chromeSome months ago I wrote an interesting article talking about how to make Google Chrome faster thanks to its DNS pre-fetching feature. Such an option really improves your surfing experience by caching (saving) the IP address of the websites you visited. This simple trick improves the page load performance thus decreasing the time Google Chrome takes to display a website. The downside of this feature is that if a website changes location, if it changes its IP etc, Google Chrome won’t be able to display it right away and it the worst case it won’t be able to download it at all! So, let’s see how to turn off the DNS feature and clean Google Chrome DNS cache in case you don’t manage to display a website on your Google browser!

  1. Open Google Chrome.
  2. On the right side, click the spanner icon to gain access to its settings.
  3. Click Options.
  4. Click the Under the Hood tab.
  5. Now, simply untick Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance checkbox.
  6. Click the Close button and turn off Google Chrome.
  7. Turn Google Chrome on.
  8. Now, let’s clear the cache and prevent Google Chrome from wrongly fetch old data related to websites.
  9. Again, Click the spanner icon.
  10. Click Options.
  11. Click the Under the Hood tab.
  12. Hit the Clear browsing data button under Privacy (first item).
  13. From the menu, tick Clear Browsing History, Empty the Cache, Delete Cookies and other site data.
  14. Click Clear Browsing data button.
  15. Done!
