Are you having problems navigating online from your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus? Does it feel like everything is moving too slow, lagging and driving you crazy? If it’s just browsing that feels too slow, and not the entire device, then you must be dealing with a problem on the Android browser, which, most likely is Google Chrome.
In today’s article, we’re going to expose some simple tricks designed to help when the Internet is slow, buggy and laggy. Our main purpose here will be to enable the browser to use more RAM, thus improving its performances. You should notice the change, particularly when scrolling.
While we cannot guarantee that your smartphone will navigate super-fast from now on, we are pretty confident that you’ll get a visible speed boost for general web browsing. The more images or animated GIFs you have on the pages you are trying to access, the more you will congratulate yourself for following our indications.
Here’s what you can try for faster web browsing on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.
How to tweak the browser settings to speed up web browsing
The only way to indicate your internet browser how much RAM to use is to access the hidden browser features of the Google Chrome. You need to type in a special address right into the address bar and to follow a couple of specific instructions:
- Launch the internet browser;
- Write in the address bar: chrome://flags;
- Browse for Maximum tiles for interest area – you’ll notice a tag like #max-tiles-for-interest-area;
- Tap on the drop-down menu labeled as Default;
- Change it to 512;
- Go to the bottom of the menu;
- Tap on Relaunch Now and confirm the changes.
From now on, your Internet speed should improve if, of course, you’re using the Chrome browser. Just make sure you don’t proceed with any other changes! The options and settings available in the Chrome://flags menu might be tempting. Yet as the big warning from the beginning of the page will tell you, they might make your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus unstable or affect its performances. Refrain from testing anything else than what we suggested you above!
