Google Chrome supports GPU hardware acceleration, which means it doesn’t need to rely solely on the CPU to render web pages. This should be a good thing, and it should speed things up. In many cases it is, but hardware acceleration in Chrome can also cause problems including keyboard and mouse lag, slow performance, scrolling glitches and tabs not loading.
How to turn off hardware acceleration in Chrome:
- Go to settings
- At the bottom click “show advanced settings…”
- Under System headline uncheck box with hardware acceleration
- You must restart your browser. Sometimes is better to restart your computer.

Chrome extensions are small programs that add new features to your browser and personalize your browsing experience. But they can also cause problems with chrome speed.

- Either uncheck the box to disable the extension or click on the trash can icon to delete it.

3. Disable not used plugins
Some of the plugins installed in your browser can cause slow performance. Check it and disable some of them you don’t need.
How to disable plugins in Chrome:
- Type “about:plugins” or “chrome://plugins/” in the address bar
- You will see a list of installed plugins. Click the Disable link for every plugin you don’t need.
4. Clear browsing history

How to clear history in Chrome:
