Slow neo4j browser while trying to visualize results

While running the following query:

OPTIONAL MATCH (b:Address)-[:sent_money]->(c:Address)
RETURN b, r, c
LIMIT 3000

The neo4j browser is extremely slow. How can I speed up the visualization?

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

Browser only uses d3 on svg which is not really fast

You can use Neo4j Bloom e.g. via the Sandbox or the Startup Program which uses WebGL

Or have a look at the other tools available like kineviz, yWorks, graphlytic via desktop.
