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:
- Switch to Connections page
- Click “LAN Setting…” button to show “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” dialog
- Uncheck “Automatically detect settings”
- Click OK button of LocalArea Network (LAN) Setttings dialog
- 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.
