I am curious if it is only me or others have the same problem, Google Chrome which I started using a couple weeks ago is having trouble finding the webpage on first try (9 time out of 10) and I always have to click a second time on the link and it finds it right away, once it finds the page then eveything works great but always on the first try it does not.

I have high speed Internet and even when i start Google Chrome it tells me (Unable to find web page please check your .....) and it does that even for its start page, all my bookmarks and any web page i find in searches.

Is it a bug in the program or a bug in my computer setup.

For those who may have the same issue try this.

Go to Tools > Options (or Preferences on a Mac) > Under the Hood and uncheck the setting that says “Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance.” This might increase the loading time of certain pages by a few microseconds but you won’t at least see that misleading error message.

It fixed my problem.
