Web Boost is a free Chrome Extension to Boost Internet speed. You must be wondering, how to boost internet speed with this lightweight Chrome extension? Well, it is one of the most innovative technique which can increase internet speed, and also consumes less data. This Open Source tool is loaded with hand picked Website Building Blocks. A majority of websites use these blocks in their structures. Whenever you browse a website on Chrome, these blocks do not get downloaded, and as a result the websites load faster.

How does Web Boost Works:

Web boost stores the hand-checked building blocks on your computer. This internet booster tool checks a website before opening it in Chrome. After checking a website, it does not download the Blocks which are already available on your computer.

Once you add this extension to Google Chrome, it automatically starts working after the installation. Look for the Web Boost Icon on the right hand side of the Address Bar. When you click the Icon, the extension displays the following stats:

  • Boosting Enabled/Disabled for the current website.
  • Number and Names of the Blocks boosted on the current website.
  • Total number of Blocks boosted.

You can also Enable/Disable Web Boost for a website if you want. Web Boost displays the name of the Web Building Blocks, like Jquery, bootstrap, and fonts.
