I have a 6 year old Dell laptop that's running Win XP Pro SP3, Intel 2 GHz processor and 1 GB or RAM. The loptop is used for web browsing and kids watch videos from the internet on it too. I'm using IE 8. A lot of the time I have multiple windows and 5 to 8 tabs open. When that happens the computer becomes really slow. I'm wondering if switching to a different browser would help with this issue. Any input is appreciated.
Chrome will help a little but the best way to speed up a computer with multiple browser tabs open is to upgrade the RAM. Run the Crucial System Scanner. This will tell you what type of RAM you have an your upgrade options.
