Looking to speed up CRM 2011 Online? Try switching to Chrome…
Does Microsoft CRM 2011 Online feel too slow?
I have a motto here – if we support it – we better use it. As avid users of CRM 2011 Online, we sometimes feel that it is a bit “slower” than we would like. However, Microsoft recently updated CRM 2011 to allow for just about any browser.
I loaded up Chrome today, and all I can say is – wow! It is so much faster than IE10 (and my previous IE9)
On a side note… Do you use Comcast?
Back about 12 months ago, the route between Comcast (Detroit area) and Microsoft servers was severely impacted by a change in routers on Microsoft’s side. It took us working directly with Comcast (who worked directly with Microsoft) over a period of about 3 weeks to get it resolved.
Once “resolved”, we still noticed latency on our side. For example, here is our trace-route between our internet lines, and the Microsoft servers. As you can see, it reaches Comcast fine, but times out along the route twice (the final 2 timeouts are normal, since crm.dynamics.com does not allow for return route tracing).
Is anyone else experiencing this? When I visit a customer site with a normal T-1 or T-3, they have no timeouts along their tracert. And their speed is always impressive. So I do believe that a portion of the issue is with Comcast’s routes to CRM Online.
