1. Save CPU time and Internet bandwidth by disabling anti-phishing filter.
Before working on it, make sure you are familiar with the designs of phishing sites and know how to stop them on your own from interfering on your web presences. A little web knowledge will help you disable your Google Chrome’s anti-phishing filter. The action will help you save your CPU time and Internet bandwidth and thereby increasing the speed of your Chrome. The action can be initiated by visiting Wrench Icon  > Options > Under The Hood > Privacy > Uncheck ‘Enable phishing and malware protection’.
2.  Stay away from log files – disable them.
By allowing Google Chrome not to work for your log files, you actually help your browser work fast! In most of the times, these log files are of no use; however, they affect your browser’s speed considerably. Therefore, the best idea is to keep them disabled. By disabling logging files, you prevent your browser from recording your browser activity. Primarily, these log files come into your aid when you crash or face critical unmanageable errors. You may neglect such possibility and move ahead towards disabling them just to free some of your RAM spaces in order to speed up your browser activity.
3. Stop Google Chrome mind usage statistics.
The usage statistics are of no use for you. Google collect the data in order to improve their services. But, it taxes on your speed. You may disable the option without posing any risk to your operation. The option can easily be disabled by unchecking the check box for ‘Send usage data to Google’ available at Wrench Icon  > Options > Under The Hood > Privacy > Uncheck ‘Automatically send usage statistics and crash report to Google’.
4. Select and activate Disable-images.
This is especially advisable and fruitful if you are using a slow Internet connection, such as a Dial Up or GPRS one. By disabling images, you ask your browser to present your desired web pages without actually displaying images associated. Certainly, it will help you gain some speed on your Chrome. Remember, your browser will then become a text only browser. So it is advisable only if you know what you doing.
5. Clean navigational data at interval.
Navigational data stored in cache helps browsers deliver frequently visited web pages fast. But, a big cache or very old data stored there virtually slows your browser’s working efficiency. Therefore, it is advisable you should clean your cache regularly in order to remove old navigational data. The effort that can be activated by exploring the “Remove navigation data” option available at the Options > Under the hood > Privacy menu may helps Google Chrome gain a little added speed.
6. Say ‘No’ to metrics-system and metrics-reporting.
Google uses metrics-system and metrics-reporting to evaluate usage statistics and thereby effecting their web offerings. These two tools have no direct impact on your web-benefit. By allowing them work at background, you actually authorize Google Chrome to work slow. It is a better idea to dissociate them from working with you.
7. Uncheck DNS Preload.
You really don’t need to keep DNS info stored into the cache of your Chrome. Storing such info may affect negatively in achieving optimum speed by your browser. If you are not using old-fashioned dial up connection or accessing Internet through your mobile phone, you must disable Google Chrome’s “Use DNS preload ….” option available under the “Advanced” tab of Tools menu.
Update -
In Newer version of Google chrome this option is replaced by 2 new option in Under the Hood > Privacy -
a. Use a web service to help resolve navigational erros.
b. Use a prediction service to help complete searches and Url’s typed in Address bar.
While later one is similar to DNS preloading but it reduces the speed of browsing by a great mean if you are using a slow browser.
8. Remove plugins option.
Plugins play an important role in deciding true speed of a browser. In order to ensure a better speed of your Chrome, you must disable plugins. Even though such selection may prevent you from enjoying many media sites and playing Flash player and other media players appropriately, the practice is a good one when negotiating speed for your Chrome browser.
9. Disable Java.
Until and unless you extremely love to play on Java applets, it is recommended you should keep Java disabled. Nowadays Java is not being used actively on web; but if you allow it to stay enabled, your browser has to function slowly. Barring a few exceptional cases of playing games, disabling Java does not affect safety of your browser. “C: Documents and Settings %username% Local Settings Application Data GoogleChrome.exe” and “C:UsersAppData Local GoogleChrome Application chrome.exe -disable-java” are the two useful links by which you can disable Java for Windows XP and Windows Vista respectively.
10. Remove dev-tools.
If you are not an expert web developer, you don’t need the Google Chrome dev-tools. And, in such case, it will be a wise decision to disable these dev tools. Finding no dev-tools hindering its performances, your Google Chrome will surely gain momentum in offering an increased speed.

  1. how do i post or can i post something on google i want to post a pic

  2. Google has started displaying a location under the search bar to the left. There’s an option to change the location, or to let Google auto-detect, but I don’t want a location displayed at all. How do I stop Google from showing what it thinks is my location under the search bar on the left?

  3. This is getting pretty annoying… I built a new, pretty much state-of-the-art computer 2-3 months ago from scratch for around $2000. Everything was running tip-top back then. Now all of a sudden, my internet has slowed down drastically, to the point where webpages take around 10 seconds to load, and youtube videos are always stuttering. For the amount I dished out for this computer, I think it’s very lame that it slowed down so quickly. I haven’t done anything bad on it, I don’t watch porn, I don’t torrent anything, I use my shitty laptop for all the other stuff. This computer handles games fine, but the internet is so damned slow!

    I’m using Google Chrome, and I tried clearing my cache, my temporary internet files, I use AVG Free 2011, and there are no viruses on this computer, and there is no reason for there to be viruses anyway. I really need this computer back up to par, these things might seem like slight nuisances to most people, but to me this is a big deal considering the price I paid. Thanks for any help!

    PS-No, I am NOT going to purchase any sort of web accelerator. I just need a free way to maintenance my computer to get it back to it’s old running speed.
    The PC itself is very quick. It’s just the internet, with any browser.

    I’ll try updating flash to see if it helps.
    I’m using a wired connection.
