The much talked about browser by Google has finally been released on 2nd of September. It’s been named Chrome. Like most top browsers it is free to download. So I went ahead and downloaded it.
I am very archaic in the sense that despite being dubbed as “Slow” I am a huge fan of Internet Explorer. However, when the browsing gets tedious and as slow as mule I switch to alternate browser. Since beginning, that is when I started using net about ten years ago, I used to download Netscape browser as well. It was (still is) fast. Years later Firefox was introduced that took the market by storm; I think more than half of America uses it. I have tested Firefox as well. It’s fast no doubt and has beaten Netscape in fast browsing.
“Fastness” is what a user looks for. Chrome has been publicized as fast, easy yet sophisticated to use. After hearing it from a friend and reading about it on the Google website I thought to give it a try. It is very simple to use – has interesting features more or less the same what Netscape, IE and Firefox offers but I like it for its fresh and neat look.
Some people have experienced problems with Chrome. I browsed for an hour and to me it looked absolutely fine and fast. It’s a BETA release which means it has a long way to go but still it seems very useful, workable and quick. I didn’t like one thing though that it saves a complete browsing history… something I don’t prefer. You can delete it but it feels cumbersome.
So now I have five browsers; IE, Netscape, Firefox, Opera and Chrome. Opera is quick too but it can’t display some websites properly. From now on it is either IE or Chrome for me.
