Google's Chrome is a popular and reliable choice for browsing webpages across multiple platforms.

Pros

Safe Browsing: Chrome will alert you if you're trying to access a potentially harmful website, such as one that may harbor malware or a phishing scam. The browser is designed to limit, through sandboxing, how much access a webpage has to your system. And Chrome can manage your passwords for websites: When you sign in to a website, Chrome asks if you want to save your password.

Syncs across devices: Chrome is available across multiple platforms, including Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android. By signing into Chrome, you can sync your your history, bookmarks, and passwords across platforms and view tabs you've opened across browsers.

Manage bookmarks: Chrome helps you manage bookmarks by letting you associate an image and add notes to a bookmark. Choose between list and grid views for organizing your bookmarked sites.

Vibrant add-on market: Through the Chrome Web Store, you can find apps, extensions, and themes to extend the usefulness of Chrome or just make it more amusing to use. The store offers everything from dictionaries and games to email-alert widgets, created by Google and third-party developers.

The omnibox: Chrome combines the search and address fields into a single field called the omnibox, allowing you to enter Web addresses and search queries in the same field. The combination is in keeping with Chrome's minimalist design.

Cons

Resource intensive: Chrome users forever complain about the Web browser's insatiable need for memory and power. Google says it has attempted to address these issues with recent updates, and while the memory footprint looks smaller, Chrome still appears to require more RAM than, say, Safari does when browsing similar webpages.

Bottom line

Chrome's focus on safety and syncing across platforms makes it a solid choice.

But it's not your only choice. Other browsers offer similar capabilities and in some areas outdistance Chrome, such as Safari's ability to pin websites to its tab bar and mute a noisy tab.
