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 chose 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 first day! When I heard this news, as every curious individual would do, I downloaded Chrome to see if suits me. Read reviews to support my thoughts. But the majority of them were highly technical which lead me to check myself and come out with something a lay man would fully grasp and help him assess if chrome is perfect for him.
Why Google started Chrome? – The obvious question. May be these people were bored creating only applications and desired to risk everything! However when you ask Google this question, they say, “Because we know we could add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web”. Obviously Google deserves a huge applause for checking out browsers.
Is Google Chrome really the most wanted browser or possibly is it simply a hype? For this particular you must know the technical background than simply the look and feel with this browser.
Easy Installation Process: I downloaded best google chrome extensions and there is no complications whatsoever. This can be one browser which can 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 using the CPU usage that chrome requires. Unlike other browsers which boosts the CPU usage when more Tabs are opened, Chrome uses less space which should be provided credit for.
Fast : When compared with other browsers it is actually fast. However the tech gurus states that it must be even more faster. However for me, I am just OK with the pace chrome is giving now. The combined search box as well as the URL box is really catchy. You are able to type your searches and also the URL bar pops up with related sites and helps make the browsing easy.
Once you open a brand new tab, chrome arises together with your recent viewed websites, in a size greater than thumbnail to make it simple for you to see your regular sites. Though this is a good feature, sometimes it does intimidate you. But, who lbxidt say a ‘No’ to go to your favourite sites just with 1 click. Chrome uses a platform to run the browser which minimises the necessity of OS. This is actually a good beginning. We are not far away from OS free system!
These are generally my own difficulties with chrome and many of them are functional. But if you wish to learn more technically about Chrome, just look into the tech guru’s review about Google Chrome.
Unlike other browsers, once you close the browser, it doesn’t ask if it could close all the tabs. Sometimes I lose my work due to this. Bookmark facilities: Might be because I am just so utilized to IE and FireFox bookmarking facilities, I am unhappy with Chrome’s. More importance is provided to Google Bookmark (So Obvious!) but what will happen towards the previously bookmarked sites with some other applications?
Find feature: The CTRL F is not very efficient as with other browsers. It sometimes misses to find! Security: More personal data is kept in chrome which can be a security alarm problem. There are other problems that were found and workaround already are provided. Just check out Google’s help page.
It is definitely difficult for Google to create people download chrome and use them. Most of the people happen to be comfortable using IE and FireFox plus it would take a good deal so they can change to something totally new. Google must put forth more simple and luring features to create people believe that Chrome is the best!
