When it comes to browser capabilities, you have no idea how much possibilities you have to speed up your browser and connecting speed as well. In order to maximally speed up your browsing experience you’ll need to apply tips discussed below. It’s very easy to implement tips in order to finely adjust these settings. Configuring your internet settings to achieve faster speeds In order to maximally speed up process of downloading web pages and services onto your computer, you’ll need to turn off QoS service.

The QoS is limiting your Internet speed to some degree since it’s serving as a support for some applications. If you want to know more about this, see here. Anyways, most applications aren’t even requesting the support provided by the QoS service. Luckily, you are allowed to correct that and best of it, it’s applicable to all latest versions of Windows OS and all browsers including Firefox, Chrome and IE. You can speed up your download speed by clicking on Start button and using Run command opening “gpedit.msc”. You’ll notice a new window pop out. In there navigate to Local Computer Policy, then go to Administrative Templates. Now click on Network and select QOS Packet Scheduler. In the right window double-click the limit reservable bandwidth setting. Now you’ll need to enable the setting by checking it. Navigate to Bandwidth limit % and type there 0 (zero). Click OK and close the window and – you are done.

Now this was easy, wasn’t it?


Another trick is only applicable to Mozilla Firefox browsers and it works on Linux OS too. Open the Firefox and in the address location bar (where is usually typed URL address, ie: type “about:config”. Press ENTER on your keyboard and you’ll be led to configuration page. Now in search look for “network.http.pipelining” and “network.http.proxy.pipelining”. You should turn on both settings by clicking on each of this right click and selecting Toggle. Toggling these settings you’ll let Firefox use more than one request which is going to result in noticeably faster web surfing. Also find “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” and change the number of requests to 10 by clicking double-clicks on the setting and typing in number 10.

Increasing browser speed


Now this is something Google Chrome users are going to love. In order to speed up Chrome you’ll need to type about: flags into the address bar. You’ll be able to enable and disable settings. I’d recommend enabling Override software rendering list, GPU compositing, GPU-Accelerated SVG and CSS Filters and HTTP Pipelining. To enable these settings you’ll see below each setting Enable or Disable button, depending if is disabled or enabled already. Internet Explorer is another popular browser but unfortunately, you can’t tweak it. But what you can do to speed up IE and other browsers including Firefox, Safari and Chrome is to delete all history and cache data. Every time you start up a browser, cache data will be located as well. That’s a lot of resources consumed. In order to speed up any browser on any platform you’ll need to download CCleaner for Windows or Mac and BleachBit for Linux. Delete all history data, cookies, cache and saved files. It will take a while but wait for it. Now run your favorite browser and disable and remove unneeded plugins and extensions. Delete superfluous bookmarks as well. If your Internet speed is really slow or you are in need of more RAM memory, you may want to use plugins or extensions for your browser. You can do that by searching online for search terms like “speed up + your browser + extension/plugin”. You’ll get a lot of possibilities to get the most out of your browser software.
