How to Speed Up Chrome on Android in Just a Few Steps
Google Chrome is already one of the fastest browsers out there, but it can still be faster if you know how to tweak the settings just right. One way to speed up your browser on Android is by tweaking your settings so that the device only downloads and renders part of the page at once, instead of the whole thing, which can take a lot longer to load depending on how much content it has. Here’s how to do it.
Go to Settings
Open the Settings app on your Android device. Scroll down and tap About phone. Tap Software information. Tap Build number seven times. You should see a message that says You are now a developer! Back out of this menu and enter the newly accessible Developer options menu. Scroll down and find the Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale options. These three settings allow you to adjust how fast animations will run on your Android device. Change them all from .5x (half-speed) to 1x (normal speed). Now close the Developer Options menu by tapping the back arrow at the top left corner of the screen and reboot your device.
This hack can be reversed by changing these same three values back to .
Chrome is one of the most popular browsers out there, but it can be a bit of a resource hog. If you’re looking for ways to speed up your browsing experience, here are a few tips. The first thing you should do is set Opera as your default browser. To do this, tap Advanced and then choose Opera from the list of app options. Next, tap Settings and uncheck Use smooth scrolling.
Smooth scrolling doesn’t work as well on mobile devices because they don’t have as much processing power as desktop computers. Instead, try turning off all animations by tapping Enable Hardware Acceleration. Finally, you can reduce loading time by using data compression by tapping Data Saver.
