Fasten up Firefox and Chrome loading

The latest iteration of Google Chrome and Firefox were taking a pretty long time to load after clicking on their respective icons. They were replete with frequent crashes. Then I found this solution -

In Firefox, uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available" in Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> General

In Google Chrome, enable "Override software rendering list" by entering "about:flags" in the omnibox
