Google Chrome is a web browser that aims to deliver a fast and simple Internet navigation mode while bundling several powerful features, such as bookmarks, synchronization, privacy mode, extensions, themes, automatic web page translation, and some more.

Clean browsing sessions

Simplicity is at the core of Chrome’s philosophy and is the word that describes best the GUI. Chrome is the type of browser that doesn’t get in your way. It provides a seamless navigation mode and easy-to-trigger customization options.

Another big plus is the clean look that it has to offer, as you may focus solely on your work without being distracted by unnecessary buttons or extra configuration settings.

Search and navigation possibilities

You can work with multiple tabs, pin your favorite ones and have them opened automatically every time you launch Chrome, as well as make use of the drag-and-drop support for rearranging tabs in the preferred order.

The web browser integrates a single search box, the so-called Omnibox, where you are allowed to perform search operations on the web and access different websites. The auto-completion feature proves to be particularly useful as it provides suggestions as you start typing.

Other power functions for enhancing your daily web browsing on the Internet include a build-in PDF viewer (resizing, saving and printing options are supported), custom keywords for your favorite websites, as well as the browser’s ability of remembering previously opened tabs.

Themes can be used for personalizing the way your web browser looks like while extensions give you the freedom to take screenshots, track discounts, read RSS feeds, and more.

Security tools

Chrome isn’t all about streamlined looks and easy-to search options, as it bundles a phishing detector that lets you know each time you land on websites suspected of containing malware or phishing, implements the sandboxing technology for preventing malware from installing itself on your computer, as well as an automatic updating system for making sure you run the latest security features and fixes.

Privacy

When it comes to keeping your private sessions anonymous, the developers from Google created the well-known Incognito mode. This ensures that your websites visits and downloads are not saved in the browsing and download histories and all cookies are automatically deleted when you close the incognito tabs.

You can also clear your browsing data, be it browsing and download history, cookies and plug-in info, cached images and files, passwords, autofill form and hosted app data, or content licenses. Additionally, you may control your privacy preferences for cookies, images, JavaScript, and plugins. For example, cookies may be allowed to run for certain websites and blocked for all other sites.

Sync mode

You may sign in with your Google account and save your applications, themes, extensions, autofill forms, passwords, bookmarks, and other settings, so you can access them on all your devices.

An overall reliable and easy-to-handle browser

Chromes manages to mix up a clean and simple interface with an advanced set of configuration settings for delivering streamlined and secure browsing sessions. This makes it the perfect browser basically for every type of user out there.
