    Question Chrome - Super Slow

    Hello Everyone,

    This is a bit of a shout out to see if someone else has had this issue.

    About a week ago, I upgraded and rebuilt my machine in the house, installing a decent mobo and a Samsung SSD into the machine, everything has been correctly configured and seems to be running extremely well for the machine, its now booting to desktop within 12/15 seconds from the BIOS screen.

    I have done a complete OS reinstall sticking Windows 8.1 Pro back onto the machine as a fresh OS installation, I have changed all writes for things like Temps to the other hard drives I have in my machines to after following several guides on SSD optimisation and setup.

    Chrome though since reinstallation, has ground to a halt completely for me, if I attempt to load any webpage on it, I have a 5/10 second pause before it starts to load in the webpage, where it sits there doing nothing it seems. I have tried the usual things you would try such as "Disabling" extensions, off the machine to the point where I have nothing at all running, I have cleared all cookies and caches and removed and reinstalled the application and I am still getting this problem.

    It is only having any effect on my windows machine, my chromebook is working superfast as normal here with the extensions.

    I have checked Flash/Java and they are all up to date as its a recent installation.

    I am finding that alternative browsers such as Firefox and IE are flying along without a problem on the machine at the moment.

    Has anyone else experienced this ?

    Hmmm strange, have your tried Uninstalling Chrome, and running CCleaner to delete Temp Files and Registry Entry, Restart, Re-Install Chrome?

    What version of Chrome are you running x86 or x64? If it's x64 that you're trying out I'm pretty sure that's in Beta and that might be why you're experiencing some problems.

    Try the internal diags. First thing would be the network test.
    Paste this into your Chrome browser.

    Code:
    chrome://net-internals/#tests
    Try the Capture as well. See if this sheds any light.

    You should keep things like Chrome's cache on the SSD. Reading and writing lots of small files is what SSDs are best at.

    The reason some guides still recommend moving temp files and the page file is due to the "stuttering" issues the first gen. SSDs had (particular those from OCZ!). You really do not have to do this now.

    The 64-bit version of Chrome for Windows is stable now.

    I haven't to my knowledge moved the webcaches, as I assume thats in the Users directory with the other files in appdata, what I have done is changed the system TEMP variables to my E: drive temp directory and also I have just changed the save locations for "Documents/Videos/Music/Downloads" to the E: drive, the SSD is configured to max reliability using the samsung magician software

    I will run the tests tonight, its very strange, because it was struggling hard even trying to load a google search using chrome, with no extensions, which was instant before the SSD, to make matters worse chrome is now being outgunned by IE on the machine and I have had to switch to firefox at the moment, which isnt ideal.

    Thats run on youtube.com and it has massive latency for some reason I cant see, IPv6 is unbound on my network adapter(box unticked in windows), its a fresh chrome install on stable channel with no bookmarks / imports or accounts in it.

    Firefox just flies to the link I want, this has a 5 second + pause here on loading any page.

    I dont have any proxy settings either, only thing ticked for internet is Automatically Detect Settings

    Just did a traceroute to youtube and all hops are sub 30ms too.

    Chrome's diagnostics mode might be worth running.

    Code:
    chrome.exe --diagnostics

    Some people are also reporting that switching to the Beta channel fixes the slowness issue with Chrome 37.

    Have you tried re-enabling IPv6 since disabling it can sometimes cause issues even if you are not using IPv6.

    https://code.google.com/p/chromium/i...tail?id=336763 - thats the problem I have on running the diagnostics bit, no cure though apparently.

    Chrome Canary - Same issue here at the moment, very unusual problem tbh I have tried redoing the profile as well to no joy so far.

    Just happy it works on chromebook here atm
