guys when i download with steam everything normal and speed is great ..but when i download with chrome it's so slow and sometimes it stops downloading even tho everything is fine :(
anyone knows something ? help :'(
the distance to a server has negligible impact on the bandwidth. it does impact ping tho. what probably did happen is that this guy is either downloading from random websites with random ftp servers featuring weak bandwidth and connection or require a signup/payment for faster downloads.
probably because when you download off steam you use their "fast" servers
but when you download on chrome you download from weird websites (probably some porn websites with cheap servers) that might not have such fast servers and they might also be somewhere in the world while steam has several server locations
+1, i remember downloading cracked games from shady websites and they had the basic and fast download options. Fast obviously was only available for premium users but the point is, the basic was locked at a certain speed.
If it's the same in different browsers. It is a problem with the servers you ar downloading from. Nothin g you can do.
However if you are downloading something from a big company on official website. Maybe something strange is going on with your system.
