Google Chrome review
Google Chrome is a free browser that provides you with a great speed, stability, and security. Since the 2008 release, it has steadily gained popularity and eventually got to the point where it has acquired the largest share of global internet usage. Google Chrome upholds its creator’s reputation of innovation and industry dominance. It’s improved on the competitors’ methods and become the standard to which other browsers aspire.
Chrome is ubiquitous for a good reason. It delivers a robust feature set, a thriving extension ecosystem, full Google Account integration, and a reliable suite of mobile apps. That’s why Google Chrome is the new gold standard for web browsers.Read More
Using your Google account, you can sync your browser preferences, extensions, and bookmarks so that they are available on any device once you sign in. In particular, it can be advantageous for households with a single computer with each member having own account.
Chrome’s tabbed browsing is another thing it excels at. You can rearrange, duplicate and drag tabs to open new windows with just a single click. Each tab functions independently, which means if one tab crashes, the others won’t be affected.
If you open a tab from an existing one, the new tab is placed next to the parental one, rather than at the end of the list. This makes it easier to keep related tabs grouped together. Chrome isn't married to the tab, though. If you want to open a page in a window instead of a tab, you just need to drag the tab down.
Another notable feature of Chrome is its incognito mode, which offers privacy browsing. As you navigate web pages in this mode, you can’t be tracked. The browser also deletes cookies and passwords from that session, once the incognito mode is closed. You can open Google Chrome in normal mode and incognito mode simultaneously.
Google haven’t chosen to build its browser for function over form — Google Chrome succeeds in both. The interface is clean, intuitive and well-organized, and it manages a high level of simplicity. All the features are clearly designed for efficiency and ease of use.
You can navigate and search from the same box. The home page shows a thumbnail history of recent websites you've visited and a history search box.
Plus, the browser allows you to create shortcuts to web applications you regularly use, which can be placed on your desktop for quick and easy access.
Google has made Chrome browser incredibly compatible with the internet. It was specifically designed to load quickly and efficiently, and interact with the vast array of apps on the web, boasting a built-in Flash and PDF-reader.
With the omnibox feature, you can type both search queries and URLs in the address bar. Chrome auto-suggests websites as you type.
Google Chrome keeps you safe and secure on the web with built-in malware and phishing protection as well as updates to make sure you’ve got all the latest security fixes. When you open a website suspected of phishing or containing malware, Chrome displays a warning. It also has auto updates that ensure your security features stay current.
Furthermore, Chrome employs the sandboxing method that helps block malware and isolates one tab from the others. It means that once you close a tab, the process is completely terminated. It’s an effective method for preventing malware from monitoring your online activities and stealing personal information.
