Have you any idea what is the happening news in Technology this week? It is Google Chrome. It is actually GOOGLE’s Product! Anything from Google is news. Google made a decision to launch a new internet 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 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 thoughts. But most of them were highly technical which lead me to test myself and come out with something a lay man would understand and help him decide if chrome is the best for him.
Why Google started Chrome? – The most obvious question. Might be these were bored creating only applications and wished to risk all of it! But when you ask Google this question, they say, “Because we know we can add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web”. Needless to say Google needs a huge applause for trying out browsers.
Is Google Chrome truly the most wanted browser or possibly is it simply a hype? With this you must know the technical background than just the appear and feel of this browser.
Easy Installation Process: I downloaded best google chrome extensions and there is absolutely no complications whatsoever. This can be one browser which can be downloaded at ease and you do not require any technical knowledge to download.
Less CPU usage : I checked with my task manager and i also am really impressed with the CPU usage that chrome requires. Unlike other browsers which boosts the CPU usage when more Tabs are opened, Chrome uses less space that ought to be given credit for.
Fast : In comparison to other browsers it is actually fast. However the tech gurus says that it needs to be much more faster. But also for me, I am just Comfortable with the pace chrome is giving now. The combined search box and also the URL box is really catchy. It is possible to type your searches as well as the URL bar pops up with related sites and definitely makes the browsing easy.
Whenever you open a new tab, chrome arises along with your recent viewed websites, in a size larger than thumbnail to make it simple for you to see your regular sites. Though this is a good feature, it sometimes does intimidate you. But, who lbxidt say a ‘No’ to visit your favourite sites just with 1 click. Chrome utilizes a platform to run the browser which minimises the need of OS. This is actually a good beginning. Our company is not far from OS free system!
These are my own problems with chrome and the majority of them are functional. But if you want to know more technically about Chrome, just look into the tech guru’s review about Google Chrome.
Unlike other browsers, when you close the browser, it doesn’t find out if it can close each of the tabs. Sometimes I lose my work for this reason. Bookmark facilities: Could be because I am just 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 will happen towards the previously bookmarked sites with other applications?
Find feature: The CTRL F will not be very efficient like other browsers. It sometimes misses to locate! Security: More personal data is saved in chrome which might be a security alarm problem. There are other conditions that were found and workaround already are provided. Just check out Google’s help page.
It is really challenging for Google to make people download chrome and use them. The majority of people are already comfortable using IE and FireFox and it also would take a good deal for them to switch to new things. Google has to put forth more simple and luring features to create people believe that Chrome is the greatest!
