Disadvantages: Saves everything - all the data you type in, so may be a little insecure. Be careful with some websi
This is a very good quick processing browser. I had previously been using Internet Explorer as I thought it was safer and more secure, but it was becoming very slow - even with the most up to date versions it was still taking a long time to download things or wait for items to fully appear. - Partly, this was because of my old computer - I have only 1GB RAM, apparently this is very little memory, I tried adding components and increased the RAM but still it was being slow.
I kept putting off using Google Chrome as I worried about it not being so secure with sensitive information, so for a long time I didn't use online banking with it. The browser saves almost everything - all the usernames you use, all the information you have filled out previously, so if you're a frequent visitor of a particular website, all you need to do is click and choose from the saved drop down data and you're away clicking. The browser loads information pretty fast, and it feels fantastic, I've been working so much quicker.
You can open up extra tabs and the speed is almost as quick, however, if you over do it - like , open up 20 tabs at a time, obviously, it's not going to be as efficient!
It's very easy to install, just search on Google and you will be diverted to its specific website - it doesn't really take up much space on the computer either.
The only downside I can think off is the downloading process. It likes to allocate the download underneath the screen, so if you don't keep an eye on it, it's easy to forget that you have a file downloading, or if you didn't watch out for it initially you won't know where to find the link to open the document.
I use the Google Chrome browser 99% of the time now and I hardly use any other browser now. And, I finally went through on-line banking with it as well - thank goodness it doesn't seem to save any of your details and fingers crossed, everything is save and secure so far...however, this was only because my bank uses several different techniques to make it safe, so een if my computer was stolen there is still a back-up for this. So please do still be careful with Google Chrome if you're going to be using viewing or using sensitive information with the browser...
