Tips to BOOST up Google Chrome web browser.
Tweak 1- Deleting Cached Google Chrome Browser’s Data.
The is the first thing you have do with your Google Chrome browser. Nine out of Ten times, cached browsing data will be the reason for making our browser slower. Here cached browsing data refers to the local data, the browser has stored locally for any future use. Let’s understand in this way, Suppose you visit www.a2zinfomatics.com very frequently 🙂 , your browser will never download the complete data, it picks up the common data (like our logo file) from this cached browser data stored locally. Cached browser data also includes, visits history, website cookies, saved usernames and passwords & all other website data. We hope everything related to the browser’s cached data has been clearer now.
Do this browser cached data effect the speed of the browser ?
The answer for this is a big Yes. This browser’s cache data is increased day by day and occupy a lot of unnecessary space of our hard drive. Later when we visit any website again and again, the browser get confused about which data to take from the web and which one from cached data. Does this make some logic for you ?. One more example, suppose you visit any website daily. Now the browser will always pick the common data from the cached data, if there is a lot of data then it may take time to identify the correct data to pick. We hope, this now has been more clearer to you.
We recommend you to delete your browser’s cached data on the regular basis, the same has been advised by many web experts too. You may also force the browser to don’t store any cached data by using “incognito mode” feature in Google Chrome. Using this incognito mode, you have the option to visit any website Anonymously.

Here we are going to delete some unnecessary temporary files which in return will fasten our system as well as the browser. After completion of this cleanup task, you will sense that the speed of your system plus browser has been increased upto 20% at least. Disk Cleanup is the inbuilt Windows feature. While perform this action, you will have the options to delete Temporary Internet Files, log files, offline web pages etc etc.

Tweak 3- Disabling Google Chrome’s Unwanted Extensions (add-ons)
Nearly each and every Internet browser these days have their extension to enhance the functionality, Google Chrome has these so called extensions too. These extensions are useful most of the times but may put some unnecessary load on the browser. Google Chrome has its own webstore to download the needed ones, some are free to download and some are paid ones. For easy understandings, if someone need to add the functionality of downloading youtube videos in Google Chrome, then there are several extensions available in the extension webstore. You just have to select and add the appropriate one and the feature to download Youtube Videos will be added to the Google Chrome browser. Isn’t these extensions are GREAT!.
The main thing about these extensions is that, they always works in the background. So we never are aware of the load they are putting on to the browser. In simple words, these extensions are the RAM (Randon Access Memory) Eaters to our system and effects our system performance to a large extent.
Steps to remove / disable any unwanted extensions in Google Chrome.
- Open Google Chrome and look for the Option Menu ( 3 horizontal lines at top right corner ) and click it.
- Now hover to the “More Tools” option from the opened menu, here you will see “Extensions” option there, Click it.
- Now disable or remove (if not needed in future) the unwanted extensions by un-checking them. Do it for all the unwanted extensions.
Short / Easy method to delete unwanted Google Chrome Extensions.
Just Type “Chrome:\\Extensions” in the address bar of Google Chrome, and disable / remove the extensions. (as explained above)
Tweak 4- Disabling Google Chrome’s Unwanted Plugins.

These plugins helps the browser to read flash related animations, pdf files, compressed audio / video files etc etc. Basically all the plugins there in Google Chrome are pre installed. Disabling any pre installed plugin may reduce your system functionality. You have to be very careful while disabling any of the plugin. We recommend you to leave all the pre installed plugins as they are. Offcourse Yes, you can disable any of unwanted plugin which you have installed manually.
