How fast is your browser ?

Chromium, on a 2010 McClunker.

@ML_113Chromium is usually reasonably quick. Did yu have any extensions/addons enabled?

Do you usually use any other browser that you can try?
 
OK, Bob, do I have to move to the city that can put on 4 seasons in one day to get infinity?

Lol

I don't know why three different results...all from the same ISP.

I do know Firefox has always been the slowest to load compared to Brave which opens in a flash.

I have Firefox ESR, seldom used - Chromium is fast enough for me.
It's slow when starting or changing web sites, otherwise it does not sap my patience. No extensions added.

A result like this can only be compared if you are on the same plan...xx mb/second etc etc

If your isp says you should get xx/sec download rate.....you should get it regardless if you are in woop woop or the back of
beyond.

Make sure you are disabling extensions/addons when you do the test. An errant extension can slow things down big time

In brave, click on the hamburger menu and select Extensions, then move the slider to the off position.

Dont forget to move then back after

In firefox....hamburger..select addons & themes.......deselect each add on
 
I must remember that, myself.

Ta, Brian.
 
Firefox with all add-ons disabled...

Your previous result was :

....and you now have 21.4 as a result of disabling add ons...

That has to tell you that one of your add ons is causing a fairly serious slow down

Just to check, run it again without add ons at the same time you ran the test this morning.

Too much trouble...I have the same add-ons on Brave and get Infinity...Firefox at times is slow to load and sometimes drops out...such is life.

  • Firefox (with Ublock): 6.37.
  • Chromium (with Ublock): 5.36
Compared to all of your results, my browsers are snails, haha. I primarily use Firefox.
 
Never really thought abought how fast my browser was as it's always worked fine.

Here's mine results using Chromium and Ublock Origin and Privacy Badger.

@The Duck ....try running the test without the add ons......just disable them for a short time
 
@Condobloke
As you requested with Ublock Origin and Privacy Badger disabled.
A bit of a difference with all of the ADs running wild.

Basically no difference.

Oldish pc ?.....

Ram ?....HDD or SSD ?

Is upgrading your isp connection feasible ?
 
@Condobloke

(1) stick 8.0GB DDR3 ram.
A mechanical HDD pulled from a laptop.
Basically a put together from junk box spare parts.
Cost time and effort to put it together and install Linux.

I have fiber optic internet.
 
An ssd might frighten the life out of it....
 
DOWNLOAD Mbps
368.79
UPLOAD Mbps
370.97

I have good internet speed.
Yeah an SSD may just scare the life out of it.

You certainly do have good download speed...I get 100mbps and now can get 700mbps. Only problem I'd have to buy a new Modem and pay heaps more...forget it.
