Many of the factors that influence your Jackrabbit experience are not related to Jackrabbit itself. Speed and usage are impacted by many factors including (but not limited to) internet connection, age of your computer, and the number of applications currently running on your computer.
Check out our suggestions below to help you keep Jackrabbit running its best.
Update your Internet Browser
Since all browsers do not follow the same web standards, any website can look slightly different from browser to browser. Use the most recent version of your browser to ensure the best experience with Jackrabbit. Our suggested internet web browsers include Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari.

Clear Your Browser Cache
You can fix many browser problems by clearing your browser cache. Make it a habit to clear your browser cache to improve performance of Jackrabbit and other websites.

Understand Internet Cookies
For example, when you go to List All Families, scroll down, and choose a family. When you Return, Jackrabbit remembers where you were rather than taking you to the top of the list.
Use Anti-Virus Software & MalWare Software
While Jackrabbit guards against them impacting your data, viruses and malware on your own computer can affect speed and performance. If you use an anti-virus or malware software, set it up to automatically update and scan your computer on a regular basis.
Maintain your Equipment
Older computers do not perform as well as newer ones. If your computer is more than 3-5 years old and hasn't had any upgrades, it may be time to invest in a newer model.
Earlier versions of Windows, such as Windows XP, are no longer supported. Regularly download and install Windows updates or set Windows to download and install them automatically. For more information on Windows updates, click here.
