Help! My Chrome Browser is Dragging

Is your Chrome slow?  Mine was.  Every time I typed or tried to click on various elements on the page, the system would take a few seconds to respond.   It was proving to be very frustrating.

I fixed the problem by disabling hardware acceleration and then restarting the computer.

Solution for Slow-Loading Chrome

GO HERE: Settings  > Advanced Settings > System headline

You will find a check box that you need to disable, which reads: “Use hardware acceleration when available.”

Uncheck this box and feel the need for speed. Some screenshots for image-happy people are below.


After you fine the advanced settings button scroll down to the headline that reads “system.” Then uncheck the second box.

    We’re supposed to uncheck hardware acceleration to speed up the browser? Seems funny that you disable it to make the browser respond quicker…
