Google Chrome – The Fast and Secure Web Browser Review
Google Chrome is a browser that enables you to surf the Internet conveniently. There are customization options that you can adjust in the settings for a personalized experience. Beyond the conventional browsing functionality, additional features such as Google Translate give you even more enhanced user experience as you can browse all webpages in the English language. There are other handy features which can be integrated with Google Chrome for better user experience. These require that you sign up for a Google account, which is free, and you will be able to sync data (such as bookmarks and open tabs) across all your devices. The app offers you an incognito browsing mode which enables you to surf the internet with privacy. The browser has a built-in PDF reader that allows you to view PDF documents. Looking at the design, Google Chrome has a clean and logically organized layout. The features are visibly marked, and it is easy to comprehend what each icon represents. Search results are displayed in a well-organized manner, making it easier for you to locate webpages of your interest. Moreover, the toolbar located on the bottom part of the interface auto-hides, letting you focus on page content. The start-up page shows frequently visited websites, which is quite convenient during startup – no need to type the URL of places you go to often. However, there are some usability issues. The ease of getting to bookmarks is questionable as they are in a place that is tedious to access instead of being displayed in a new tab. In addition, the app may be slightly slower compared to other browsers in regards to performance, an issue that varies from device to device. Nonetheless, other core features are simple to access and use. You can switch between tabs with ease by merely touching the tabs icon on the top right corner of the interface.
