WOW! The fastest browser experience ever...

    If you're like me, you're on the internet about 23 hours a day. I probably load 10,000 pages per day. I have no idea. But I'm on ALL the time. And every pageload counts - it's time out of my life - so I try to get the fastest browsing time possible. 

    So, I use Google Chrome as my browser. 

    And now, I just made it HUGELY faster by using this: http://www.downloadsquad.com/2010/11/10/how-to-move-the-firefox-or-chrome-cache-to-a-ram-disk-and-speed/ 

    Amazing!!!

    You're welcome :)

    Wow, that would be cool. Too bad this computer is so old that I don't have the RAM to spare :-(

    If I correctly understand the whole "Chuck Norris" joke genre, you have violated the principles by attributing something to him that's physically possible. 25 hours would be allowed.

    I either live in a backwater or am too old. I had never heard of Chuck Norris ... until now. This is what I got when I googled Chuck:

    Google won't search for Chuck Norris because it knows you don't find Chuck Norris, he finds you.

    Tongue out

    That would only fulfill the first requirement of the most common form of the Chuck Norris joke. You must state something that is already physically impossible, and then include a condition which would make it even more impossible.

    Chuck Norris is on 25 hours a day and he still gets laid.

    Erik - thanks for the tip.  I just installed it and added cache for both firefox and chrome into a RAM disk, and it was like getting a new computer (kinda...)

    Now, if this would help me with my chess endgame theory, I'd be in heaven... Cool

    I would love to move over to Chrome, but I've sold my soul to a handful of Firefox add-ons I now can't live without.  Undecided

    Erik,

    I recommend instead installing the Steve Jobs plugin - no need to speed up from hard disk.

    There are many ways to increase browser speed, one of the fastest is to remove all the graphics and the jingles and animations.

    If you tell us your system basics, CPU , HD size, memory, cache, if any external back up drive or even a flash drive and browser that you use, there might be a solution to speed up your browsing experience. Actually even the motherboard that you have can help figure out the possible avenues.

    Why not give a try and list your components?


    My browser speed is already fairly fast. I use Chrome, which is hands-down the fastest browser for most of the web. I just like this idea that Erik posted, as I'm online a lot too, and like that extra speed without losing things like graphics. But my computer has 2GB RAM, but a not-insignificant portion of that is used up by the on-board video card with only 64MB of it's own RAM, so it shares system RAM.

    I'm saving for a new, better computer, and when I've done that I may use this method, but until then, I'll live with what I have...

    anybody know if this works for derivatives of chrome, like SRWare Iron?


    That all depends on weather you can tell your browser where to store it's cache. If you CAN, this will work.

    I was going to bag on you because of your choice of mac product but i decided that i cannot bring myself to do it. I have recently decided a mac machine is a worth while investment, just not something i would throw my money at. ;)

    OMG i just read that article wow. You actually did that erik? I guess being a webpreneur your web browser speed is paramount. I will not be doing this as i like my computer to be able to do other things not just browse the web. ;) Putting a windows swap file on ones ram disk just spells disaster. You know you will end up killing you ram disk right?
