Google Chrome is laging running on Windows 7 x64

Google Chrome is a web browser released by Google.  Google claims that the Chrome is the fastest browser in the market.  However, this is not my first experience when running Google Chrome on Windows 7 x64 desktop.

When I use Chrome on my Windows 7 x64 desktop, it will so lag and slow.  I continued using FireFox for quite some time and I am happy with the performance on my new Intel I7 machine equipped with 6G RAM.  I use Chrome when I want to use “Incognito Window” of Chrome to access my bank account.  It always lag for each page I visit.  This is not a pleasant experience with Chrome.

After google for the reason why Chrome is so lag for some time, I finally found a solution.  Uncheck “Automatically detect settings” in Internet Options of Microsoft Internet Explorer will boost the browsing speed of Chrome running on Windows 7 x64 platform.  Reason remain unknown why this helps.  No explanation from Google Chrome team so far.

To access Internet Options, you may use Tools | Options of Internet Explorer or double click the icon of Internet Options in Control Panel:

  1. Switch to Connections page
  2. Click “LAN Setting…” button to show “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” dialog
  3. Uncheck “Automatically detect settings”
  4. Click OK button of LocalArea Network (LAN) Setttings dialog
  5. Click OK button of Internet Options dialog


You may then enjoy using Google Chrome to surf Internet in much responsive speed on Windows 7 x64 platform.  A side effect of this is the Internet Explorer 8 also render web pages faster than before.
