Have you any idea what exactly 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 isn’t for Google, Chrome wouldn’t have had 1% browser share in the first day! When I heard this news, as every curious individual would do, I downloaded Chrome to ascertain if suits me. Read reviews to support my ideas. But the majority 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 perfect for him.
Why Google started Chrome? – The obvious question. Could be they were bored creating only applications and desired to risk it all! However when you ask Google this question, they are saying, “Because we feel we are able to add value for users and, at the same time, help drive innovation on the web”. Of course Google deserves a huge applause for checking out browsers.
Is Google Chrome actually the most wanted browser or possibly is it simply a hype? For this you must know the technical background than merely the feel and look of this browser.
Easy Installation Process: I downloaded top best chrome extensions and there is not any complications in any way. This is one browser which may be downloaded at ease and you do not require any technical knowledge to download.
Less CPU usage : I checked with my task manager and that i am really impressed with all 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 given credit for.
Fast : In comparison to other browsers it is fast. However the tech gurus says that it needs to be a lot more faster. However for me, I am OK with the pace chrome is giving now. The combined search box and also the URL box is really catchy. You are able to type your searches as well as the URL bar comes up with related sites and definitely makes the browsing easy.
When you open a whole new tab, chrome comes up with your recent viewed websites, in a size larger than thumbnail to make it easy for you to visit your regular sites. Though this is a good feature, often it 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 really a good start. Our company is not miles away from OS free system!
They are my own problems with chrome and many of them are functional. But in order to know more technically about Chrome, just browse the tech guru’s review about Google Chrome.
Unlike other browsers, once you close the browser, it doesn’t find out if it could close each of the tabs. Sometimes I lose my work for this reason. Bookmark facilities: May be because I am just so employed to IE and FireFox bookmarking facilities, I am just unhappy with Chrome’s. More importance is provided to Google Bookmark (So Obvious!) but what will happen for the previously bookmarked sites with other applications?
Find feature: The CTRL F will not be very efficient like other browsers. It sometimes misses to find! Security: More personal data is saved in chrome which might be a security problem. There are many problems that were found and workaround already are provided. Just check out Google’s help page.
It is really hard for Google to help make people download chrome and use them. A lot of people happen to be comfortable using IE and FireFox and it also would take a good deal to allow them to switch to something new. Google must put forth more easy and luring features to create people believe that Chrome is the best!
