    "Average browser, popular because of the owner"

    September 6, 2014  |   By LLI-JBS

    Version: Google Chrome 37.0.2062.103

    Pros

    - Clean user interface.
    - Easy to use for normal users.
    - Automatic updating.
    - Google integration.
    - Great HTML5 support.
    - Good Dev Tools.
    - Sync.
    - Built-in Flash.

    Cons

    - Quite slow on all my computers.
    - Concerned about privacy (Google is a known tracker).
    - Not very friendly UI for power users.
    - Poor customization features.
    - Large (about 250 MB of hard disk).
    - Some webpages are broken in Chrome.
    - Doesn't work at all at poor Internet connection.
    - Extensions are not as useful as in Firefox.

    Summary

    It's not a bad browser, but there are much better browsers. Many users say it's great; it's probably just because of the owner (Google) and its power in Internet world. If you're not a power user and you love Google, you'll probably like Chrome. But if you want to have a really good browser, I recommend Firefox.

    Pros

    Free, frequent updates,

    Cons

    Slower than MSIE, does not open all web sites that MSIE does

    Summary

    I tryed Firefox and Chrome, both good browsers but I always go back to MSIE because it`s faster than the others and I have yet to find a web site that it wouldn't open.

    "When it's working it's great."

    July 14, 2014  |   By bluesmanbass

    Version: Google Chrome 35.0.1916.153

    Pros

    Easy to use and understand Intuitive. Does what it should most of the time.

    Cons

    Application Shortcuts exclude bookmark bar, search window, etc.....

    All was well until I hit a wall. Google Chrome refuses to update!
    Version 35.0.1916.114 dev-m
    Update failed (error: 3)An error occurred while checking for updates: Update check failed to start (error code 3: 0x80040154 -- system level).

    I've been trying to update for MONTHS without success and it's driving me crazy! I've been using Chrome for over two years and now....?

    Summary

    I have thoroughly enjoyed Google Chrome for over two years. I love it but now... I'm lost! It will not update. It has slowed down. Sometimes it won't function and the updates carry the security fixes! I have tried and followed every lead. I have restored browser settings to their original defaults to no avail!

    I am going to keep up the good fight for another week or two, but in mean time; If anyone in the Cnet domain happens upon a resolution to my quandary will you please contact me? If you can help I will be forever in your debt......and may the odds be ever in my favor! (There's the nerd in me!)

    Though this has happened to me I'm sure I'm one in a million! I would still highly recommend this browser. It has been a delight. Just go slow when you click on About Google Chrome!

    "I quit Google Chrome"

    June 18, 2014  |   By losmeme

    Version: Google Chrome 35.0.1916.153

    Pros

    Fast generally reliable

    Cons

    Uncontrollable

    Summary

    Today is the last day I fight with the little man that resides in each and every chrome browser. This man has been tasked by Google to infuriate you at any cost, to trip you up and make you loose work. The little man is there to ensure you use chrome how Google sees fit, and not how you would like to work. The little man will not play videos on certain sites, the little man will inexplicably launch Chrome in Windows 8 mode, and then refuse to return to the desktop without a restart. The little man will loose a decades worth of bookmarks during a simple upgrade. The little man will arbitrarily decide to trash all your settings, and use only the Google approved ones.

    The internet was never meant to be this difficult to access, why Google can't understand that is beyond me.

    "My default browser."

    June 14, 2014  |   By sammojr

    Version: Google Chrome 35.0.1916.153

    Pros

    Fastest browser I know of. Google leads the way in new web technologies currently. It's also leads the way in standards compliance by W3C standards. There is much additional functionality to add between Chrome Apps & Chrome Extensions as well as nice pretty themes. It's minimalist design makes the use of the browser fairly easy. There is no redundant buttons, toolbars or any redundant bars for that matter. The omni-bar simplifies the interface, there is no separate address bar from search bar, which is easier in my opinion than having to click between two boxes to type in a search query, or type in a URL.

    Cons

    It could use a better download manager. As far as I know there is no good download manager extension, or app for Google Chrome. There is no open file ability from the download manager, only save file can be selected. Incognito mode opens a new window. There is no option to set it to open in new tab.

    Summary

    Google Chrome is a great browser. Fast, simple, yet extensive-able. It's at fore front of new web technologies in attempt to make the web better, from WebP to Native Client. Google Chrome is a serious choice for people who want the latest, fastest, and efficient browsing.
