Here are some important tips you should always keep in mind

1.    Isolated Tabs

The downloaded profile which you have chosen will work on the tab which you have used for. You can’t move the download limit to another tab which is already opened. Every tab which is isolated is known as isolated tabs. You have to enter download speed of each tab manually before downloading anything from the Google Chrome browser.

2.    Don’t Stop DevTools

You need to wait until the download finish before going to the DevTools panel. In case you complete this procedure while the procedure is going on, then Google Chrome returns to its default settings.

You have to start activating a profile before you begin the downloading process. In case you have already started the downloading process, then you should not suppose to change a profile.

3.    Don’t Set a Default Profile

In case you have set more than two profiles, then do not return to the original profile settings of Google Chrome. Change among the profiles which you have to generate to ensure that the download speed is always there where you wish to place it. In case you want to change to the original profile settings, then the download speeds return to its normal one, and you are not able to perform anything until the procedure gets completed.

4.    Video Streaming

In case you wish to start streaming the videos by limiting the download speed, ensure that you have entered the right profile before you begin the streaming process. Those videos of which you cannot change the size will not work well with slow download speed.
