Google Chrome has been the web browser market leader for a couple of years now. Despite Edge and Vivaldi browser launches, Google Chrome continues to command the market share.
Google Chrome is perhaps the fastest web browser out there for Windows operating system. Chrome loads web pages quicker than its competitors, and the browser from Google is getting even better with each update.
Make Google Chrome faster
Like any other web browser out there, Google Chrome also slows down with time. After a few weeks of usage, the browser takes a few seconds to launch, and the overall speed goes down.
If you feel that the Google Chrome browser on your Windows 10 is not as fast as it was on day one, you can reinstall the browser to get that missing speed back again. But reinstalling a browser is not an easy job as it will delete browsing history and other important data unless you backup Chrome passwords and other data.
Use SpeedyFox to make Google Chrome faster on Windows
Windows users who would like to speed up their Chrome browser can use a free tool called SpeedyFox. Of course, the name of the program sounds like a program designed to speed up Firefox, but it is fully compatible with Google Chrome as well. The SpeedyFox program was initially released for Firefox, hence the name.
According to the developer of SpeedyFox, this little program helps you boost Chrome startup time up to 3 times and improves the overall speed of the Chrome browser. In addition to Chrome, you can use SpeedyFox to speed up Firefox, Vivaldi, Skype, Mozilla Thunderbird, and Palemoon programs.
SpeedyFox compacts browser database without deleting any data and optimizes the same to operate faster, according to the developer.
The developer recommends you run this tool once in two or three weeks, depending on your usage.
Using SpeedyFox is fairly easy. Once you install and run SpeedyFox on Windows 10 or earlier version of Windows, it automatically detects your Chrome install and profiles. If you have more than one profile, it lists all profiles created in your browser.
Select the profile which you would like to optimize using SpeedyFox and then click Optimize button. As simple as that!
However, depending on the size of the profile and your PC’s configuration, the tool might take up to an hour to complete the optimization.
While SpeedyFox doesn’t delete your browsing history, passwords or bookmarks, we recommend you create a backup of these days before running SpeedyFox.
