Google Chrome Reviews
We have 3 reviews for Google Chrome. The average overall ratings is 4.3 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: It is hard to believe that Google Chrome has become the most widely used web browser since it was introduced in 2008. About 66% of computer users around the world prefer Chrome, and the browser also enjoys a 56% market share when one combines all platforms. This means that Chrome is used more often than any other web browser. In almost every part of the world with the exception of some areas in Africa, Chrome dominates the market. One reason that the browser has become so popular is that it is very easy to use. Its layout is clean and organized, making it easy for individuals to find the features they need. It is possible to create bookmarks from the toolbar by using only a single click, and favorite sites can be pinned to the toolbar with ease. The address bar of Chrome serves a dual purpose. It can be used to enter a web address and navigate to a website or it can be used to search Google for a word or phrase. Downloading Chrome also creates a Google account. This makes it possible to set up accounts in Gmail, YouTube, and more. The browser integrates with all of Google's services. Best of all, the use of Chrome syncs across all devices because it is linked to a user's Google account. Bookmarks and other saved items will transfer when the browser is used on PCs, phones, or tablets. Security has always been a priority for the developers of Google Chrome. The company provides multiple updates each month to resolve any security issues that may arise. The browser can integrate with the most popular anti-virus programs through browser extensions. It also offers warnings when visiting sites that have presented known security issues. Users can also opt for private browsing. During these sessions, no browsing data is retained by Chrome. The problems that users indicate include speed. Chrome doesn't seem to be as fast as other web browsers. The other issue is that Google has been known to supply browsing histories to third-party entities. Most troubling of these are government agencies. Users should take the appropriate measures to make sure their browsing data is not made available to prying eyes.
Pros: Easy to use Vast library of useful extensions Built-in security features
Cons: Google can share browsing data Not as fast as some browsers
Overall Opinion: It's a great software, has amazing stability and speed. But it is a little hard on my RAM I think I am going to move to Tor for security reasons but other than that Chrome is great option for people not that concerned about privacy and security.
Cons: RAM usage
Overall Opinion: Although they came out as competition for Mozilla Firefox sometime ago, they've really positioned themselves as market leaders in the browser market. Backed by the Google search engine, chrome provide you with seamless integration with many apps with their market.
Pros: Integrations Flexible API
Cons: Hogs memory Sometimes buggy
