Here are a few things you can try if you'd like to check your computer's performance:
Check for Updates
Ensure your browser (ideally Chrome) is up to date.
Also check that you are working off of the most recent operating system for your computer.
Simply Google 'Speed Test' and click the blue button and Google will diagnose your internet connection
If you're on a Mac, click the search icon in the top right of your screen and search for 'Activity Monitor'. From here you'll be able to see how much available RAM you've got on your system with your current set up.
You can head into the Memory Tab and see how much Physical Memory you're using. If you're working of a computer with 8 gigs of Physical Memory and you're already using 7.8 gigs, then you are likely to encounter slowness. You can free up more RAM by closing unused programs.
You can also search by 'Chrome' to see how much memory the browser is taking up in your system.
In CPU you can see which of your active applications is taking the biggest toll on your system. Keep an eye out for Chrome, Zoom, or other heavy hitters.
The Great Suspender
This handy Plug-In for chrome will 'sleep' other tabs to clear up some RAM on your system.
Not all Plug-Ins are as awesome as The Great Suspender. Check which other Plug-Ins may be slowing down your system by clicking the three vertical dots in the top of chrome and click 'More Tools' and then 'Extensions'.
Now you can manage any unneeded (or unrecognized!) Plug-Ins that may be slowing down your browser.
