Chrome working slow! How to increase its speed.

Google Chrome is working slow
For those who have slow internet connection, I can't do anything about it. But those people who think that their chrome has been working fine at starting but later on it slowed down, first of all you may want to know why your Google chrome has became very slow. 

The reasons is that you may have installed too many apps and extensions or memory is very low(if not, this article is not for you). This article will help you to not only increasing chrome speed but will also increase system speed by increasing memory.

Google chrome treats each and every extension running as different application and these extensions uses some amount of memory. Run Google chrome and then go to WINDOWS TASKS MANAGER and in processes tab you will find out that many tasks named chrome.exe are running on your system. 
Now you may want to find out which app or extension is using more memory. You should go to CHROME TASK MANAGER and check which app and extension is using more memory.
Settings(icon at the upper-right corner) > Tools > Task Manager

Now how to solve this problem
You can uninstall or disable the apps and extension you are not using according to your needs....Uninstalling these apps will increase memory and increase the chrome speed.

What if you don't want to uninstall any apps or extensions?
Here is another solution, increase your system memory...but also you don't want to spend money on RAM...then what to do?
You can increase your virtual memory which not only will increase your browser speed but your system speed also and it will cost you nothing.

To increase virtual memory follow these steps:

In Windows XP

1.Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2.Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
3.On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
4.On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click Change.
5.Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file that you want to change.
6.Under Paging file size for selected drive, click to Custom size check box. You can enter the amount of memory you would like to reserve for Virtual memory by entering the initial and maximum size.
7.Click Set
When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.

In Vista

1. Click Start button Picture of the Start button
2. Click Control Panel
3. Choose System and Maintenance and then click System.
4. In the left pane, click Advanced system settings.
5.On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
6. Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, chooseChange.
