    I'm wondering if the search feature of Google Now is slow just on my phone or on the Razrs in general? Mine is painfully slow. I search inside the browser now because sometimes it takes over a minute for it show results. I turned off hot word, but that only helps it load faster.

    Yeah, I have been having the same problem. I've cleared cache several times thinking that would help. Unfortunately not. In addition, Chrome has been painfully slow as well, on the order of a minute or more to load pages. Either that or it will time out. Happens on both WiFi as well as mobile data.

    Chrome was slow for a while for me, but seems to be working better since the last update, enough for me to be willing to switch back from dolphin. I've only been using it for a few days, though.

    Both Google Now searches and Chrome seem to be pretty speedy to me. I was just using Chrome and I tried a couple of searched on Now and they seemed just fine.

    I'm not having any issues with Google. Mine works fast.
    Everything on my phone seems to have been improved when I updated to Jelly Bean.
    (I did the things I was supposed to do after the up-date...)
    When I re-upped my apps, I installed the up-to-date versions.
    Seems some folks used the old apps and aren't getting as good a result. (or so I have heard...)

    Ditto on slow Google Now w/Razr Maxx

    Yep, slow, :30 to :60 to load results. Chrome, stock browser ditto. Don't have as much of a lag on my Nexus 7.

    Been messing around with it lately and it seems removing updates to both chrome and google search speeds it up pretty nice. Hopefully google's next updates will be faster and not slower.

    Count me in. Right after JB update, Google search slowed to a crawl. And tapping it 2 or 3 times sure doesn't speed it up! Really annoying >:-(

    There was actually an article on Android Police earlier this morning about this. Tip: Google Searches Taking Forever On Android? Here's How To Fix It

    Go into Google Now > Settings > Phone Search and uncheck all options. Next, go into your Settings to Apps > All > Search Applications Provider. Disable the app.

    Seemed to speed things up for me.

    New update today. Speedy!! Very happy. I had rolled back all updates to get a decent search speed, but with this update it's faster than ever. I'm still waiting for a performance enhancement for chrome, but until then I'm satisfied with the stock browser.

    Are you on stock or another rom? Curious because I can't disable the Search Applications Provider, disable is greyed out.

    Search applications provider is not greyed out for me, and i am running stock. I had seen in another forum the same issue I had been having, where the first time you search for something, it took forever, but after that, the search results came fairly quickly. My fix was to uninstall updates to google search. However, with the most recent update, search is now faster than ever. Seems like everything is fixed.

    Well then I have no clue what's going on. Here's what I see when I go to that app.

    Other than a factory reset, I don't know what would fix that. You should have the option to disable.
