Google Chrome is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google.

Why Google Chrome?

  • The Google Chrome browser takes a sandboxing-based approach to web security.
  • Each open website runs as its own process, which helps prevent malicious code on one page from affecting your operating system as a whole.
  • Also a peculiar thing, I noticed sometimes Google Applications doesn’t works well in other browsers especially YouTube.
