Internet Explorer. Safari. Firefox. Familiar names in the Internet world. But next to Internet Explorer, the browser these days with all the traction is from Google. It’s called Chrome and it has been getting so much momentum lately that it is poised to become second in popularity, only behind Internet Explorer.
In just two years, Chrome has gone from zero to over 310 million users and once you try it, you’ll see why.
One of the coolest things it does is bring browser synchronization to all your devices, bringing, bookmarks, apps, history and all your settings to your tablet, laptop and smartphone. If you update something on Chrome on one device, it instantly is updated on your other devices.
It is fast and can be customized by apps, thousands of them, available free, and added to a tab on the browser for instant access. The apps include games, word processing tools even 3d design programs.
The apps are joined by an equally huge library of extensions, sort of mini programs that seamlessly install in seconds and let you access weather, dictionaries, encyclopedias and more from the menubar.
Since Google makes Chrome, it seamlessly integrates with your Gmail, You Tube and other Google tools.
Because of all this, Chrome is on a major roll about ready to edge out Firefox as number two in the Browser world.
I’ve been a Firefox fan for the past couple of years. Chrome has now won me over.
