Slow to fetch web pages - Edge and Chrome

Is there a way to speed up Edge for web browsing as pages seem to take a while to fetch and load. Chrome is worse with added stutter.

I am using Avira, so not sure if that is causing the issue - are there any more suited antivirus software options?

Re: Slow to fetch web pages - Edge and Chrome

After upgrading to Windows 10 I have started using Firefox as my daily browser since Edge has been really buggy and does not support extensions while Google Chrome has been really flaky at times. I use Avast Free Edition as my AV for more than 4 years now and it has served me well.
