Have you any idea exactly what is the happening news in Technology this week? It is Google Chrome. It is GOOGLE’s Product! Everything from Google is news. Google decided to launch a new browser to compete with Firefox and Microsoft IE. Wow! It is big! Yes. If it isn’t 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 ascertain if suits me. Read reviews to support my ideas. But most 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 determine if chrome is the best for him.
Why Google started Chrome? – The obvious question. Might be these people were bored creating only applications and wanted to risk it all! However when you ask Google this question, they are saying, “Because we feel we can add value for users and, concurrently, help drive innovation on the web”. Of course Google needs a huge applause for testing out browsers.
Is Google Chrome truly the most wanted browser or is it just a hype? With this you have to know the technical background than just the look and feel of this browser.
Easy Installation Process: I downloaded webclipper chrome and there is absolutely no complications whatsoever. This can be one browser which may be downloaded comfortable 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 all the CPU usage that chrome requires. Unlike other browsers which raises the CPU usage when more Tabs are opened, Chrome uses less space which ought to get credit for.
Fast : Compared to other browsers it is actually fast. But the tech gurus says that it must be much more faster. However for me, I am OK with the rate chrome is giving now. The combined search box and the URL box is absolutely catchy. It is possible to type your searches and also the URL bar pops up with related sites and definitely makes the browsing easy.
Once you open a new tab, chrome pops up together with your recent viewed websites, in a size larger than thumbnail to make it easy for you to visit your normal sites. Though this 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 a good start. Our company is not miles away from OS free system!
These are generally my personal problems with chrome and most of them are functional. But if you wish to find out more technically about Chrome, just check out the tech guru’s review about Google Chrome.
Unlike other browsers, when you close the browser, it doesn’t find out if it could close all 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 not happy with Chrome’s. More importance is given to Google Bookmark (So Obvious!) but what goes on towards the previously bookmarked sites with other applications?
Find feature: The CTRL F is not very efficient as in other browsers. Often it misses to find! Security: More private information is kept in chrome which can be a security alarm problem. There are more problems that were found and workaround already are provided. Just take a look at Google’s help page.
It really is challenging for Google to help make people download chrome and use them. A lot of people already are comfortable using IE and FireFox and it also would take a good deal to allow them to switch to something totally new. Google has to put forth more simple and luring features to help make people believe that Chrome is the greatest!
