How to Fix Slow Load Times in the Arc Browser

Experiencing performance issues while using the Arc browser can be caused by a number of factors. Often, this issue arises due to corrupted application data, including cache, settings, and cookies. This data is necessary for Arc to function properly.

In most cases, Arc does not work correctly when the application data is corrupted. However, other factors such as interference from extensions, corrupted application files, and running many third-party applications can also cause this issue.

Before we discuss the solutions, try restarting your computer and avoid opening too many new tabs. Restarting the computer can fix performance issues with the Arc browser, as it reloads data from memory and restarts services to clear out bugs and glitches that might be causing the problem.

1. Disable Unnecessary Extensions

If you have too many extensions enabled in your Arc browser, the first thing you should do is remove the unnecessary ones and keep only those that you are most likely to use in the future.

Too many extensions can consume a significant amount of memory, leading to performance issues with Arc. Therefore, either remove unnecessary extensions or disable all extensions to see if the problem is resolved.

  1. Click the Arc Logo icon from the top bar and hover over Extensions.
  2. Now click Manage Extensions. Here, you can either disable unnecessary extensions or remove them.
  3. Once done, see if the issue has been resolved.

2. Reset or Repair Arc

Resetting the Arc browser will remove app data such as user settings, authentication cookies, and frequently accessed data also known as cache data. However, repairing the Arc browser will fix any corrupted files that may cause this issue.

There are times when the application data becomes corrupted, leading to various issues, especially with Arc. Therefore, you should try repairing or resetting the Arc browser to resolve this problem.

  1. Press Win and type Arc.
  2. Right-click on it and select App Settings.
  3. Here, scroll down to the bottom.
  4. First, click the Repair option and wait for it to be completed.
  5. Once done, if the issue persists, try resetting the Arc app.

3. Close Unnecessary Background Applications

Slow performance often occurs when many applications are running simultaneously in the background, using a significant amount of RAM (memory), which results in performance loss. Ensure that unnecessary background applications are not running while browsing on the Arc browser.

4. Update the Arc Browser

Outdated applications can lead to performance issues. Ensure you are running the latest version of the Arc browser.

  1. Open the Arc App, click the Arc icon from the top, and select Check for updates.
  2. If updates are found, click Install & Restart.
  3. Once done, check if the problem is resolved.

Finally, if none of the solutions have resolved the issue, consider reinstalling the Arc browser. This can help if there are corrupted application files causing the problem. Additionally, you can contact the official support team of Arc Browser for further assistance regarding this issue.
