SPEED UP YOUR BROWSER
If your web browser is groaning under the weight of all those open tabs, you might be able to improve performance without having to close them all. If you’re a Firefox user with lots of RAM, open “Settings > General,” and uncheck “Use recommended performance settings.” Then, if it’s not grayed out, up the “Content process limit” to four or even higher, to see whether it helps.
Next, there are a few browser-related efficiency tips you can try to speed things up generally. First, enable your browser’s Bookmarks bar, giving you one-click access to your favorite websites. Also, right-click frequently used tabs, and look for a “Pin Tab” option, to make them permanently available.
Speed up logging into websites—and make them more secure at the same time—using either the LastPass ( www. lastpass.com) or KeePass ( www.keepass.info) password managers. Finally, make better use of search engine timesavers—Google users can perform quick conversions direct from the search bar (“$5 to CAD”), and search a specific website’s content by prefixing the search terms with “site:pcgamer.com,” for example.
