    Try upgrading your hardware. Chrome has the unique advantage running each tab as a separate pprocess. Thus a 2 or 4 core system, capable of running two threads per core can really hammer Chrome's multitab feature.

    Chrome isn't 64 bit yet on Windows, but it should eventually see a beta release within the next year (both Java and Flash now have x64 variants, opening the door to x64 browsers of all kinds).

    If you upgrade, try going for as many cores as possible and at least 8GB of RAM. For browsing purposes, I suggest Core i3 for its relative value-to-performance, but AMD has some interesting value oriented CPUs that offer good multithreaded performance as well.

    It provides a miniature visual view (called a thumbnail) of all your open tabs.

    Topwin prio automatically gives higher priority to the active process when focused.

    Make sure you remove any extensions that you no longer use and clear your browser cache every few days. Keep your system clean from junk & temp files (see our list of maintenance utilities.

    Chrome has a feature called 'prerendering' which you may enable by going to Tools -> Options -> 'Under The Bonnet' -> In the Privacy section, enable 'Predict network actions to improve page load performance.

    If this doesn't help, determine whether the pages are slow because of chrome, your system or simply because you don't have enough bandwidth (ISP issue). Applications may respond slowly because they are unable to allocate enough memory, see how much memory is available. You may consider requesting more bandwidth from your ISP as well.

    I suggest that you use a dedicated DNS server, such as Google DNS or OpenDNS. A DNS (Domain Name System) is responcible for translating the domain name ( into an IP Address ( By using a faster, more reliable DNS you can speed up this process.
