If you are a Google Chrome user, you might have experienced lag issues while switching tabs, scrolling through pages or sudden Force close in Android. It doesn’t matter what phone you have, you might face this issue. After Google Chrome went open source, it offers many options to manage its internal settings. By default Google Chrome uses very small amount of your RAM. But, what if you have enough RAM & still you are facing lag? You can increase the RAM share of Google Chrome by one simple method. This method hardly takes a minute and its too easy to follow. So, lets get started with Increasing Google Chrome Speed in Android and Windows.

Increase Chrome Speed :

1. Launch the Google Chrome in your Phone (Close all other Apps)

2. Type “chrome://flags/#max-tiles-for-interest-area” in the Address bar without inverted commas and click enter. It will see something similar to this :

3. Now, Click on the option at which the arrow is pointing in the above image. By default Google Chrome is restricted to use very less RAM of your device which leads to lag & crash. Now, depending on the RAM of your device, select RAM share. For Eg : If you have 1GB of RAM, selecting 256MB would be a wise decision if you use chrome normally. But, if you use browser for long time, select 512MB (Maximum). If you have a device with 512MB RAM, select 128MB and so on. In my case I have a 1GB RAM device but use my browser too much. Make sure you select the best option as per your device because if you select the Maximum one, it would slow down your device. You can experiment the best Option for you by changing the limit & check the performance.
