#1 Close All Pages Except IRCTC Website

First and the most basic thing you have to remember is do not open any website or page while booking IRCTC ticket. Just close all sites like Youtube, Facebook etc. Youtube videos buffer and they slow down internet speed. Cancel all downloading files. Do not download any file from torrent or any other source while booking tickets. Just let the IRCTC's official website open and rest close all other pages.

You might have seen advertisements popping up on your screen while you are surfing internet. These advertisements are shows through javascripts and these javascripts take time to load and slow down opening speed of the site. So blocking these ads will definitely help you to increase speed of your ticket booking.

For blocking the advertisements you can use plugins for the browser. For e.g. here is the link to Google Ad Block extension. After adding this ad block extension to your chrome browser ads will not pop up and will give you increased internet speed for fast ticket booking.
