It’ll tell you if yours is up-to-date.

If it’s not, update it now.


BROUGHT TO YOU BY

NEEVA

To re-imagine search. By rejecting the ad-support model, Neeva is building a search experience that puts the user first, does not compromise on quality or privacy, and is leading a new frontier by leveraging in house large language models (LLMs) and refined training models with its full system search stack to bring authentic real time AI search to the masses.

Information reliability, accuracy and authenticity is going to be a problem to solve in the age of AI. The easier content is to produce, the harder it is to know if something is right or wrong. I’m going to follow Neeva because their mission is bold and exciting. One of our most valuable traits as human being is knowing how to adapt and making decisions with the right amount of information. AI is an incredible piece of technology if we use it to gather information and make a decision. AI is dangerous piece of technology if we delegate all of our thinking to it.

1: Clear your browsing data.

As you visit more + more websites, data accumulates in Chrome.

This slows your browser down.

Have a clear out:

  • Choose the ‘Chrome’ tab

  • Click ‘clear browsing data’

  • Choose ‘All time’

Now you can select which elements you want to clear.

Then clear your data.


2: Set up auto-delete.

Clearing data ONCE isn’t enough - do it regularly to ensure it doesn't accumulate again.

Click:

  • Options

  • Settings

  • Manage Google account

  • Manage data + personalization

  • Manage data + privacy

  • Web + app activity

Turn auto-delete on + delete your old activity automatically.


3: Disable extensions you aren’t using.

Extensions are wonderful, but they slow down your computer.

Remove the extensions you don’t actually need:

  • Go to 'Options'

  • Click 'More tools'

  • Choose 'Extensions'

Then disable and remove the ones you no longer use.


4: Remove web apps.

Chrome apps suck memory so if you don’t need them, remove them.

Go to chrome://apps to see which you have installed:

  • Right click on any you don’t use

  • Remove them

It’s time for a clear out.


5: Make webpages open faster with prefetch.

Prefetch anticipates where you might go next.

Turn prefetch on with the following steps:

  • Go to chrome://settings/cookies

  • Turn on ‘preload pages for faster browsing’

It loads your next page in the background for faster access.


6: Suspend your tabs.

I often have a gazillion tabs open at once which slows my browser.

The Great Suspender app solves this:

  • It suspends tabs I’ve not used for a while.

  • But keeps them open for when I need them

This saves on memory while tabs are dormant.

DOWNLOAD EXTENSION HERE.


7: Use experimental features

Go to chrome://flags to use these.

Here, you can try features that haven’t been fully released.

Consider these 3 flags:

  • ‘Parallel downloading’ improves download speed

  • ‘Back-forward cache’ stores sites for quick use

  • ‘Override software rendering list’ uses GPU acceleration

Give them a go.

EXTRA TIP

Do you use Incognito Mode?

I am sure you do but do you know the history is actually.... saved?

And yeah, someone can actually go through that

So, how do you delete that?

Copy this

chrome://net-internals/#dns

Now - clear host cache

I bet you loved this one 😬, am I right ?
