Editors' Review

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.

"Works half the time"

January 13, 2015  |  By dominique1981

2015-01-13 20:28:49  |  By dominique1981

 |  Version: Google Chrome 39.0.2171.99

Pros

Incognito mode, when it works.

Cons

This browser is just riddled with problems and issues.

Google Search does not work half the time when I use Chrome. Other sites will load, and search will work in other browsers. But specifically using Google Search in Google Chrome fails half the time.

Don't even get me started on Google Maps, Drive or Docs when I'm in Chrome. I have to force it to use the old Google Maps and cross my fingers that maybe, just maybe, this time it'll work.

It just blows my mind that these Google products specifically do not work when I'm in Chrome no matter my settings, addons, extensions, etc. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, reuninstalled, rereinstalled, no dice. I'm beyond disappointed.

Summary

Loads slowly to not at all. Can't watch any videos that demand specific plugins (i.e. on Apple's site). Cannot handle its own Google products. What a sad, sad disappointment. Disgusted. Anything and everything is better.

Pros

It's pretty fast and works with most web sites. The search window allows some customization so that you are not stuck with using Yahoo, Bing, or Google Search

Cons

"Chrome is always more stable than Safari"

February 26, 2014  |  By Rage SW

2014-02-26 21:25:54  |  By Rage SW

 |  Version: Google Chrome 33.0.1750.117

Pros

I find Chrome to be a lot more stable than Safari especially, not surprisingly, for Google services which I use a lot of (gmail, youtube, etc...)

I like how Private browser is per browser window rather than for the entire app (like in Safari) as this resets cookie data for websites that are currently opened in browser windows.

Cons

Still like the UI of Safari better. Of all the web browsers, Safari just feels more like a Mac app.

"STILL NO 64-BIT VERSION (MAC)"

November 07, 2013  |  By JCPayne

2013-11-07 17:00:07  |  By JCPayne

 |  Version: Google Chrome 30.0.1599.69

Pros

Liked it. Has nice feel to it.

Cons

Plugins constantly scream that Chrome for mac isn't 64-bit yet. Surprising that with the billions Google has and the amount of time which has passed that they can't create a 64-bit version for MAC.
