People just seem to love Google's Chrome browser. In fact, more than 35% of Internet users use Chrome. That's nearly as much as Internet Explorer and Firefox users combined.

For that reason - and the fact that Google makes both Android and Chrome - we shouldn't be surprised Chrome's popularity has seamlessly transitioned to the Android world. In fact, it's currently among the fastest and feature-rich of Android browsers.

Just one thing. There are many regular users who report that scrolling websites in Chrome on a smartphone or tablet can be a bit, well ... clunky.

The complaints really began to grow when Google completely replaced the "traditional" Android browser with Chrome as the default choice. At that time, many began to experience what they described as a lag when swiping, resizing and scrolling through Web pages.

It turns out, the problem at hand has little to do with hardware. We know this because the old Android browser option was outperforming Chrome even on dated device models up to two years old.

Oops.

Fortunately, there's a simple tweak you can make to bring back the speed you want.
