You you want to know what the World’s best browser is? Yes, you guessed right, Google Chrome. Want to know why? Read on.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication it is said. One thing I love about Google Chrome that makes me classify it as the world’s best browser is its simplicity. The user interface of Google Chrome is simple to understand and navigate which is an ideal plus for an average user who doesn’t understand and know much about tech. This clean and minimalist design overally means that everything will be simpler enabling you navigate and search the web with ease. Besides that, Google Chrome is open source, free. This is not the default case with all other browsers which makes you pay for using them via ads.
This is one feature of Chrome that always fascinates me. The browser will always perform at its best regardless of the PC you will use it from. What this means is that regardless of the specs of the PC you use, Google Chrome will never at any point let you down. There are those websites whose pages are classified as heavy because they will be littered with a lot of graphics and such features, Google chrome will open such sites at a blink. User experience is very important and if you want to have a flawless internet browsing experience, then using Google Chrome will really prove worthy.
This is one other amazing thing about Google Chrome. It is very secure. Google has some of the best tech talent in the world responsible for ensuring that their vast internet ecosystem is always as secure as it can be. Occasionally, if you are a regular chrome user, you notice that the browser receives regular frequent patches to keep it up to date with the best security standards to make it secure against many vulnerabilities. Using a secure browser is important because the browser is the first point of contact between your PC and the internet which makes it a key target for hackers or any other individuals who might have bad intentions for your PC. Besides that, the added layer of security offered by Chrome is mining protection. I’m sure you’ve heard of bitcoin. Well, bitcoin miners are hacking PC’s through the browsers to use your processing power for mining bitcoin. This activity impacts your computer’s performance.
4. Vast Webstore
Chrome is not just a browser, there are a lot of useful plugins that amount to hundreds of thousands you can install as add-ons to your browser to improve your user experience. If you want to use Chrome to manage a Facebook page for example, there is an add-on that you could download that does exactly that. Also, all of Google’s services like Google Docs, Gmail, etc can also be added on to Chrome as plug-ins. And if you are a developer, launching your first app on Google Chrome will be advantageous as compared to going the Appstore route. There are currently over 1 billion apps on the Playstore which is why I am saying so.
5. Platform Independent
To use browsers like internet explorer, you should have a windows machine. Yes, that’s unfair and Chrome understands that. The browser was developed to be inclusive of all operating systems. You can use Chrome on Mac, Windows, and Linux. Besides the PC operating systems, you can also use Chrome on Smartphones including Apple and Android based smartphones. The reason Google designed Chrome to be everywhere is that it is loved.
Google Chrome controls 60% of the internet browsers market share. Yes, 60% which means all the other 100 browsers compete for the remaining 40%. They compete for the breadcrumbs. Normally, when a single product controls such a large piece of the pie, it’s because of two reasons, either the marketing department of the company is superb or the product is genuine and excellent. With Chrome, I’d opt for the former. Google Chrome is a browsing machine.
7. Quick Updates
Compatibility is important considering that technology keeps evolving on a daily basis. To keep the browser as compatible as possible with the increasing information and evolving technological trends, the creators behind Google Chrome roll out updates before everyone else gets time to catch up. These updates give Chrome users a free ticket as they will always be able to keep browsing the Web facing no disruptions.
I mentioned this point above but I will delve deeper into it. One of the first browsers to ever support extensions was Google Chrome. When this feature was rolled out, only the developers where allowed to create these extensions. Later on, the platform was opened to the entire community of developers and they followed suite. This improved the usability of the browser as these extensions did a lot to aid how the browser functioned.
9. Save time
Most browsers will require you to reboot your system when you install a new extension or add on. Imagine you are working on a project whose deadline is approaching and you have to reboot your whole system just because you had to install an add-on. It’s annoying, right? Well with Chrome, once you install an extension, you will start using it without having to complicate things by rebooting your browser or anything of that sort.
In conclusion, another great thing about Chrome is that you will never lose your information unless you do it. This is because Chrome gives you an option to sign in using your Google password. Once you do that, your bookmarks and history will be synced across all your devices so you can access them whenever you feel like. This means you can also remotely delete your PC browser history from your phone 😉
