Start using a faster web browser. Over the years, tech gurus have studied different browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, etc. and discovered that each browser has its own pros and cons. For someone who is not satisfied with their internet browsing speed, using a fast browser may prove to be a solution to their problem. While Google Chrome was considered to be the fastest browser a few years back, Internet Explorer 9 has managed to beat it and is therefore strongly recommended for a faster internet browsing experience.
Disable flash from your web browser settings to make websites load faster. Flash is heavy and therefore takes a fair amount of time to load, which was why it was rarely found on websites a decade ago. Since the arrival of broadband internet, however, web developers have gained more confidence in integrating Flash content on their websites. As a result, the loading time for webpages has increased significantly. If you are not interested in viewing Flash content and would rather have the website load faster without it, then access the browser settings and disable Shockwave Flash Object from there.
If you have installed any toolbar on your web browser, remove it. They may look fancy and all, but they can put a lot of strain on your browser and consequently take a toll on its performance. Remove the toolbars by using “Add/Remove Programs” from the Control Panel.
Install an anti-virus programme on your computer, update it for the latest virus definitions and then run a full-system scan to remove malicious software, if any, from your computer. Viruses, adware and malware can rob you of your bandwidth, which can result in poor internet speed. Therefore, you must react as soon as you suspect their presence on your system.
