i7 2670qm
20 GB DDR3 RAM (8+4+4+4 1333mhz)
Micron RealSSD C400 128GB
2.5TB HDD (storage)
1000m (540m in consumer terms)

Alright, necroing this thread a bit.

The culprit was the Quadro 1000m /540m, it was on its way out. Replaced with a m5100 2GB some time ago (similar to 7770), everything has been snappy since.

Im curious if there are any other tweaks for getting the most out of my browser? I dont care about the hit on the hardware, this is mostly a school computer with some games on the side.

Using ublock origin already as well, and enabled Deepor's trick down below.

Thanks!

Which browser? Have gpu acceleration disabled? Some browsers need additional target line commands to completely disable GPU and are you running an ad blocker? I notice browsing is so much snappier with an ad blocker running.

Firefox is what I use.

Doesn't disabling acceleration make for a slower experience? I can try it when I get back home next week...

I always run an adblock

Firefox is equally slow on all my PCs, which range from an old Pentium 4 Prescott with integrated graphics running on the Microsoft basic VGA driver, to a Skylake Xeon with a GTX 950 and 32 GB RAM. Have you tried other browsers?

I've not had problems like that on my sig rig at all save for ocn.

I guess I could try other browsers but I need to know what it is that will enhance my Internet browsing.

Maybe I'll try doing a screen capture when I get back home to better demonstrate the issue I am having

Would still like to know what it is that benefits browsers the most in order to determine what to do with the laptop.

Thanks
