Basics for Faster Web Browsing

Despite of having a healthful source of Internet, there could be many reasons for you experience slow internet browsing, first we will review for basics !  Here we discuss some useful practices to achieve faster browsing speed. We assume that you  first check for background activity. Sometimes, when your Internet connection seems unusually slow, may happen that  something else is running in the background. Find your browser's download manager and ensure no files are downloading, then check to see what other programs are running, and check each one of them to be sure it isn't hogging your connection.      

To see programs are running in Windows, type Control-Shift-Escape. You will find a list of all active programs to appear.If you want some program not to start from beginning, go to Run ( Or windows default searchbox), and type msconfig, and stop undesired programs from start.  If you are using  Mac, go to the Applications folder, and then the Utilities folder inside that. Open the utility called Activity Monitor for detailed reports on programs, memory usage, and others.

Check for adware.  Adware and spyware are programs that are free to install, but  really tough to uninstall once you've made the mistake of doing so. They can range from mildly irritating to seriously invasive of your privacy, and they can almost invariably hog your bandwidth, slowing down your Internet connection. 

   To destroy adware. Windows users generally rely on a free program called Spybot Search & Destroy; Mac users can use MacScan, but if want to use it for more than a month, have to pay a small licensing fee . You can download the program, install it, and run it to find, catalog, and delete the offending programs from your computer. Once you have the programs, their steps are very straightforward.Also you can use some third party like Revo uninstaller or like this, and with care !

Get rid of viruses. Viruses, worms, and other more directly harmful computer problems are best handled by a powerful antivirus program. So, download an antivirus program and install it, then run it immediately.You can get it even free . Some of the world's best antivirus programs are actually free for home use. Windows users can download Avast! Antivirus or AVG for free; Mac users can download Sophos, a Mac-native antivirus program. All of these programs are clean, legitimate, and widely used.Allow your antivirus program to run continuously in the background. It will catch threats you didn't see coming , sometimes more often than you might suspect.

 Free up some space  from your active drive. Sometimes, an older or smaller computer will begin to slow down due to the sheer amount of temporary Internet data or extra programs and files it's accrued over the years. This generally isn't a problem for any computer made in the last several years, but it never bad to go for little cleaning. Start by deleting your temporary Internet data. This is usually pretty simple; guides for whatever browser you use can be found with a quick Google search. Afterward, go through your programs and remove those you no longer use or want.        Mac users can simply scan through the Applications folder and drag unwanted programs to the Trash. Also make TRASH empty !Windows users should go to the Control Panel and find the Programs panel (also called Add/Remove Programs, or Programs and Features, depending on your edition of Windows), and remove programs from there by highlighting unwanted items and clicking  Uninstall.

Set network security :If you access the Internet via a wireless network, slowdown can occur as a result of a bit much number of  people using your connection to surf the Internet. By setting or changing a network password you can ensure to share your connection with only selected people. 

Also do Hardware Fixes : Clean your computer, if possible. The physical components of your computer can get dusty and clogged over time, leading to overheated parts that under-perform and can eventually cause serious problems. Unplug and remove any batteries from your computer, then carefully open the case and clean it out with cotton swabs and compressed air. Sometimes, the bulk of the problem is just a huge dust bunny on the other side of the fan vent keeping your CPU cool.    Proper maintenance of  PC solve a lot of issues. In some cases your problem is due to a lack of hard drive space or RAM,you can clear more space and add more RAM

Purchase a  new router / wireless router if applicable in your place :Over a period of years, old communications equipment can begin to under-perform simply because the company that provides your Internet service assumes you have newer equipment. The problem can also be exacerbated by mismatched equipment, such as a newer network card  hooked up to a very old wireless router. Fix it by purchasing a new replacement for each piece.There's no need to buy top-of-the-line device for a simple household Internet setup,go for a price that's economical, but a bit above the discount level.May be  your wireless signal is weak, causing a slowdown. In that case, you may need to re-position, tweak, and boost your router with a few tricks. 

Turn Off Bandwidth-Hogging Plugins and Apps

If your hardware seems to be in working order, see if any other programs are hogging the connection. For example, if you're downloading files with BitTorrent, regular web browsing is going to be slower. You should also try installing extensions like AdBlock Plus or FlashBlock, which will block some of the bandwidth-hogging ads, animations, and videos that can use up your connection. They probably won't solve all your issues, but they can at least help make a slow connection feel more usable.

Disable/Remove Extension in Google chrome

The extensions which are programs that you installed from Chrome Web Store that added extra features and functionality to your browser can also cause your chrome to become slow. You can disable your extensions without necessarily uninstalling them so that you can increase the speed of your browser To disable your extensions type this address in your browser chrome://extensions/

Disable Plugins in google chrome

chrome://plugins/ has been removed from Chrome version 57+. You can only manage plugins like Adobe Flash Player through chrome://settings/content/. Any other plugins are untouchable.

Clear most of your toolbars. We advice for minimal toolbars, so If possible, turn most of them off on the browser and remove most buttons, so the content is all there is. Do not have a large number of tabs open. This is a common web-surfing mode of us, but it slows down the browser.
