If Google Chrome seems to take a long time to load a website or search, it may be configured to access pages through a web proxy. Check whether the "Resolving proxy" message appears in the lower-left corner of the browser window.
Follow these steps to change your proxy setting (for Windows):
- Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
- Select Settings.
- Click Show advanced settings.
- In the "Network" section, click Change proxy settings. This will open the Internet Properties dialog.
- Click LAN settings .
- Deselect the "Automatically detect settings" checkbox.
The steps above will change your proxy settings, potentially disabling your web proxy. Consult your system administrator if you're unsure about this setting.
