Why is My Computer Loading Web Pages so Slowly in Google Chrome?
By Renee | 04/Dec/2023
70% Windows users would use Google Chrome to browse the internet every day. It is fast and reliable, giving out the better results. However, Chrome also has slow page loading issue. Waiting for a website to load is the least productive work. Refreshing doesn't help, neither does restarting your Chrome. Here are some solutions and explanations to fix slow page loading in Google Chrome and make the pages loading faster.
The speed of your Internet connection determines your browser's page-load time to most extent. For better user experience, Web designers build sites with speed in mind. We all love Wi-Fi network—it is cableless and thus free to walk around the area. However, connecting via a Wi-Fi network can be up to 30% slower than connecting via Ethernet cable. When several families at home or colleagues in the office share a wireless connection, there may not be enough bandwidth to go around.
Solution: When there is limited network speed, use a cable connection!
A PC running low on memory or processor power will slow down during web page loads, especially if you have to game online, many other applications running or browser tabs open.
Solution: open Neptune SystemCare Ultimate, find System Monitor and disable the suggested unnecessary programs and services, and kick the speedup ball while you happen to see it.
Chrome offers a bunch of extra extensions, add-ons, and plugins to help you have better browsing experience, but all of which can impede page-load times and otherwise slow down your browser.
Solution: follow the list and check.
1. Download and install Chrome Cleanup tool to scan and remove the malware and spyware causing a problem with Chrome browser.
2. Clear Browsing History. By pressing Shift+Ctrl+Del on the keyboard, and the settings Windows pop, click OK.
3. Disable Plug-ins and Extensions. To check if the plug-ins or extensions affects Chrome speed, you can open incognito to see if the web page loads faster. To disable them, type chrome://plugins/ and chrome://extensions/ in the URL.
4. Disable Hardware Acceleration. Go to settings, click Show advanced settings… and then find System section. Uncheck Use hardware acceleration when available.
5. Update to the latest version.
If it loads slowly on one webpage or the related sites, the problem may be with the site's own servers. If the site's host doesn't have enough RAM or the servers are overloaded, the site bogs down.
Solution: check several unrelated websites to determine whether the slow loading occurs on all sites or just a few.
