Have you any idea what is the happening news in Technology this week? It is Google Chrome. It is GOOGLE’s Product! Anything from Google is news. Google decided to launch a new web browser to compete with Firefox and Microsoft IE. Wow! It is big! Yes. If it is not for Google, Chrome would not have had 1% browser share in the very first day! When I heard this news, as every curious individual would do, I downloaded Chrome to check if suits me. Read reviews to support my ideas. But many of them were highly technical which lead me to test myself and come out with something a lay man would fully grasp and help him decide if chrome is right for him.
Why Google started Chrome? – The obvious question. Might be these were bored creating only applications and wished to risk it all! However when you ask Google this inquiry, they say, “Because we believe we could add value for users and, concurrently, help drive innovation on the web”. Needless to say Google deserves a huge applause for testing out browsers.
Is Google Chrome actually the most wanted browser or possibly is it merely a hype? For this you have to know the technical background than merely the feel and look of this browser.
Easy Installation Process: I downloaded best google chrome extensions for productivity and there is not any complications at all. This really is one browser which may be downloaded comfortable and you may not require any technical knowledge to download.
Less CPU usage : I checked with my task manager and I am really impressed with all the CPU usage that chrome requires. Unlike other browsers which increases the CPU usage when more Tabs are opened, Chrome uses less space that ought to be provided credit for.
Fast : Compared to other browsers it is fast. Nevertheless the tech gurus says that it must be much more faster. But for me, I am Comfortable with the rate chrome is giving now. The combined search box as well as the URL box is absolutely catchy. You can type your searches and the URL bar arises with related sites and definitely makes the browsing easy.
Once you open a brand new tab, chrome comes up along with your recent viewed websites, in a size bigger than thumbnail to make it easy for you to see your regular sites. Though it really is a good feature, often it does intimidate you. But, who lbxidt say a ‘No’ to see your favourite sites just with 1 click. Chrome uses a platform to operate the browser which minimises the necessity of OS. This is really an excellent start. We are not far away from OS free system!
These are my own issues with chrome and many of them are functional. But in order to find out more technically about Chrome, just check out the tech guru’s review about Google Chrome.
Unlike other browsers, once you close the browser, it doesn’t find out if it can close all of the tabs. Sometimes I lose my work due to this. Bookmark facilities: May be because I am so used to IE and FireFox bookmarking facilities, I am just not happy with Chrome’s. More importance is given to Google Bookmark (So Obvious!) but what happens to the previously bookmarked sites along with other applications?
Find feature: The CTRL F is not very efficient as in other browsers. It sometimes misses to find! Security: More private information is stored in chrome which might be a security alarm problem. There are more conditions that were found and workaround are already provided. Just have a look at Google’s help page.
It is really hard for Google to help make people download chrome and utilize them. The majority of people already are comfortable using IE and FireFox and it also would take a good deal for them to alteration to new things. Google needs to put forth more simple and easy , luring features to help make people think that Chrome is the greatest!
