Sometimes you try everything you can to speed up Chrome but it’s still invariably slooow.
So here’s the thing: the next time your browser crawls, glance in the bottom left edge of the browser. Does it say: “Downloading Proxy Script?” If so, here’s a quick fix to make Chrome stop the shenanigans and just load your websites.
The “Downloading proxy script” zinger is often a corollary of how your PC is configured to connect to the internet. A proxy is the middle man you use to get out to the interwebs.
Some IT departments use proxies to filter data, control content or improve performance. Others use it as a way to connect to the corporate network. Whatever the case may be, you can often resolve the problem by disabling Automatically Detect Settings in your Internet Options.
Let’s do this.
Press the Windows logo key and enter this phrase:
Now click the Connections tab and choose the LAN settings button nestled in the bottom corner of the window.
Uncheck Automatically detect settings and click all the OK buttons to close out the windows.
Now the next time you kick open Chrome it should load without any issues. Let me know if that didn’t work for you in the comments.
