by Abhishek Bhatnagar on June 25, 2010


Some times when you try to open a web page in google chrome and when google chrome tries to load the page it displays the error – Oops This link appears to be broken does not load the page. One day when I saw this error, I tried to load the same web page in Internet Explorer and Firefox it loaded fine without any issues.

Then after some googling I found out that this problem is not due the web page but this is an DNS error – this error generally appears because of the dns caching problem due the default option checked in google chrome.

Google chrome by default use dns pre-fetching which improve the web page load speed slightly if there is some error or problem with the cached data this error may appear.

In order get rid of this error you just need to uncheck the dns pre-fetching option found under google chrome options and the only difference that will take place is that the web pages will load slightly slower, and the time increased will be in microsecond which you wont notice at all.

Follow the procedure below to uncheck this option


1. Open Google Chrome

2. Go to google chrome options as shown in the image below from the top right menu.


3. On the options dialog click the tab Under the Hood


As shown in the image above, uncheck the option which says Use DNS pre-fetching to improve page load performance and then click close button on google chrome options window.
