Chrome is a really good browser and one of its highlights is the speed on starting up and rendering Web pages.
Having it installed on the corporate office workstation, I noticed it was much slower and taking forever to load some really simple stuff.
After some research on Google, I found and tested successfully the following scenario:
- The proxy server is automatically configured through network policies.
- Configuring the proxy server directly, without automatic configuration, restores Chrome to its full speed.
- Start/Run the “Regedit” tool
- Find the key “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings”
- Set the ProxyEnable entry to “1″
- Create a “ProxyServer” String entry and set it to «your proxy server address»:«port used» (ex: 10.0.211.11:8080)
- Finally, go to your browser’s LAN settings and disable automatic configuration
