The Internet has profoundly and irrevocably changed the way we spend every waking moment of our lives.
Entertainment, news, education – now all of this and much more can be accessed online with little effort and in unlimited quantities. On the Internet, there is never a shortage of funny cat videos to see or inspirational quotes to read. But to actually get to the website of your choice, you need a special program called a “web browser”. There are many web browsers out there, but none of them is quite like Google Chrome.
Every which way you measure it, Google Chrome is the fastest and most stable web browser there is. If you don’t believe the independent tests, feel free to try it out for yourself. Just be warned: once you try it, you will be instantly addicted to its blazing speed and flawless performance and you’ll have difficulties going back to a sluggish browser.
As a matter of fact, almost everyone on the planet is now using Google Chrome. It is mostly popular among those who are using Windows-run computers. But even Mac lovers have found it really efficient and so fast that they use it instead of the default browser Safari.
The Secret of Perfection Is Simplicity
It took a lot of iterations to get Google Chrome to the state where it currently is. Every two months or so a new update is released, so don’t be alarmed if your version reads “35” or “40”. Eventually, the plan of Google engineers is to completely remove the version number, because in today’s fast moving society, it has lost pretty much all meaning.
Once you download, install and run Google Chrome for the first time, you will see a very minimalistic interface. Everything that is intrusive, annoying or distracting you from your browsing experience has been blocked, removed or simplified. In this way, Google Chrome makes its message crystal clear: the user is the king. The impressive level of stability Google Chrome has is achieved through a process called “tab isolation”. Simply put, each of the tabs runs separately and no matter what happens in one tab, the rest of the browser will keep running smoothly. This also assures that no viruses or Trojans can infect the computer through the web browser.
Enhance and Personalize Google Chrome through Web Store
There are new fixes, tweaks and features introduced to Google Chrome on a daily basis. Still, it’s possible to add even more fun stuff to it by visiting a website with free pieces of software called “extensions” and installing them. In this way, your Google Chrome can have entirely new ways to browse or display your favorite content. Some of these extensions are actual video games, which is perfect for kids to have a clean and safe environment to play without adult supervision.
For those who value their privacy, Google Chrome also offers a private browsing mode (called “incognito”) which leaves no traces of websites visited. Google Chrome can synchronize all your bookmarks and settings across devices through a Google account, so you don’t have to set it up every time. All things considered, Google Chrome is a powerful, compact browser with a wide range of functions that can satisfy even the most demanding users.
One of the best features of Chrome is its vast suite of extensions and apps that every user can use. To increase your productivity, you can easily install extensions/apps like Pocket, Notifier, etc. There is an extension for every possible use that you may have. The only thing that you would want to remember is choosing only those that you really need. Otherwise, you might end up having a kilometer-long list of act
