Windows 7: Google Chrome with Ready Boost

Windows 7 64 bit
Google Chrome with Ready Boost

Ok so I may be way off but Im going to throw it out there. Is there a way to dedicate REadyboost or a flash drive in general to a multi-process browser like Google chrome. Is it possible, and would it make any bit of differance. I did some google searching and found nothing. I have 8gigs of DDr3 ram but my web browsing just isnt zippy enough. Chrome is faster than IE 8, and I will be happy when IE9 is done beta testing. But untill then, any ideas? (P.S) Sometimes I have up to 12 tabs open

If you'd ever run a portable browser from a flash drive you would realize how slow it is compared to your 8Gb of ram.
I doubt that you could do it & if you could it would slow your browser down.

Many Internet providers are slow at serving pages but you do not have to use their DNS servers.
I use the Secure DNS servers
Both OpenDNS | Internet Navigation And Security & Google Public DNS are good.
