Google Chrome Browser - Simply the Best

I ordinarily use Google Chrome mainly for surfing the web as It's super fast and easy to navigate. It's wide array of extensions makes it so much easier to work with and complete my online activities faster and more efficiently. It's Password and Form autofill features come in handy as I don't have to remember all the details while submitting online applications.

PROS

Chrome is pretty famous for being the most used Browser Software in the world. The power of Google Chrome knows no bounds and It's feature rich interface makes it one of the best and most efficient browsers in the Software Market. It's very easy to use, looks amazing and captivating, has a huge library of extensions and integrates well with my applications. Google Chrome just works with almost any Operating System, from Windows 7 all the way to Windows 10, Apple Macintosh OS X and later, Linux based Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora and all the rest, Chrome even runs smoothly on Android and iOS Phones and Tablets.

CONS

The downside to using Google Chrome is the memory usage. Each time I open multiple tabs and windows, my Computer starts lagging and any open software freezes and stops responding. It ends up using so much RAM which in turns makes my Computer unresponsive till it crashes. Google Chrome also tends to drain my PC and Phone's batteries faster than any other installed software and application. And last but certainly not least, Google Chrome Isn't so keen on privacy as compared to other Browsers like Microsoft Edge and it also doesn't have a dedicated reading mode as with the other browsers in the marketplace.

Reasons for switching to Google Chrome

Chrome is 100x better than Mozilla Firefox in terms of Speed, User Interface, extension access, efficiency and Operating System Integration.

The fastest browser with awesome features

Google Chrome is one of the fastest browsers out there and loaded with many great features. Being able to sync across several platforms and ability to customize the browser using free extensions make the browser more likeable. And if you are a web developer, this is the best option for you. Increased support for other google products as Gmail and google drive is something I adore about google chrome.

PROS

A well built browser with many great features to help the users. And with the support of Chrome web store, users can customize the browser for optimum conditions. Also most of the websites are supportive for Google Chrome unlike Firefox and Opera. What I love most is the support given for other Google products such as Gmail, google drive or YouTube from this browser. And synchronization given across many platforms like Windows, Linux and android is highly appreciated. Being able to customize as likely using free extensions and built-in services such as google translator makes Google Chrome very user friendly.

CONS

The excessive RAM usage by the google chrome has been a issue for many years. Therefore the browser reduces overall performance while browsing web. And using browsing data for commercial purpose is a feature I found annoying. Also faced some cache errors while using websites such as mega.nz which was upsetting.

Reasons for switching to Google Chrome

Firefox was slower and unsupportive of some website and on the other hand Google Chrome was lightning fast and supported almost all the websites I visited. Extended support from many free extensions is another reason I choose to switch from Firefox to Google Chrome.

Google Chrome Does it All!

PROS

This browser has been truly a life-saver for myself and for many others in our district. I absolutely love the way tabs can be managed and moved in the browser. It helps me prioritize certain windows and customize my browser experience.

CONS

There have been times when the Google Chrome browser has been updated and wants to relaunch. The pop-up window will say that your tabs will reopen, but sometimes they don't. Most of the time they do, but there have been times I have had to report it as an issue. Otherwise, everything else has been great.

Chrome once again loses my bookmarks

Bookmark are present and then on any given day they disappear without explanation.

PROS

There is nothing to like about an inconsistent application which is constantly changing its look and feel for the purpose of making a POS application developer feel like he has created something!

CONS

Constantly loses my bookmarks stored on the front page of the application when it opens. Another example of an unimportant programmer writing update code and putting their TWO cents of "personalized" touch. Too bad they are paid more than TWO cents!

Reasons for switching to Google Chrome

Because a site I went to no longer allowed Firefox.
