Speed Up Chrome for Android with this Settings Tweak

Android: Chrome is one of our favorite Android browsers, but it can be a little sluggish sometimes. This settings tweak, thanks to Redditor erythrocytes64, may give you a tidy speed boost, depending on your device.

In short, what you’re doing is giving Chrome access to more memory, and eliminating that stutter you get when scrolling up and down pages. All you have to do is open a new Chrome tab on your Android device, and paste this in the address bar:

chrome://flags/#max-tiles-for-interest-area

Bump that up to 512. Your changes won’t take effect until the next time Chrome is restarted, but you’ll see a button at the bottom that says “relaunch now.” Tap that, and Chrome will close, then re-open. It should be much snappier than before. I tested out the tweak, and sure enough, I saw better scrolling and navigation performance on my Moto X. It won’t make pages load faster, but it definitely makes them easier to browse.
