When your smartphone is brand new, everything works quickly and smoothly. But over time, a few grains of sand seize this beautiful mechanism, so the speed of execution of your phone slows down inexorably. And the situation becomes critical when Chrome begins to be struck by a fit of deep lethargy.
The performance of a smaprtphone is obviously limited by the hardware, but there are a few steps you can take to speed up Android Chrome. Let's take a look at some of the options available to you.
Activate data saver
As you know, there are 2 key factors that come into play in measuring the performance of a browser:
- The hardware
- Data speed
Whatever the performance of your smartphone, the browser cannot be faster than the speed of the data flow. The challenge here is therefore to use less data.
And this is exactly the role of the option " Data saver ". In essence, enabling this feature will notify Google servers that the data sent needs to be compressed and optimized for smartphones. Indeed, it is not necessary to receive images in high definition while you are going to see them on a small screen.
In addition to making your navigation on faster internet, it will also limit data consumption, ideal for those with a small package.
How do I activate the "Data Saver" feature?
- Open Chrome
- Tap the 3 dots icon in the upper right corner of the screen
- Select parameters
- Scroll down and select "Data saver"
- Activate setting
Clear browser cache regularly
The cache file is a good thing. It loads the navigation data and saves it locally on your device. When the page loads, it is much faster for the browser to simply resort to the stored data rather than downloading the data again.
But the problems arise when too much data is stored in the cache file. The file becomes fragmented and the data is corrupted causing the browser to slow down. It is then necessary to'' clear cache file.
How to clear cache in Chrome on Android?
- Go to the phone settings application
- To select " Application managers " or " Applications »
- Select the Chrome app
- Select "Empty the cache", confirm by pressing OK the deletion of data.
- Open Chrome for Android
- Select the 3 dots icon in the upper right corner of the screen
- Select Settings
- Tap Site settings
- Disable cursor
Refresh Chrome regularly
Chrome is constantly being updated, and the development teams aim to improve navigation for its users and root out bugs. So make sure you're always using the latest version of Chrome. This will increase the chances that everything will work optimally.
