What do you like best?

What I like the most about this fascinating search engine is The elegant Google design that it has which attracts many customers is also extremely easy to use on the other hand, it has extensive data. It is fast to start compared to other browsers. Google Chrome is actually a very excellent browser because its interface is very easy and simple to understand and its voice search application is excellent and it works excellently on PC and mobile devices. Google Chrome updates itself based on the latest security implementations, making it highly secure. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I don't like about this browser is the high level of memory and CPU consumption for one system compared to other browsers. This makes the memory load quite a large additional load which creates random system access. Another quality that I do not like is the existence of the problem related to the privacy of user data, since Google Chrome has been fined several times by several countries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The product is excellent, it is an excellent search engine, but in my recommendations for the product there would be an improvement in terms of the ability to cover the memory of the pc, among other recommendations, it is to make more continuous updates of the product Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Chrome is an excellent browser when searching for anything we need to know. It is fast, robust and very easy to use.

What do you like best?

I really like the keyboard shortcuts it offers. I use so many shortcuts while using the browser and the add ons I can add to facilitate the small tasks in my daily working. Also the Sync feature which synchronizes all the extensions as well the bookmarks and my passwords securely if I login to the browser with my Google account. There are extensions available for almost everything I need I have been using these extensions and this browser from so many years but still I find this is the easiest browser to use in daily life. It is very smart browser that understands the needs of its users and act pro actively and they invite suggestions as well from the users of the applications that which features they need so that they can work on them if required by a large audience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a very good browser but everything comes at a cost as we all know. By using this browser some of the information is used by the third parties in form of cookies even if I am browsing them in the Incognito tabs. This is the only thing I dislike in this browser. Also One more thing I dislike in this browser is the RAM it consumes everytime I start using the application my laptop freezes if I open more than 15 tabs at a point of time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would surely recommend Chrome to others as I am really satisfied by this browser. Its a complete package. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do not have to remember my passwords on different websites or applications. It also helps me shift from working on my phone to working on the same link in my computer. This browser is again a widely used one so I can find this browser everywhere I know. Using some of the features of this browser I can simplify a lot of tasks in my daily life.

It is completely customizable so I can add features that are useful for me and remove featues that I do not use in the browser. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is fast, agile, simple, and basic. It can easily be customized according to the taste of the user. There are many extensions that serve to enhance the work of the user with various features. The software has a sync function that shapes the system in a convenient way for the user. Incognito mode is quite secure. it has a great interface that I feel so comfortable while using it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The most heartbreaking part of the software that the users usually talking about it is the space the software covers in the memory of the computer. This reason sometimes leads to the situation that I am being unable to use the software and the computer can not work with other apps either. This means, in order to use the software in the smoothest way the user should buy an expensive computer or phone that the memory could be enough for extensive use. I have some concerns about the privacy of Chrome that is quite worrying Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take into account that you should have a computer with 8 RAM that you can use the software in a comfortable way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I provide my access to the internet and the platforms through Chrome. Here I do some international negotiations about our services and its sales possibilities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like how simple and neat it is to use Google Chrome, compared to other web browsers such as the one with the fox and the windows in built. Also, the enormous amount of extensions is a very positive point (they range from email tools to website block, add block, grammar check). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As many of you might already know, it uses a lot of RAM memory, so you need to be careful, especially if you use the browser at the same time as running heavy applications, such as games and engineering software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make use of the inter-device and inter-platform integration of the browser. Also, make sure you install useful extensions that will help your navigation become more focused and efficient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Google Chrome is now the most popular web browser in the world. Of course it is from Google. Best thing about it is that things which do not work on Internet Explorer work in Google Chrome. Chrome auto configures everything for us starting from the tile of Google apps that we are logged into, incognito mode, a built in task manager and sometimes I noticed that download speeds are better in Chrome as compared to Internet explorer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Add-ins support is not available in Chrome. Moreover there is a version of Google Chrome called Chromium which gets auto installed and automatically pops up during each restart. It might be happening only for me but it seems very irritating. The one thing I dislike the most is that chrome consumes a lot of RAM when opening multiple tabs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is absolutely no other browser other than Google Chrome. You do not even have to download it. Now it comes auto installed on most laptops and desktops. Do not think twice just use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently I am using Google Chrome to solve my day to day problems be it be analysis, opportunities, problem solving, job searching etc. Without a browser like Chrome I would have been in a lot of mess. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Chrome is by far the fastest and most efficient browser out there, not only does it allow you to open multiple tabs and windows at once, but you can also be working on all of them at the same time. Its software is very easy to handle for anyone since it is very easy to learn from scratch. Chrome far surpasses other browsers. And most useful of all is that even if you don't have a very good Internet connection, it still works and gives the user a great experience. In addition it is also quite flexible when it comes to personalizing it to suit everyone Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
