Google chrome is my primary internet browser, it's heavy but excellent!

My experience with Google Chrome is amazing, I'm using this software from the beginning, both on my desktop and mobile phone. This is my default browser now, I'm in love with it because Chrome has everything that I need as a web developer or freelancer. I love its features like an incognito window, extensions, inspect elements, Google Chrome always helped me to boost my work progress.

Pros

Google chrome is well developed especially from a website UI/UX point of view. I build websites for my clients which work perfectly on Google Chrome but clients often complain that the website is not working properly on Safari, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge. This kind of situation reminds me how perfectly google chrome has built. It has a very functional extension system that allows me to install various types of important add-ons which makes my working process much smoother. I love Google Chrome inspect elements feature, it allows me to check a web page code like HTML or CSS even the Console area is very helpful whenever I work with programming languages live, amazing debugging tool. This browser is so cozy to use even functional, it works with other 3rd party software perfectly such as the What's App web.

Cons

This browser is so heavy, it uses a lot of memory of my CPU that often makes my PC slow. A low-configuration computer can't run Google Chrome smoothly. On the other hand, sometimes Google Chrome cache creates a huge problem. Websites appear broken but the technical support team saying that hey your website is okay, please clear your browser cache. But after clearing cache, history, cookies perfectly, still no luck! This is an annoying thing. There is another issue I often face which is chrome crashes, or not open sometimes. I'm clicking Google chrome to open it, but not working, when I check the task manager, It shows me Google chrome is already running.

Reasons for Switching to Google Chrome

I switch Google Chrome browser sometimes just for my work purpose. It is also important to me how effectively other browsers presenting a website.

Preferred Over All Other Browsers

Overall, I cannot speak highly enough of Google Chrome. I only use is as my browser. It's more compatible with many websites I use over Safari, Edge, or Firefox. I will always be a loyal Chrome fan. It also is very easy to bookmark and favorite tabs. In just a few clicks, you can clear cookies/cache/data. I also like that Google Chrome saves my passwords and searches. If you don't currently use Chrome, you are missing out big time!

Pros

I only use Google Chrome for internet searches. I've downloaded the Google Chrome app on my phone and prefer it over Safari for its speed and ease of search. As a teacher, I've uninstalled Firefox and Edge off of each of my students' computers, Chromebooks, and iPads, and have downloaded Google Chrome on them instead. Chrome works so much better with many Educational games and websites that we use in the classroom. I always tell people, do you have Chrome downloaded? It's the best!

Cons

Absolutely nothing! Google Chrome is my go-to.

Reasons for Choosing Google Chrome

Google Chrome is more customized to my needs. I also love the password saving option.

Reasons for Switching to Google Chrome

Google Chrome is much more compatible with games and websites that I frequently use.

The most consuming web browser on the market

This default web browser by many is good, but there are better ones which have a myriad of better features, which are quite valuable, Chrome is simply a web browser which will search for what you ask for, the other web browsers are trying to add all your daily life in one, what I'm getting at is that they are less cumbersome and better organized, they even contain VPN and Adblocker by default. These are just a few examples of the various features that other browsers are already adding, and which of course are selected for different types of people.

Pros

This web browser designed by Google, is for those who use daily Google products, either Gmail, Drive, YouTube, Google Meet, and endless more that over the years have been adding. This web browser has been practically my search engine for several years and over time they have been improving it, however it is quite simple to use, because with the default Google search engine, we can go to our favorite sites in milliseconds. With this we can also access our bookmarks and favorite sites that over time we will be adding folders of these.

Cons

I have recently changed my web browser to another one, as lately I have been noticing that Chrome has been consuming a lot of space in my RAM, which for normal people, what I am trying to say is that it is overloading my computer and it is something very disappointing as with the amount of people that have this browser, they are not realizing that it consumes a lot towards their computers, but in your case if you have no problem with that, and your daily life is based entirely on Google products, I recommend that you keep using it as it is the only one with which it will satisfy all your needs.

Google Chrome. The ultimate web browser.

I've been using Google Chrome as my primary web browser on both my smartphone and laptop for many years and have so far very good experience using it.

Pros

Google Chrome is undoubtedly the fastest and most popular web browser. You can download and install it in a few clicks and has a very easy and pleasant user interface. Its address bar is integrated with Google search engine which makes web searching easy. Chrome has a huge selection of different extensions which integrates features offered by third party apps in it. It is available on all smartphone and computer platforms. You can easily sync your bookmarks, settings and extensions to your other devices by signing in to it through your gmail Id. You can easily group and separate tabs in it just by dragging them.

Cons

Google Chrome requires relatively larger amount of processing power and RAM memory in comparison to other browsers which is sometimes a problem when using it on a device with low specs. Also there are privacy concerns regarding the data that it collects about its users and their activities.

Reasons for Switching to Google Chrome

I started using Google Chrome after shifting to Android as its default browser and then adopted to use it permanently due to the wonderful experience with it.
