Google’s game transforming browser Chrome combines sophisticated technology with a simple UI, to produce a quicker, safer and simpler browsing experience. Google’s fast and constant development cycle ensures the browser continues to compete with all the other complex and most popular web browsers available.
Clean, simple UI
Google Chrome’s a considerable component in its popularity and most striking characteristic - the easy UI hasn’t changed much since the beta launch in 2008. Google focused on trimming down toolbar space that was unneeded to maximise browsing property. The browser is made up of 3 rows of tools, the top layer horizontally piles automatically adjusting tabs, next to a new tabs that are straightforward the regular minimize as well as icon, enlarge & close windows controls. The middle row contains 3 navigation controls (Back, Forward & Stop/Refresh), a URL carton which also enables direct Google web searching and a star bookmarking icon. Extensions and browser settings icons up line to the right of the URL box. The 3rd row consists of installed programs and bookmark folders. Readily overlooked this clean UI was a breath of fresh air in comparison to the overcrowded toolbars of browsers that are popular pre-2008.
Another extremely popular feature, Incognito mode allows you to browse privately by disabling history recording, removing tracking cookies and reducing traceable breadcrumbs. Chrome’s settings also enable you to customize regular browsing privacy preferences.
Chrome’s Sandboxing prevents malware automatically changing other browser tabs or installing on your computer. Chrome also has Safe Browsing technology built in with phishing and malware protection that warns you in case you encounter a website of containing malicious software/activity suspected. Regular automatic updates ensure security attributes are current and effective.
