So, if you are still contemplating over using Google Chrome, here are the Top 10 compelling reasons for which you should consider this Lean Browser*-
- It's really fast to download this browser from Google's website (can be done effortlessly even from a dial-up connection!)
- You get to View More of what You Want - Google Chrome has pruned out the unnecessary constituents of a typical browser (that Microsoft defined with its IE)
- Google Chrome consumes lesser system resources...it's really less! (based on my testing on Windows XP)
- Search and Address bar is no more two different things - Google Chrome has just a single place which lets the user to search (with suggestions) and type a website URL. This saves a lot of time! Just imagine (in a typical browser) the time taken in opening a new browser window, getting the search engine (of course its Google!) to load, and typing the search phrase...Phew!
- Saves your energy and unnecessary mouse movement - Even creating bookmarks is simpler...just at the click of a button!
- Lets you convert a new browser tab to a new browser window - You just need to click on the browser tab and pull it away from the browser! (helps in doing a lot of housekeeping with unnecessary tabs open)
- You no more will see a download window coming in between you and the browser (it's so annoying to see this download status window in IE or Firefox!) - When you download something, it gets displayed in the bottom of the browser...how pleasant it is!
- All tabs get displayed as separate resources in the Windows Task Manager - You can now force end a process that just takes off one tab in your Google Chrome browser!
- Using a shared computer? Don't want to let others know what you are browsing after you are done? - Google Chrome offer a privacy mode, aka incognito mode. It prevents the pages you browsed from appearing in the web history!
- Did you always want to use a browser that feels light to both the system and your eyes? - Google Chrome is for You!
