Google Chrome Review

Fernando Ortega

A pretty fast web browser developed open source by Google


A review of Google Chrome by Fernando Ortega

There are currently three leading browsers on the market and today, Google Chrome seems to be topping the charts thanks to the aggressive advertising campaign that was launched several years ago promoting Google's web browser.

Microsoft Internet Explorer used to be the king of the castle, slowing being overtaken by Firefox in many countries around the globe and from nowhere, Google Chrome started picking up market share. Its growth has not been without controversy and increasing awareness of privacy issues with Google's browser have hampered its growth.

With that said, Google Chrome is a fast web browser with a very minimalist interface. Many believe that it is the fastest browser on the market, but Firefox fans may disagree and even today's revamped Internet Explorer remains contender.

The technology behind Google Chrome is from the open source project called "Chromium" which has also facilitated the creation of derivative browsers such as SRWare Iron, Comodo Dragon and even Opera's new-generation browser is based off of Chromium.

The market for such browsers is mixed and many die-hard Firefox fans refuse to abandon ship from an open source community-based browser (from Mozilla) to a corporately-managed product like Google Chrome.

The Chrome experience is finely tuned to work in unison with Google-owned properties and especially Google's own search engine. In fact, their search engine still advertises Google Chrome to users searching from rival browsers like Firefox and Internet Explorer.

In the end, Google Chrome is not for everybody and its minimalist interface may take some getting used to. On the other hand, it's great for heavy Google users that wish to synchronize their Google experience across multiple devices such as desktops, notebooks and mobile phones powered by Android.

Google Chrome features and highlights:
  • Access bookmarks and apps from any computer
  • Synchronize data by choice
  • Personalized your experience
  • Supports themes and skins
  • Avoid complicated software installations
  • Provides access to thousands of extensions
  • Restore previous session and continue where you left off
  • Synchronize bookmarks across devices
