What to do if the Internet browser is slow to load pages

If there is a problem with the computer that really creates irritation and impotence it is that of a slow browser to load the pages.
Sometimes, for no one knows what reason, the internet goes slower than usual, the pages take longer to open and to show themselves in full.
Unfortunately, there are many reasons why the internet is slow, it may be the fault of the computer, there may be a problem on the momentary line or it is the fault of the browser, which is not well configured.
In this blog we have examined the issue from several points of view, explaining why the internet is slow and how to solve slow connection problems.
in this article we further expand the discussion by going more on the concrete and therefore, taking for granted that the line works, we see what the factors are and they influence the speed of the browsers (Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) and how to make sure that the internet never be slow.
1) Browser maintenance
The web browser is the program that loads and displays the pages of internet sites.
Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer and Safari are the best known and most used in the world and require maintenance.
Since there is a lot of garbage on the internet, the browser, after a certain use, becomes like a dustbin that collects anything, uploading millions of files made of text, images, videos and animations of the websites visited into the computer .
This massive amount of data on where we have been and what we have looked at could slow down navigation over time.
So every now and then it is important to go to the history menu and, as explained in another guide for Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer, empty the cache and delete history and cookies.
If desired, you can also block the saving of the sites visited in the browser history even if personally I do not recommend it, because the history is often useful.
In addition to this, it is also important not to keep too many tabs open together, always update the browser to the latest version and limit the use of active extensions, which take up memory and slow down loads.

2) Remove harmful and heavy extensions
Browser extensions can significantly affect your browsing speed.
It is therefore advisable to open the list of installed extensions and remove those that are not being used.
We have seen how on Chrome you can use the task manager to find out which extensions are heavier.
In addition to this, it is essential that there are no plugins or adware extensions, those that change search engine and start page and that show more advertising on each website.
To check their presence and remove it there is a simple tool to use at least once every month that I will never stop recommending: ADWCleaner.
3) Uninstall the antivirus if heavy
Antivirus is an essential software for every computer that cannot be missing.
However, some antiviruses are really too fussy and, in my opinion, it is better either to remove them and replace them with lighter ones or to configure them so as not to disturb navigation.
They are above all those who control the network, those who integrate a plugin for the browser and those who also act as firewalls and antiviruses that make the Internet slower.
On the AV-Test website you can find out which antivirus offers the most protection, remaining fast and light.
There are so many free antivirus programs that it shouldn't be difficult to find another one instead of the current one if it turns out to slow your computer down.
4) Unnecessary plugins
Plugins are loaded on each browser, i.e. additional software, which can slow down the loading of the internet and which are often useless.
As seen, it is convenient to remove the plugins both to navigate safer and to make the browser lighter.
Flash, for example, is a heavy plug-in, as are Silverlight, the PDF Reader, Java.
The best way to deal with this problem, if it is true however that plugins like Flash sometimes we need, is to activate the click-to-play option for all plugins.
In this way, all the contents of the web pages that require a plugin to load, remain still and require, for their execution, a user click.
This can be done in Chrome and Firefox in settings and on Safari with an extension called ClickToPlugin.
5) Use fast DNS
DNS (Dynamic Name Server) are computers that function as an Internet phone book.
Whenever you load a website such as navigaweb.net, the PC asks the DNS server where the site is located and what its IP address is.
This step is very fast, but can be more or less slow depending on the efficiency of the DNS server set.
Choosing the best DNS can therefore speed up the connection significantly.
On this topic, also to understand what I'm talking about, I refer you to the guide on how to always configure the fastest DNS.
