Many browsers surround today’s web. Browsers let us access web sites, at a glance. But today’s browsers mean so much more than that. We’d like to introduce to you, our personal favorite, Google Chrome.
If you know Google, their products are fast, secure, and simple. That’s a brief explanation of Chrome.
Chrome has bragging rights for being the fastest web browser today. And it’s not just an opinion. Here’s some proof (lower load times are better, because that means you can wait less for pages to load):
Chrome is also an amazing browser, even when we’re not looking at it’s awesome web-app applicability. It has it’s own app store, with “Chrome Apps”, Extensions, and Themes that are filled with productivity, and make Chrome Life even easier than what it already is.
Google Chrome even boasts to be a very secure browser. It supports the highest levels of SSL, and has NEVER had a security bug/virus/hack in the public version of Chrome. It also warns you when you go to insecure webpages.
The only incapability of Chrome that some of us might HATE, is that it can’t process Microsoft Silverlight correctly MOST of the time. This is something Microsoft and Google themselves admitted, that Silverlight does not work on Chrome, and only a few lucky users can actually play Silverlight video on Chrome. You may be thinking, “I don’t care”, but you probably do, because without Silverlight, you can’t play Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, and many other amazing video services (except YouTube and Vimeo work fine in Chrome!).
If you’ve got Chrome, and want to watch a Silverlight (Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu, and a few more) video, just open your system built-in browser (Safari for Macs, IE for Windows), and make sure you have Silverlight downloaded from Microsoft (if not, Google search “silverlight plugin download”). It should work (unless you are on a Chromebook).
In conclusion, Google Chrome is an amazing browser, and if you didn’t know that already, we bet you’ll find out.
