When you’re experiencing internet browser issues, the solution is often simpler than you might think! We’ve compiled a list of the top five things to try the next time you’re having trouble.
Ensure Your Browser is up to Date
If some of the things you want or need to access aren’t working correctly, you could be running an out-of-date version of your internet browser. Most browsers will update automatically unless you’ve accidentally disabled automatic updates. Here’s how to check for updates on your browser >>
Clear Your Cookies and Cache
When you visit a website, your internet browser holds on to information so you can access the website quicker in the future. Over time, that information builds up and can cause your browser to run slowly. You might also experience login issues. It’s a good idea to clear out your cache, browser history and cookies on a regular basis. Clear your cache and browser history >>
Do a “Hard Refresh”
A hard refresh clears the browser’s cache for a specific page, forcing it to load the most recent version. Sometimes when a website is updated, the changes are not seen right away because the browser is still using an older version of the page which helps the browser to load pages faster.

Be Mindful of Your Tabs
Managing your open tabs more efficiently will also help you browse faster. The more tabs you have open, the slower your browser is going to run. This can be as simple as keeping the number of open tabs you have down to a minimum. This isn’t easy in today’s age of web apps and information overload but try resisting the temptation to keep a dozen tabs open at once. If you have sites that you need to continually reference, try bookmarking them.
