6 Easy Tips To Speed Up Internet Browsing

In today’s fast paced world, every second counts. Slow internet connection can be frustrating. While there are likely to be several high speed broadband connections available to you, you might still experience a slow internet connection. If this is the case, here are 6 important tips to speed up internet browsing.

1. Install Powerful Internet Security Tools

When you experience a slower internet connection the first thing you should do is check for viruses or malware. This greatly influences the performance of any internet browser. Try to run a complete scan and remove viruses and malware from your system. In addition, installing good firewall software is a good idea to stop or block any suspicious intrusions.

2. Uninstall Unused Browser Add-ons And Tool bars

The internet browser is the tool which brings the entire world onto your screen. To speed up internet browsing, it is important to maintain your browser at its optimal performance level. While browsing the internet, you tend to install certain tool bars and browser add-ons which eat up your system resources. It’s recommended that you remove these unnecessary toolbars and browser add-ons. Remember there is always the possibility to enabling them again when required.

3. Delete Temporary Files And Folders

The recent browsing history is saved in a temporary cache folder, enabling you to access these webpages at a faster pace when required. Increasing the size of the cache memory can speed up internet browsing. For dial up users, the recommended disk space is between 250MB and 1024MB. DSL users can set this number at 250MB. It is always recommended to delete these temporary files on a regular basis.

4. Upgrade Your Browser

Upgrading your browser on a regular basis is essential. Most of the time the browser does this automatically, but it is good to check this out from time to time. In addition, if you feel that the browser is not working at its optimal level, switch to another one. Mozilla Firefox and Chrome work faster than Safari or Internet Explorer. In addition, Mozilla and Chrome offer extensive browser add-ons which can be really useful. For these reasons, choosing the right browser for your browsing requirements is important.

5. Turn Off Multimedia Content

Multimedia content like audio, video and images take a longer time to load. Often, multimedia content is not what you search for. If you are searching for text content, you can turn off multimedia content on webpages and speed up internet browsing. Text pages load faster when compared to videos or images.

6. Block Online Ads With Web Filters

Digital marketing is a great for advertisers looking to promote their products or services. However, these online ads can greatly affect your browser performance. The majority of slow internet issues are attributed to the slow download time of these online ads. While viruses and malware contained in these online ads can damage your system, indecent ads can affect your reputation at a work or public location. AdGuard is a powerful Windows based web filter which efficiently blocks online ads. By preventing counters and tracking programs from ad networks, Adguard allows you to speed up internet browsing. The good thing about this web filter is that it is compatible with all browsers. This add-on can be easily installed and does not require any additional configuration.

    If you’re a customer of Time Warner, Verizon, or most any commercial internet provider, you’ll occasionally end up at an ad-filled page whenever you typo your way to a non-existent page, and how quickly your browser knows where to find its data depends on their heavily-taxed servers. You can do a lot better with OpenDNS, a free service that can speed up your page connections, open pages from keyword shortcuts, serve as a parental filter, and avoid spam-y “no site here” pages. The service provides detailed how-to instructions for both individual computers and routers, so it’s definitely worth at least a try.
