Browsers are hugely important and most of us expect them to be robust and fast especially when accessing email, news, entertainment or searching for something online. To speed up your browser, you can delete its history which over time grows quite large particularly if you use the browser a lot. As it maintains a complete list of every single website you visit. And make sure that you have the latest version installed because frequent updates can often fix the common issues related to its performance. If your browser is still running slow even after taking care of these mentioned things, it’s also worth checking your browser for unwanted add-ons to rule out possible slowdown issues.
While browser add-ons can enhance your online experience, occasionally they can slowdown the overall browsing experience substantially. Particularly the browsers with extreme amount of add-ons become noticeably slow.

Many applications that you run on your PC may install add-ons to your browser without your knowledge, or you click through the installation too fast and don’t realize that you accepted installation of the add-ons. To prevent this from happening take care to read and unselect the default check box, clicking through the Installation quickly may give your browser unwanted things.
