I had been using Google Chrome for a very long time ago and until today, I still cannot find a reason for me to make a switch. I didn’t mean other browsers are lousy, don’t get me wrong here. Other browsers are awesome as well but Google Chrome is not something replaceable to me.
I’m not going to blog how awesome it is in this post because it is going to take thousands of words to just talk about its awesomeness. I just want to highlight two things here which are Speed and Security.
The Chrome’s Lightning Speed
One thing I want to highlight here. The Chrome’s lightning speed which I am referring to is not the internet browsing speed. If I say it boosts your internet browsing speed by 70%-80%, I’m sure many tech readers here gonna shoot me hard.
It is only the start up is fast, but good enough. Personally, I feel annoyed when the web browser start up slowly. It’s like after I open the web browser, I have to wait for another 5-10 seconds for the thing to pop up.
IE has the feature to disable all start ups and Firefox has the plugin to boost the speed of the web browser start up. None of those can compare with Google Chrome’s start up at stock settings. Try it and you will believe me.
It Gets More and More Secure
Google Chrome introduced Safe Browsing sometime ago to make the browser strong against cyber crooks. It helps you to identify malicious website and phishing website and it is still working perfectly today. But what about downloads?
Yes, it is now protected (according to Google Chrome Blog). If you happen to download any .exe file or .msi file, the Chrome will help you to check the content of the file and warn you if it happen as well to be malicious.
Let’s all stay secure when browsing the internet and downloading stuff. Identify whether your web browser is doing what Google Chrome is doing especially the security part. If it is better, keep it but if it don’t, think of a switch. 😉
