Here is a smart list of tricks to make your Google Chrome fast again:

  1. Copy and paste chrome://plugins on Chrome web address bar and hit Enter.

  1. Copy and paste chrome://settings  on Chrome web address and hit Enter.
  2. In the Appearance section have a look at your theme. If you have enabled or downloaded a fancy theme, it might be the cause why your Chrome is so slow. Click the “Default Theme” option to restore Chrome default and light theme.


  1. Copy and paste chrome://flags  on Chrome web address and hit Enter.
  2. Look for Enable fast tab/windows close.
  3. Turn the above option on. This option makes Chrome faster by closing windows separatly to any JavaScript code. By the way, the chrome://flags  opens up a window full of interesting options.
