Google Chrome is a free web browser. One of the most popular choices for everyday online use, Chrome was created by internet giants Google in 2008 and continues to be developed across multiple platforms.
Leading the pack
Since its release a decade ago, Chrome has become the most popular choice for internet browsing across all platforms. Thanks to a universally simple interface across all platforms, cross-platform automatic connection and open source development releases, the browser is fantastic for nearly every user's requirements. Due to this popularity, the surrounding development of plug-ins and add-ons by third parties is similarly robust meaning that users get the most current extra applications. Beta and mobile versions of Google Chrome are also available including past releases from the dedicated Chrome launch page, including the open source Chromium stand alone edition. While the overall user experience with Google Chrome lives up to its popularity, occasional concerns have been raised regrading privacy. Google's business practice of the mass gathering of user information has lead to negative exposure.
Far and away
Google Chrome is a slick and efficient web browser with user experience at the forefront. The multiple versions available across platforms share the industry-leading design of the internet monolith.
