Speed up your computer-Really!

I'm not a tech blogger but I found something so unbelievably helpful to my business, I had to share it. Up until now, I thought that the speed of my internet connection and ram were the main factors in how fast a web page would load. Friends, this is not so! The browser you choose to use is big factor and some hog more memory than others.

Each browser comes free and with default settings. Just out of the box, here are the rankings from my research. From fastest to slowest on average:
  • Safari
  • Opera
  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer
  • Firefox
I know there are other browsers out there but these have all the add-on stuff we want and are the most supported. If you are in business online for whatever reason, you need your browser to work quickly. I never knew you could get into the code of your browser and make it faster and customize it easily. Now, here is the tip of the year as far as I'm concerned. The following link will take you the MakeTechEasier website to configure Firefox. I followed their easy directions to make Firefox faster. The result?

After reconfiguring Firefox following the FREE directions, not only does Firefox run 5 times faster, but my entire computer runs faster and so does Internet Explorer. Maybe I just got lucky, but using MakeTechEasier to make one browser faster seemed to speed up all the programs on my computer in general since all browsers take up so much of your operating system resources.

This will take you 10 minutes. As a disclaimer, I do not work for or advertise for any company I promote on my blog. Using their configuration tricks, I've just made my business much more efficient.

I hope this helps you as much as it helped me.

To Your Wealth!
