    Would be grateful for some help, there is a way to speed up Chrome, by deleting or moving the preferences file. It is supposed to be in

    Users/[Your Username]/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/

    But search doesn't find it, and after my username there is only the normal folders and no Library.

    Any ideas?

    Your Library folders are hidden by default in Lion. To get to your /Library or /Users/yourusername/Library (also known as the ~/Library) folders in Lion:
    • Launch Finder and click Go > Go to Folder and type: /Library or ~/Library
    • Hold the Option key while clicking the Go menu item, which reveals your ~/Library folder in the menu.
    • Make it permanently visible by entering the following command in Terminal, then press the Enter key:
      chflags nohidden ~/Library​
    • 18 ways to view the ~/Library folder in Lion
