesn’t make anything faster, but even worse: Some may slow down the browser like disabling prefetching, or purging the cache…

      I do go with iPhone game development… It is fast but at times it shows error while running script so I use both chrome and firefox.

      I don’t prefer Firefox much as it is very very slow but chrome is lot better interms of speed.

      This article is of great help.

      Cheers,

      One of my favourite tools is CCleaner. CCleaner is an essential tool
      that gets rid of a many many unneeded files on your computer, not just
      all your junk Chrome files.

      Smooth Gestures is nice, but causes a page loading / scrolling lag in chrome.  Also, the gestures render slow, causing errors in the gesture recognition.

      A better alternative is Gestures for Chrome.  It still causes a small lag in the page loading / scrolling time, but much better than Smooth Gestures in overall performance.

      This isn’t true in practice ! Chrome based browser’s are terrible slow ! This page loaded with opera in blink of an eye but with chromium almost 10 seconds regardless of what chromium browser you use – iron ist the worst of them ! One can see how its struggles/fighting with graphic on page ! Using extension to clean pages doesn’t speedup page load and i’m siting on 6MB+ broadband using only win and browser ! No i have not a virus but i have faulty chromium browser. Its getting from bad to worse ! Advertising browsers speed is a big lay ! How do you test it on optics with plain win with no security installed with max speed acceleration optimizations on supercomputer to not loaded google server (lab conditions ???)? Browsers to day are consuming to much memory cosing high i/o on cpu strain it sky high and no intelligent pages handling when you opened more than 10 pages ! When i open 10 pages on google web store to install extensions one can see how browser struggles !!! Rely fast browser will be if coded from ground up in ASSEMBLER optimized to max ! And now my hardware to make the picture complette:
      mobo: MSI NEO PT880 7043 v2.0
      CPU: P4 3GHz HT FSB 800 1MB cashe
      RAM: 1GB
      GPU: nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128 MB Ram
      OS: Win Server 2003 Enterprise (Win XP is to bloated – higher win are just worse oversized to bloated too slow even optimized! On linux with the same browser the same picture !)
      If this configuration is not enough for simple internet browsing then i don’t know the world any more or developers of browsers works in conjuctions with hardware vendors ! No os/hardware is fast enough – buy the latest the new ones – we will get the same result go ahead and buy the latest one ! Your broadband is also not fast enough buy optics 10 to 100 MB+ not fast enough go on MARS ask some alien for help offered tech on earth isn’t fast enough !
      Someone on developers side has lost some mind/compass-ses and its time from users side to raise voice and complain abaut faulty development ! If it’s free that doesn’t mean than can be so SLOW not to mention other things ! For to many bloated web pages that consuming to much resources are to be blacklisted and not shown/indexed on search engines this way the developers of web pages were forced to rethink how to modularize web page and optimize it ! To many unneeded things to many background links than one can not control or want it and so on ! Lately even social web pages are aggressive with links and all over internet ! Too bloated internet demands more powerful servers and more of them more and more speedy broadband but on our/users side everything getting slower and slower ! For what we pay for more broadband but getting slower and slower internet ??? Do not lay any more give some real solution to real problem and not advertise speedy browser that is not speedy at all ! After all who want’s high speed broadband with bloated slow internet and pay for that every month ! Its getting even worse now someone wants to control entire internet putting ip cop on every user on planet ! The developers are more oriented in censorhip as user experience and freedom ! Where we going and where will this madness stop ? We users deserve all the speed for what we pay for its not ISP fault at least for me – i have no censorship/broadband limits on YET !!!

      What about removing and replacing add-ons & extensions with their bookmarklets (such as – Instapaper, Read it Later, Screen Grabs, Evernote and loads more)! Just do a quick search for bookmarklet version/s or suitable alternatives to any ‘bloated’ add-ons.

      Secondly – uninstall (or disable) add-ons that you seldom use. Do you *really* need or use *all* of them – if not, get rid of them.

      Thanks for giving these tips. Personally I’m not impressed by Chrome browser, I accept this is faster but most of the time it doesn’t run the scripts and show the error.
