    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?

    /Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist

    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​
