    "Google Chrome's a hog. Can't set internet cache limit."

    January 31, 2015  |   By dcburdi

    Version: Google Chrome 40.0.2214.93

    Pros

    Better than MS's I.E. Yahoo!'s "Move" function stays at the last folder, I.E. doesn't. Multiple moves to the same folder area is facilitated.

    Cons

    Again, can't set internet cache limit in Chrome. Uses lotta memory.

    Summary

    If you can get past the internet cache limit, Chrome's great. But Mozilla Firefox is better - doesn't hog the cache.

    "I finally just gave up"

    January 25, 2015  |   By mia2524

    Version: Google Chrome 40.0.2214.91

    Pros

    Much faster than firefox or IE. I loved the older versions, I was very happy until

    Cons

    got a virus. I worked for weeks to get rid of it and searched and searched. it was only on Chrome.
    Flashplayer - stopped working., again tried everything to no avail. I hated it.
    Seems like a lots of the short cuts were upgraded with now I get to try to remember keyboard short cut Oh goody. Where is my cut, paste, print, new window or tab? And the best of all my please bookmark my page? Now to get to bookmarks I have to go to another place, click on that, then some dumb screen comes up with bunches of little boxes (like ie) and I have to search for my page. Very disturbing. then when day when the nerves on on a bit of an edge, one more thing happened and then a lightbulb went off, delete the damn thing, so i did.

    Summary

    newer technology does not mean improvement. Work smarter not harder. When you get used to something you don't like to see it change unless it is an improvement. Adding steps is not an improvement. I liked chrome, I did not want to go back to firefox but considering all the cons, I had to. sad day in this household. sad day.

    "Chrome virus Vosteran"

    January 17, 2015  |   By agick

    Version: Google Chrome 39.0.2171.99

    Pros

    None due to virus Vosteran

    Cons

    Chrome as a browser is very good but if you install with it Vosteran, a browser hijacker, you will find its search engine forced into a new tab which cannot be removed. Vosteran will be installed without your permission when you install other software such as Google 'Play'. I found Vosteran to severely impact the workings of both Chrome and IE. There are many web reports dealing with this virus and how to remove it if you Google. Unfortunately I finally had to resort to reformatting my hard-drive, reinstalling files and software, all very time consuming. Chrome Web Store promotes Vosteran and the myriad good reviews there makes me wonder if it's all just a come-on. I'm now looking again at Firefox.

    Summary

    Chrome users need to be very cautious of not installing virus Vosteran.

    "browser never seems to work right."

    January 5, 2015  |   By pukendog

    Version: Google Chrome 39.0.2171.95

    Pros

    It is Googles browser.

    Cons

    In the past years, lost count how many times, I have installed and then uninstalled Chrome, due to its many problems. Now I get 'reload' when trying to get a Google page!

    Summary

    I thought Google was a better company than that.

    "Is there another browser besides Google Chrome?"

    January 2, 2015  |   By jerrymoose

    Version: Google Chrome 39.0.2171.95

    Pros

    I have tried both IE and Chrome and as far as I am concerned, there is no comparison between the two. Chrome is Light years ahead of the Windows IE browser when it comes to ease of operation and simply user friendliness. Tell your friends and they will Thank You....

    Cons

    Microsoft is very complicated and unlike Chrome which is very easy, it takes too much time and effort.

    Summary

    There is no comparison between IE and Chrome and the only way is to try and see for your self. All of the pundits can't be wrong when they say Chrome is far and away the best Browser on the open market today.....
