Fine-tuning the software settings of smartphones and desktop computers to unlock the hidden potential of the devices will deliver faster performance.

This is especially true if the device underperforms with usage over a period of time, and loading apps becomes stubbornly slow and painful due to un-optimised third-party apps and software running in system memory.

Some of these software settings are diligently hidden from the casual user as their functionality undergoes an experimental phase through developer testing.

For instance, the Chrome browser only uses 128MB of RAM by default and we could assign more RAM to the app via hidden settings for faster performance, and overall smoother browsing experience on your Android phone or tablet and Windows, Linux, Mac and Chrome OS systems.

Here is how you can speed up your Chrome browser for a more stable and smoother performance on your device:
