If you use an apple device or the iOS operating system, the basic assumption is that the default browser for you to use should be the Safari browser which is okay. I’m not hating on the browser per say but trust me when I say the Safari is not always the best browser. There are a lot of decent browsers you could use for Apple but among those decent ones, there is one that stands out. It’s called Google Chrome, Google’s flagship browser and here is why it is the best browser you could use with your Apple device.
Open Unlimited Tabs
I’m typing this article on Google Docs and as my usual style, I have 10 about 12 other tabs open. It’s human culture, you can’t blame me. If you are that person who loves apple and possess strange browsing behavior such as having 20 tabs open at once, then you might need to use Google Chrome on your device instead of Safari as it allows you to have an unlimited number of tabs open. You might ask how unlimited is unlimited? Well, to see that, just download Google Chrome from the Apple store and see for yourself what I mean.
Switching Between tabs is not a hassle IN Google Chrome
One thing I hate about the Safari browser on the iPad is that it makes switching between different tabs such a hassle. To be honest, it’s annoying. Well, with Chrome, the story is different. The developers behind the browser invested resources into understanding user behavior and from those insights, they figured out that one thing many people love to do when browsing the internet is gathering data and keeping it in different tabs and later on move from tab to tab ingesting the data while opening more tabs. With a single tap on your screen with Google Chrome, you can easily switch your browser.
Use the Omnibox for both Surfing and Searching
Yeah, one other cool feature of Google Chrome that makes it way better than the Safari browser. The Chrome browser allows you to both surf and search using the omni box, something you can’t do with Safari. There is nothing as annoying as writing a 5 word key phrase only to later realize that you wrote in the wrong box and you have to go through the process again. It’s annoying and counterproductive. That’s why you sometimes need the simplicity offered by Chrome to input and write your Addresses.
If you have an Android sidekick you use to the Apple device, then you should discard the Safari and use Google Chrome. Why? Google Chrome can be downloaded on the Apple store but you can’t find the Safari browser on the Google Playstore. Bad enough? Wait a bit. Also, to use Safari, you must have an iCloud account and Apple allows you to sync your data only across their devices. This means if you are to switch from an apple device to something like Android, you will automatically use your bookmarks and other important stuff. This data loss can be avoided by using Google Chrome as it allows you to sync and keep all your data across devices something that will definitely prove helpful to you.
Yes, you always don’t have to worry yourself with having to delete your browser history, cookies and bookmarks every time when you could just switch on incognito mode and surf the internet privately. Google Chrome for Apple has the incognito mode feature to allow you to privately surf the web. In addition to the incognito mode, you can also opt to add a VPN plug to make all your internet activity anonymous so that spies and the (‘FBI’) will not be able to see what you were doing on the web. A little privacy at times doesn’t kill.
Yes, you can also use voice search on Safari but voice search with Chrome is cooler and you won’t ever be asked to repeat yourself or given wrong search results. There are times when you’ll be cooking in the kitchen using your hands, this feature will be really beneficial to you. With safari, you have to first click the microphone before making your search inquiry, something that can make life complicated for you.
Easily Get access to your most visited websites
Google has been integrating Artificial intelligence into all their apps to improve usability and user experience. If you visit some websites frequently, Chrome will help you the next time you want to visit such a site by putting it on the welcome tab of your Chrome front page. We could classify this front page as a speed dial that makes it easy for you to access your most visited Websites with much ease.
Yes, Google Chrome comes with a keyboard and it’s just amazing to say the least. The keyboard has a layout that is similar to the android keyboard which means you are able to do touch typing, swipe, get word suggestions and most importantly, you can quickly access important keys like full stops, commas in a much easier way.
If you don’t like to have to type out your passwords every time you want to log in to a site, then you can use Google’s password saver to your full advantage. What Google Chrome does is that every time you log in to your account, it takes note of your log in details and saves them using the password manager. The next time when you try to log in to the site, autofill will automatically fill in the log in details for you and you can just press enter and immediately log in to the site.
Lastly, it’s okay to not use Safari with your Apple device particularly if it’s not helping you achieve anything meaningful. Switch to Google Chrome.
