Faster download speeds in web browsers have always been a feature that most widely used web browsers fail to provide by default. But when parallel downloading is enabled on Google Chrome, the browser can create three parallel downloads concurrently. Usually, people use tools like Internet Download Manager, which can form multiple connections to the host to download a single file in various parts. But this feature is not enabled in any Web browser by default.
But there is a way to improve the download speed on Google Chrome: enabling parallel downloads. If you want to allow parallel downloads in Google Chrome, you have come to the right place. Here, we will take you through the steps you can take to ensure you get parallel downloads in Google Chrome. So, without any further ado, let’s get into it.
How to enable Parallel downloading in Google Chrome?
Browsers like Google Chrome are restricted to the number of concurrent connections they can have with the host. But with parallel downloading enabled, Google Chrome can establish multiple connections to the host, allowing it to download a single file in parts. This is exactly what we see in tools like Internet Download Manager.
Chrome Dev and Chrome Canary have this feature by default. However, the stable public build of Google Chrome has this feature disabled by default. However, you can enable it in your Chrome browser to enjoy faster download speeds, and here in this article, we will guide you through it.
Enable parallel downloading in the PC application:
- Open the Google Web browser on your PC.
- In the address bar, enter “chrome://flags,” and press enter
- You will go to the experiments page of Google Chrome.
- Search for “Parallel Downloading” here, and once you see it, click on the Default button.
- A drop-down menu will appear after this. Choose Enabled in the list of options that show up.
- Now Chrome will ask you to relaunch the application. It is the same as restarting Google Chrome on your system.
After the relaunch is complete, try downloading any file in Chrome. It should download faster than usual, and you can make the most of this parallel download feature.
