    "All good things come to an end"

    February 14, 2013  |   By jscott418

    Version: Google Chrome 24.0.1312.57

    Pros

    Fast as any browser out there

    Cons

    Intermittent crashes with Flash video. Pushes too hard to nag about a Google account or making Google.com Home page
    Some web page buttons are broken or have limited area for clicking.
    I have to click several times a button to record a click.

    Summary

    I used to think Chrome was THE browser for just about everyone.
    But now I refrain from bragging too much about it. I think some things Google did with Chrome did advance the browser. But now things like intergrated Flash player have only made more problems.
    Actually the more I end up back with IE9 I develop much more of a respect for it. The ideal of such a long update period between browser versions. Does turn off many from IE. But now I find that maybe these frequent updates like Google and Mozilla do are not the best way of providing a solid browser. Maybe they get feature improvements faster. But haven't Chrome and Firefox developed more stability problems with that?

    "Brilliant BUT UNBELIEVABLY FRUSTRATING"

    February 13, 2013  |   By jasdinh213

    Version: Google Chrome 24.0.1312.57

    Pros

    Good at almost everything

    Cons

    Ridiculous when it comes to crashing. An absoulute joke, it will drive you crazy and end up switching to Mozzila or IE. They do not even bother to reply to the large amount of people who have to same problem with the shockwave crashing, if they do they just give stupid advice like restart to computer.

    Summary

    No point of the software, I have never reviewed any software in my life, but this web browser got me so angry I had to give it a bad review. It's stupid and they need to work on the crashing problems and not try to add new features when they already have current big problems.

    "A so-so browser"

    February 12, 2013  |   By wyzwyk

    Version: Google Chrome 24.0.1312.57

    Pros

    Chrome is very fast both starting and rendering web pages.

    Cons

    1) minimalist Gui
    2) not as customizable as desired
    3) I have privacy concerns in dealing with Google

    Summary

    I can't stand the minimalist GUI Chrome uses, and compared to Firefox this browser feels limiting. Simply put, I can't customize it to work the way I can with Mozilla's Firefox. Others may put Chrome on a pedestal and worship it, but I think it's a 2nd-rate offering from a company that "saves" far too much information about users; a backup browser at best.

    - Not so many addons as Firefox
    - Strange menus

    "Shame about the hijacker"

    February 11, 2013  |   By Chris-Shaw

    Version: Google Chrome 24.0.1312.57

    Pros

    I prefer Google Chrome to Internet Explorer; it is more versatile and user friendly.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I have had to uninstall the new Google Chrome I downloaded as it has picked up a hijacker virus in the form of Iminent search bar/tab which downloaded itself and attached to my previous version of Google Chrome. And this even though I had removed all visible traces of Iminent. It even attached itself to Google Chrome on my laptop even though the desktop and laptop hadnot been in any contact apart from sharing an email address. Fortunately it does not seem to be affecting Internet Explorer.

    "on top of the ranking"

    February 6, 2013  |   By nickerj

    Version: Google Chrome 24.0.1312.57

    Pros

    thank you google.
    IE almost killed us out of frustration
    FF gave us hope and
    Chrome finally gave us the life we deserved as technology beings

    Cons

    sometimes crashes

    Summary

    very fast, consumes too much memory but releases the memory once closing each tab
    the other two still don't know how todo it.
