Browsing with Google Chrome

I make no apology for being a Google fan.  They have their detractors, but the successful usually tends to be mocked and knocked.

There are other browsers available (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera; to name but a few) but to my mind, you can't beat Google Chrome.

  • It loads quickly
  • Each page is independent of the browser as a whole - if one page crashes, it doesn't bring the whole browser down
  • The user interface is clean and simple
  • It is designed to be safe and secure, with automatic updates.  Chrome will display a message before you visit a site that is suspected of containing malware and phishing
  • Extensions are available to make the experience more tailored to your personal use.  Extensions are small programmes which add useful features.
  • The address bar acts in the same way as the Google Search box
  • Google Chrome is totally customisable.

As I write this, I have 8 tabs open, all with different websites including; Facebook, YouTube, BBC News, GMail.

It's a terrific browser, and if you are looking for a change from Microsoft, and want something that doesn't eat into your system memory, then give Google Chrome a go.
