This is more of a performance question than one having to do with hardware. However, I could not find a more appropriately named forum so I'll ask it here. There is an annoying phenomenon to which I dubbed the name "teaser" screen. Teaser screens occur frequently during Internet browsing. Typically, one navigates to a new or previously viewed URL. Eventually the desired screen displays, but before one can discern its content the screen goes blank, reappearing only after many agonizing seconds tick by. In other words, the screen teases the viewer.

What causes "teaser" screens? Can the teaser phenomenon be eliminated, perhaps by tweaking some settings?

Sounds like the way the internet worked when we all used dialup connections.

Have you cleaned out your browser cache lately?

Try using Ccleaner Slim for that purpose. GEt it from the link below.

Thanks for the suggestion, OtheHill. Will "cleaning out the browser cache" also erase the browsing history?

The default settings do include erasing browser history and cookies but the is a list of items you can pick and choose from.

For instance, the cookie that saves your login here may be useful to you so you exclude that one from erasure.

Just try it out. All the regular helpers here recommend it.
