Chrome is clean, reliable, and syncs perfectly with your Chrome desktop browser. A smartphone with low RAM or slow Internet bandwidth might cause a lagging issue. That’s why people with slow Internet connection prefer to use other browsers like Opera Mini, UC browser, etc. People, who would want to use it as a primary browser like the computer, they should try these simple tweaks to speed up chrome browser on Android.
Why Chrome Lags a Lot on Android?
Google chrome is the pre-installed and user-friendly web browser for Android devices. By default, it comes with 64MB of limited RAM using capacity. When you open multiple tabs in Chrome, it slows down due to the shortage of memory. If you’ll assign a higher memory use, then it’ll run smoothly.
The second reason is, Chrome allows the user to take the full benefits of web browsing like a desktop browser. That’s why it runs each and every element on a webpage. So, it takes more time to load in a slow Internet connection.
