YouTube on Google Chrome Lagging or Slow after v103 Update

In just four years from its 2008 debut, Chrome surpassed all other browsers in popularity. It has since topped the rankings, with a market share of 63.58 percent in the previous year.

Every day, billions of people use it to browse the internet because developers are always trying to add new features or enhance old ones.

However, these regular feature updates may lead to problems like distorted or overexposed colours and M1 Mac users being unable to upload or attach files. However, several Chrome users who upgraded to version 103 are apparently experiencing speed issues with YouTube, particularly when attempting to watch videos on the site.

Some people assumed they were having a problem so they tried emptying their browser's cache and cookies including resetting Chrome's settings, however the problem continues.
