Web browsing on the raspberry pi 3 has become rather dreadful with a later version of raspbian. I am running raspbian on a Samsung EVO+ (which is supposedly faster than most SD cards..). I don't remember it being this bad before.. perhaps the complexity of websites have increased lately, or chromium has just become more heavy. It seems to be that the slowness isn't due to the CPU, but mostly from disk access which is the biggest bottleneck on any raspberry pi.
Most of the answers I've seen on this site are for older versions of raspbian which had midori or other web browsers. The latest raspbian has switched to chromium however.
Are there any things I can do to improve web browsing performance? Does it make sense to switch to another web browser?
