Google chrome takes a long time to open – Quick fix to make it fast again

Is your chrome slow even after reinstalling it?

Google chrome become slow running a lot of processes, tabs, and extensions at the same time, Chrome may get slow down and it can also cause in slow down your computer.

If you’re sure it’s a Chrome problem, not of the whole computer (or just want to optimize your browser ), check out the some quick tips below to use Chrome to its full potential:

1. Clean the extensions

Typically, one of the main causes of slow browser is having too many extensions installed. As we explained above, the browser runs a number of processes on the system, including third-party plugins.

Therefore, the recommendation is to completely remove any extensions that you do not use.

To manage your extensions, click the Chrome menu in the upper right corner (represented by three vertical dots), More tools> Extensions.

Uninstall the plugins you don’t need anymore by clicking on the trash next to their name.

2. Disable Hardware Acceleration

Sometimes, it may also be an option to disable hardware acceleration, which may be bringing some conflicts to the browser.

To do this, go to the Chrome menu, click  Settings> Advanced (at the bottom of the page)> System and uncheck the “Use hardware acceleration when available” option.


3. Use the default Chrome theme

Maybe the theme you’re using in Chrome is too heavy for your browser or your hardware (it’s difficult, but it happens). To return to the default theme, go to Settings and click  Restore default under Appearance.

4. Use the Cleaning Tool

  1. This is a fantastic article. I pretty much liked it. I have an issue with my “History”. If I need to check the browsing history, I get the “Loading…” and it doesn’t load at all. Even if I refresh the page nothing happens. I can’t view my history. Any solution to this? I’d really appreciate.
