Shutting off notifications really improved my Chrome performance

I rarely go to my Facebook page. Occasionally I like to post off the wall stuff. I haven't posted to my wall in over year. A few days ago I posted and there was a popup that came up. But I clicked on it but I thought it was just some BS message from Facebook. What it did was turn on Facebook notifications in my browser. So today I found all the Facebook notifications popping up really irritating. So I starting hacking about the settings to shut if off. I notice there were a ton of things requiring notifications. So I shut it ALL OFF. And now my browser is waking much faster. I would rather have pages load as fast as possible than have extra HTTP traffic on crap I can look at when I want to look at it. That's what makes the internet great is I am in charge of what I read. It's really irritating to me when the internet starts showing me stuff I never asked to look it.

Anyway, shutting off notifications sped my Chrome browser. Much better.

I recommend Brave browser, especially if the user likes Chrome.

Anyone tolerating popups in this day and age is an insult to our species, IMO.

The Brave suggestion is alright- I just started checking it out on the pc a few days back but I've been using it for a few years on mobile and the only complaints I have are how websites don't "just work"- but all of the problems are easily tracked back to "working" meaning implicit spying on you.

The internet was a much better place when it was only nerds. Once the average idiot started logging on it all went to hell.
