Set Up a Secondary Browser Optimized for Slow Internet Connections

I’m currently working on building a website for an organization that operates in a number of locations in the developing world. Communicating with people in the field can be taxing simple because they have incredibly poor internet connectivity.

Poor internet connections aren’t unique to the developing world, you can encounter them anywhere. This is why it’s a good idea to set up a secondary browser that is optimized for slow internet connections. It’s easy to do, takes about 10 minutes, and when you need it, it’s there.

Lifehacker has a quick guide to setting one up.

I’m using Opera, and I’m really impressed with how much more efficient the backup browser is when I’m poorly connected.

Regardless of your travel plans, it’s good to have a secondary browser that is optimized for slow internet connections preset on your laptop. You never know when you will need it.

Let me know if you have any questions about setting up a backup browser that Lifehacker hasn’t addressed.

  1. Great tip D. Opera is my primary browser and is the only one that hasn’t given me problems. I use Chrome or Flashpeak Slim as my secondary.
