This trick is pretty...I'd say underrated. People know this already, but they don't know how value it is to make everything smoother.

My phone has 2 gigs, did a quick test before and after changing settings and it really improved, so now all I want is a good ad-blocker to make browsing even faster.

I don't understand how giving Chrome less RAM speeds it up. The RAM that it is given will fill up faster, therefore, will cause Chrome to become slow more quickly. It should be that you need to give more RAM help to speed something.

Thanks for the tip that we can adjust how much ram we want allocate. But I don't fully understand either- if we want chrome to run smoother we must allocate more ram to it, right?
