    "Amazing, perfect browser!"

    March 29, 2011  |   By KRiedley

    Pros

    FAST
    Customizable
    App store
    Clean interface
    Completely functional

    Cons

    Ummmm......Hmm.....Ah, wait! No.......hmm....I got nothing.

    Summary

    I've used Chrome since it was first released. I have literally not used Firefox since, and have only used IE a handful of times (because Microsoft DEMANDS you to use their browser for Windows updates and the like...). So, I have not looked back. Being fast and simple are its biggest cons, and since the web store was released (and the extensions thrown in there), you could not ask for any better.
    The Web Store allows you to install themes that change the entire look of the browser to your liking. The various extensions will customize web pages drastically (example: my favorite extension pauses Youtube videos when opened, yet lets them buffer).
    Now for Chrome OS. To show how amazing this browser is, they've made a laptop that only runs the one program! I have owned a CR-48 for 3 months, and I use it 24/7. I curse when I have to go to my desktop for files and whatnot, because it's so bulky and slow. The cool thing too, is that when I do switch to my desktop and fire up Chrome, my themes, extensions, apps, games, etc., are all synced with my Chromebook!
    Really, I see no flaw in this program. Sure, someone else will have gripes, and will gladly point flaws out to me, but for casual web browsing, which 99.9% of people do 99.9% of the time, this is a amazing browser!
