Google Chrome bogging down? Try these tips to speed it up

QUESTION: I love Google Chrome, but it seems like it’s bogging down a lot lately. Any suggestions?

ANSWER: No matter which browser you’re using, over time things can bog down especially if you like to have lots of websites open at the same time.

Tabbed browsing

There was a time when you could only have one active session running in a browser and the use of the ‘Back’ button was how you switched to something that you previously opened.

That all changed with the adoption of tabbed browsing back in the early 2000s, which allowed for additional web pages without closing the current one.

This incredibly useful feature has led to what many are calling a ‘tab hoarding problem’ that can lead to numerous issues, including sluggish browser performance.
