[Chrome] Chrome Is Taking A Long Time To Load

I am running Win 7 Pro 64 bit and the latest stable version of Chrome. When I open Chrome, it takes a long time to get to my Home Page, which is Yahoo. It does not say "resolving proxy" when opening, so I don't know what's wrong. Once it is open and loaded, it works fine. Any ideas?

Is it on any first page load? (like if you changed the homepage to Google or something else) ..if not, maybe it's just Yahoo that's having an issue

Yahoo has seemed a bit slower to me of late.

What about opening a new tab or new window from the original page once loaded (humor me, I'm having something similar & trying to rule out)

Opening a new tab or window is no problem.

Thank you for that - it's the same for me

I'm not sure I'm done ruling out my security software set-up ...not yet anyways.

FYI, it only happens on my Notebook PC. I am out of town, and it doesn't happen on my 2 iMacs, which are at home.

Running Avast Pro and SAS real time.

I noticed it too. I thought maybe it was because I use OpenDNS but Firefox opens the page right away. It only happens when loading your homepage when first opening the browser which for me is my.yahoo.com. It is no big deal as I love Google Chrome as it is a much light weight browser than Firefox. Don't get me wrong I still love Firefox but Chrome opens up in less than a second.

Also I use NOD32 antivirus so that could be the cause.

If Google Chrome seems to take a long time to load a website or search, it may be configured to access pages through a web proxy. Check whether the "Resolving proxy" message appears in the lower-left corner of the browser window.Visit this if so-
»www.google.com/support/chrome/bi ··· r=106010
Also the other reasons may be-
Theinternet surfing speed suffers when loading heavy JavaScript web pages. Memory consumption in Chrome is optimum as it uses the same tabs for opening pages. The CPU usage by Chrome is also one of the factors web as page loading time is averagely 1.34 seconds; so memory release may be considered a safe bet.

Try clearing the cache:

Click on Wrench, then Options, Under the Bonnet, Privacy, Clear Browsing Data

Thanks terry & Zak..I clear my cache regularly (daily)..and did find the Google Support link re: proxies

I can't speak for lordpuffer See Profile, but I'm leaning toward security setup (in which case I'll lose the browser way before I change my setup). BTW Javascript is off unless I enable.

Currently researching this thru security channels, and hear many having issues.

did you try disabling hardware acceleration?

»www.jkwebtalks.com/2011/03/enabl ··· ion.html

I can say that disabling acceleration in my browsers and flash have eliminated 100% of my browser issues (slow loading, crashing, etc)..

Thanks everyone.....Same as lilhurricane See Profile. It doesn't seem to be a proxy issue, and I clear my cache daily also. My Notebook is in the hands of another person who is using it right now, but I also think it's security software related. When I get it back, I'll look into the hardware acceleration.

What version of Chrome is that link for? I don't have those three in my version of Chrome, which is the latest.

either one.. current release 15.0.874.121:




beta release 16.0.912.41 :




Note the settings above on both.. GPU Composting and GPU Accelerated Canvas - those are the two you really need worry about, the pre-rendering has nothing to do with the hardware acceleration.

The latest version of Chrome does not have the same settings as shown in that link. The first two may still exist, but are labelled differently now. The prerendering setting is not at all present.

Are you seeing different results in your version? Screenshot?

When I get my PC back (from my Mom, who is using it ), I'm going to disable my AV software and see what happens.

Re: [Chrome] Chrome Is Taking A Long Time To Load

I have a newer laptop now and it still happens, even when I disable my Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware software.

It must be something that is running in the background causing it. A friend of mine doesn't have this problem, and I cannot figure out the difference.

I bet the difference is in the video card and drivers used.. What type of video card is in the new laptop? Did you ever try disabling the hardware rendering / acceleration on Chrome?

Thanks. I'll post the type of video card sometime today (it's probably an integrated one) when I pull out my laptop. I'll also disable the hardware acceleration and see if that helps.

My Video Card is an AMD Radeon (TM) HD 6470M running the Driver Version 8.862.4.2000.

I didn't see the option to disable Hardware Acceleration in the Options in Chrome. Is it in the Options somewhere and I'm missing it?

type in the url bar instead of a web address type.. about:flags

look for an option with GPU composting in it (they seem to keep changing the name of this field).. make sure that is disabled..

also look for GPU Accelerated Painting - disable that along with GPU Accelerated SVG and CSS Filters

that should do it.

Thanks for the help, however I went to the page you mentioned and there were too many warnings on the top of the page that you are taking a big chance changing settings. A little above my comfort level.

How many extensions do you have running?
Wrench (top right) \ Options \ Extensions

As you can see I have 8 subdivisions running in Chrome.exe plus the main one (Process Explorer). Under extensions in Chrome I have 8 checked off.

My Chrome sometimes takes time to load as well but I like the extensions I have chosen.
