I know many of you are using high-speed internet but there are still may users out there who are using 128 – 512 kbps connection. Specially in a Developing country like India it is very common. If you are one of those and frustrated by the time required to load a web-page then this article is for you. I will tell you how to increase your browsing speed without compromising the usability.
First of all let me ask you a simple question. Have you ever used the “Social Bookmarking Widgets” often found in a web site to share about that page. If you have a slow internet connection who is struggling to load a page, then you have hardly ever feel the necessity to share that page. In that case the “Social Media Buttons” are just useless components of that web-page. Do you know one thing that these buttons can be the cause for your slow surfing speed. To display these buttons, your browser have to download almost 70-80 kb of additional data. so by preventing these data from download, you can speed up your web-browsing. This is also vey helpful from your Privacy Prospective. No matter what the reason, you can Block these “Social Sharing Widgets” in your Browser.
If you are using “Google Chrome” then you can use Widget Block extension to block those “Social Sharing Widgets” and our Firefox user can use ShareMeNot and WallFlower Add-On to get the same functionality.
