Hi @carlasss
In today's world all the web browser are nearly the same. But the type of plugin and its management makes the browser heavy.

If you are a chrome user.

Then navigate chrome://settings/content

in Plugins select Let me choose when to run plugin.



Further remove all unwanted extensions.

I hope this will solve your problem.

Hi @carlasss how are you doing?
One of the best and high performance browser that I use since I had my Pentium III PC is Mozilla Firefox. It uses a little amount in your memory unlike chrome that utilizes most of it. Firefox relies on a robust extension system to allow users to modify the browser according to their requirements instead of providing all features in the standard distribution. That is one of the more features that firefox can offer you. Cheers mate!

If there's one thing I can't stand, it's a slow computer. When you need to wait 30 seconds for your browser to open... Then it's time to take action.
Slow computers aren't generally used for gaming or intensive rendering work. Most of the time, they are simply used to browse the web, which is a non-intensive task. Nonetheless, most people use browsers which take up a lot of resources and slow down their overall internet experience.
I have a netbook which was starting to run extremely slow, even when doing something as simple as checking my emails. I tried several browsers to try and get a better, more responsive experience, and this is what seemed best:

Hi @carlasss

Opera is best browser, if we don't calculate on TOR BROWSER - TOR is browser from TOR PROJECT, for some underground internet protocols, invisible for GOOGLE, with this browser you can find some dark side of web called DEEP WEB of UNDERNET

DEEP WEB have about 500 x more data than WWW (World Wide Web) - DEEP WEB have about
7.500 TB data, and WWW have only amount 19 TB data. WARNING - this is data from 2012 year, now its more.
TOR also can protect you, change your IP address, etc etc


Opera have a lot of options, you can delete your history from start of using opera, delete cookies all or some by your choices,
For example you always can start with tabs last time opened (option I used - I close Opera and when I open Opera next time I have
all tabs opened when stop last time, all addresses, on tabs...)
etc, etc, you will see that is best browser, faster than firefox, its sure. But can't do things what TOR can do.

I like Google Chrome the best and I use IXQuick.com for my browser search engine .. because it uses Google results but does not give away your location and allows you to erase all the history daily.... It is fast and does not weigh you down unless you add a lot of browser add-ons

Dipto1594 days ago

@carlasss I believe Mozilla Firefox might be of your service. Because Chromium browsers like Google Chrome and Opera are installed by downloading files from internet which means they use more memory. But Mozilla Firefox has only one setup file to install the whole package. So try that. Good Luck.

HI,

Have a question. Sorry did not real all the posts here, however, if you have a lot of programs running in the background it will use up a lot of resources. This itself will slow down your system tremendously.

Here is two suggestions u can try.. IF u have not as of yet been informed about these options -

1)Open control panel, SERVICES - whatever is not necessary to be running ie: Access Remote Desktop Services/Configuration- Bluetooth - TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper.. etc.. (need to know what to disable OR put on manual ). These are services that are running. Personally I config my services which made my system run much better. Less running makes for faster better networking.

2) You can always check into your Task Manager under Processes and see all what is running. If there is programs that are running in the background that is not necessary you can shut them off. Does not mean they are no longer doing their job - just they are running for no reason.

3) I myself removed IE from my system and I do use for a browser mainly Firefox and Google Chrome. There is several good browsers to use. A good site to go to is MajorGeeks.

4) If you wish look in control panel, Programs , and see if there is possibly any downloads for the same program twice installed, AND, if there is software that you no long use. Defrag is a good idea weekly to do.

Perhaps you need to purchase just some Memory - (if you have extra slot(s) to add) Also what can correct a lot of issues at times is doing
a complete reinstall.

Chome Chrome is a good program if you do on setup Advance Settings. (which should be done this way always anyways on all installs, downloads) I just noticed above (MickelMalik) indicate that Chrome to avoid. Really to each their own i think. AGAIN, if the setup is done correctly this program (G Chrome) runs very well with NO issues.

Firefox if PC NEVER INTERNET EXPLORE!!!! Safari if Mac you can upgrade your computers speed if you know Command Prompt(CP) in DOS that is going deep into your computers registry. Not recommend if you don't know what you are doing, have someone who knows (CP) do it, Or buy a new computer.
