I installed google chrome about 6 months ago. However, day by day it would slow down. Recently it would take over a minute to open the browser, and another minute to close it down, all this time the hard drive is making all kinds of clicking noise, and the computer is basically non functional when the hard drive is clicking. ( I have xp, 1gh processor, 512mb ram)
All I needed to do is on the chrome browser, go to: history> clear browsing data
This completely solved the problem. Now the browser opens and closes in seconds.

In linux, the shortcut should look like this:Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
Good tip RacerInside Every Older Person Is A Younger Person Wondering What The Hell Happened.
DECENT browsers let the user easily choose how many days (Seamonkey) or entries (0LD Opera) will be dedicated to the browsing history.
You can also choose to erase it all with a few clicks on the settings applet.

I actually like Chrome. I run it in Linux and on my tablet. I won't install it in Windows however, because it likes to take over. That doesn't happen in Linux. Anyway, to each his own............Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
