• According to the TopTen reviews Google Chrome happens to be one of the best internet browsers used by millions of users. It works best with initial startups; it works equally well for average startups and the navigation times. It is truly compatible for uBlock Origin adblocker.
• Google Chrome has a simple user interface and the address bar and the search bar is one and the same thing, that is why Google calls it Omnibox.
• Multiple account Logins are allowed with Google Chrome browser only. One facility that Google Chrome offers its users is that of getting logged in with multiple accounts at a time, and this makes managing different accounts super easy.
• Chrome works great with a number of extensions while other browsers become slower with each increasing extension. Chrome maintains its good speed regardless of the number of extensions added to the browser.
• One more feature that makes chrome so popular is the fact that each of the tabs that we open works at its own speed and if one tab becomes unresponsive the others stay responsive and we do not have to restart the browser.
• Chrome has one more feature that is lacking in most of the browsers and that is its ability to cast data from one device to the other using Google Chromecast.
• It uses less RAM as compared to Firefox and many other browsers.
• One thing that most of the critics talk about in connection to Google Chrome being the best browser is that it is not an open source browser like Firefox and a number of other browsers.
• For the computer systems that are low on memory or RAM it might not work properly but we cannot call it a con as most of the browsers need ample amount of computer memory to work efficiently.
• Online tracking of the browser activity is on by default and you have the option of stop tracking but you have to do it manually.
• When chrome was introduced it was considered one of the fastest web browsers but with passage of time it has become noticeably slow for a number of operating systems if not all.
There is one thing about information technology that leaves the debates and comparisons between two web browsers undecided and that is the different behavior of software with different operating systems, and resources. When Firefox works good on Linux chrome proves to work more efficiently with windows or even vice versa. So, to sum up the debate there is only one conclusion that both Firefox Quantum and Google Chrome are efficient browsers and work very well provided the system they are to be used on has enough Ram and storage.
