You may have experienced slow browsing on many an occasion. Often, there is a difference between a system being slow and the internet browsing being too slow. The slowness of internet browsing may not be because of your system or the internet service provider. It can happen due to several other reasons like the storage of the temporary files on the system, the toolbars, the add-ons and the extensions that are loaded with your web browser.
How do you get rid of this slow browsing on the net? You will not realize that your browser will store few temporary files on the system. The load increases with the other websites that you surf in time. The temporary files slow down your system. You can rectify that by clearing the temporary files stored with your user profile regularly, maybe once or twice a month. It will help to give you good speed when you surf on the web.
You can clear the history of the browser on a regular basis and this also helps to clear many temporary files. Many toolbars, add-ons and extensions installed with your browser harm the internet browsing speed. These things could also be a source of bad attack on your system. As far as the security of your computer is concerned, some of the toolbars are too vulnerable as they allow malicious software to get into your PC. They also reduce the area for display of web pages on the browser besides displaying irritating and unsolicited information.
It is always safer not to install any free toolbar offered by several websites unless you are absolutely sure that it is essential and safe for your system. Many toolbars can be used as hijackers that can filter out important data from your system and harm it too.
