Google Chrome is the most popular web browser in the world. Its source code is proprietary, but it is based on the open-source Chromium browser. Chrome integrates with other Google applications, such as Gmail, Google Analytics, Search Console, and Google Docs. When you log in to the browser, you are automatically logged in to all these other Google’s web apps. It also features a huge extension store.
A lot of people like Chrome’s minimalist interface. But on the other hand, even with extensions, you can’t customize it as freely as Firefox. There is also a concern that Google tracks Chrome’s users. Privacy researchers identified that the browser extensively communicates with Google even when all privacy-invasive options are switched off. And the European Union fined the corporation for billions of dollars over its mishandling of users’ data.
The other problem with the browser is that it can be demanding on your computer’s resources. Nevertheless, Google Chrome is usually the first to support new web technologies, and being the most widely used, it is the most widely supported browser on the internet as well.
