Update Google Chrome

Every new release of Chrome comes with brand-new features, security updates, and frequently speed enhancements. Therefore, updating to the most recent version might solve your speed issues. It will keep you safer from threats online even if it doesn’t.

When a new version of Chrome becomes available, it automatically upgrades; updates normally take place in the background when you close and reopen the browser. You may see a pending update in the top-right corner of Chrome if you haven’t closed it in a while:

  • Green: Update released less than two days ago
  • Orange: Update released about four days ago
  • Red: Update released at least a week ago

When you click the Update button next to the three-dot More menu, your browser will restart as soon as you provide it permission to do so. (If prompted, choose Not now; updates will be applied the following time you open Chrome if you’d prefer not to restart straight away.)

You can manually trigger an update and determine which version of Chrome you’re using by checking:

  • Launch Chrome
  • the “More” button (three vertical dots)
  • Select Help. Regarding Google Chrome
  • You can determine whether Chrome is current or whether it needs to be updated here. Chrome ought to start downloading the most recent version of the browser automatically and then ask you to activate it again. If your browser is out-of-date, you might also notice a button to update Google Chrome.
  • Choose Relaunch.

Run a malware check

Instead of wasting time through Chrome’s settings, simply scan your computer for malware. Use your preferred program to run an anti-malware scan and check to see if anything suspicious is operating in the background. Specifically: Look for anything shoving extra ads onto the pages you visit or tracking online behavior. Because it uses more resources, this kind of malware might make your browser and machine slower.

Upgrade Chrome’s security

In the past, Google created the Chrome Cleanup Tool, a program that aids in locating and removing unwanted software (UwS), such as toolbars and other automatically installed extensions that antivirus scans could miss, from Windows machines.

Google also claims that even though the service was discontinued earlier this year, users will still be “automatically protected” by Safe Browsing in Chrome and its Enhanced protection features. To switch from Standard protection to Enhanced Protection, go to Settings > Privacy and security > Security. Enhanced Protection provides “faster, proactive protection against dangerous websites, downloads, and extensions, [and] warns you about password breaches.”

Trim the Fat

If you believed it would be simple, we have some bad news for you: In order to browse the web more quickly, sacrifices must be made. While the aforementioned advice might be useful to some, slimming down Chrome is the best thing anyone can do to speed it up. The less extensions and tabs you have, the quicker Chrome will feel because they are the largest resource hogs.

Extensions Use the Task Manager to see which extensions use the most CPU and RAM:

  • open the More menu in Chrome (top right corner, three vertical dots)
  • Choose “More tools”
  • Toggle Task Manager on.
  • Search for items beginning with “Extension”

By tapping the heading at the top until a downward arrow appears, you can sort tasks from highest to lowest in terms of memory footprint or CPU. Check which extensions are taking up the most room on the list and decide if you actually need them.

To uninstall:

  • Click the puzzle-piece symbol in the top right to reveal the Extensions menu.
  • Next to the extension you want to remove, select the three-dot menu. Uninstall out of Chrome
  • To manage extensions, click. select Remove.

You’ll experience an increase in performance as you erase more data. (Not to mention an increase in security, given that extensions might be compromised or sold to adware firms.)

Tabs

 There are two types of people in the world: Those who open just a few tabs at a time, and those who hoard tabs like they’ve never heard of bookmarking. If you fall into the latter category, it’s likely what’s slowing you down.

Depending on how many tabs you typically keep open, the outcome can still be a net speedup.

Clean Up the Slate

If Chrome still won’t comply, it might be necessary to restore the browser to its factory settings. No add-ons, unique search engines, or other saved settings are thus available. Reset settings by selecting Settings > Reset settings > Restore settings to their preset values.

Sure, losing years of effort is painful. The good news is that after a hard reset, Chrome should revert to being its speedy self. (Therefore, maintaining a clean browser is the issue.)
