A few tips that can make your Chrome run faster include the following-

1. Disable plug in
When you install Chrome, a lot of plugins get installed- some of them being flash, java etc. These plugins slow down the performance. You can disable the plugins you don't need. Type " about:plugins" in the address bar and search. Disable the ones you don't need from the list of results.

2. Disable Extensions
You might have installed some browser extensions for some specific needs. Some of them get installed without your knowledge. A few of them may not needed after the work done. You can uninstall the unneeded extensions or disable them for time being. Go to Tools> Extensions and either disable or uninstall based on your needs.

3. Clear browsing data
The purpose of having a cache is to speed up the browsing experience by having local content. But at times this data gets so large that it hampers the very purpose of it. You can decide to clear your browsing data for a few particular items, a specific time frame or also decide to clear your entire browsing history. It is not advised, however, to frequently clear your history as it may defeat the purpose of having a cache.

4. Scan for Malware/Adware
Malware and Adware can cause the browser to go unstable. Using an anti virus may not identify a Adware. Install a reliable Malware/Adware removal tool to scan and remove the Adware.
