In the last week, Chrome (latest version, 24.0.1312.57) on Windows 7 (64 bit) has severely deteriorated in download speeds and latency. Using speedtest.net, Chrome is currently receiving ~2.5mbps down and ~600ms ping times, while Firefox, Safari, IE, and Opera consistently have ~40ms pings and ~12mbps download speeds.
So in an attempt to correct this issue, I've taken these steps:
- I first cleared the entire cache (no effect)
- I then disabled every extension (no effect)
- I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome (no effect)
- Ran a virus scanner (avast), no threats found
What's strange is that Chrome works fine if it's using an incognito tab. If anyone can help, that'd be great, because I do enjoy using Chrome over Firefox.
