    I need to surf the web faster than my normal connection. If I ever buy a VPS can I install chrome so that I can surf and download through it?

    You can pretty much do everything that your Pc can do if not more.

    Yes you can, however, keep in mind that this faster speed is only valid while you are working on the VPS.
    This means: When you download a big file via de browser on the VPS to the VPS harddrive, it wil go very fast (1000mbit with good vps)

    However, when you then send the file from your VPS to your HomeComputer, you are limited by the home internet connection (eg 30mbit) and it will not go faster

    So vps download will not speed up your home download. However if you want to upload & download files to websites without getting them at your home, vps will be much faster in this than your home.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I've read in some thread that installing a filezilla server on the VPS and filezilla account on my home computer would do the trick to have a fast file transfer from the VPS to mine. Haven't tried it out but Im looking forward on doing this in the future.
