Google Chrome. The need for browsing speed is finally here. Review with images

AdvantagesA Very Speedy Web Browser That Is Installed In Seconds.


"...Installed in seconds_ '''REASONS FOR USING GOOGLE CHROME.''' I know there is many reviews on the internet about Google Chrome, but I thought I would write one and voice my opinions and experiences of it myself, as I really want to let everyone know how great a browser it really is. I first started using Google Chrome about two months ago, as I was having problems on Ciao.com, accepting friends and writing comments. I reported this technical ..." Read review

Ciao members have rated this review on average: exceptional


AdvantagesVery quick, simple design, very customisable.

DisadvantagesNot good for the workplace using proxy servers.

"What is Google Chrome? ******************************** A Web browser from Google of course! If you’re reading this review then you will almost certainly be using a Web browser to view it on this site. I would probably estimate that around 90% of users are using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer just because it comes shipped with Windows (and have never known anything different), but some of us prefer to use a Web browsing tool that is much more powerful ..."

Not made in China

AdvantagesSpeed of browser plus simplistic design

DisadvantagesSometimes web pages appear to be viewed as if it was 1997

"...advertising campaign; never before has Google had to enforce any written media coverage regarding one of their products or services. Google is pre empting web browser world domination, and who is to say this browser won't become as euphoric as MicroSoft Office and its application suite. Google have embarked on toolbar accessory add-ons since the year dot; and it would only be a matter of time for Google's browser Chrome to break the mould of conventional ..." Read review

Chromium (III) Picolinate Review with images

AdvantagesFast, Rarely Crashes,

DisadvantagesSome minor problems

"...Mozilla Firefox, and more recently, Google Chrome. I had always used IE, although I chose not to upgrade my IE6 to IE7, since I don?t like the look of it, and don't really like their tabbed browsing. The main problem I found with IE was the times it would crash, or become unresponsive, this really annoyed me, so I branched out and downloaded Firefox, which then became my primary browser for quite a while. That was until Google Chrome was launched! Google ..." Read review

Google Chrome - Loaded a webpage in 1 second!

AdvantagesVery Fast, Reliable, Great Bookmark Manager, Incognito, New Extensions

DisadvantagesLimited Themes

"Google Chrome is Google’s answer to an internet website browser. It is basically a replacement for Internet Explorer, FireFox, Safari, Opera or any other program you may be using to view websites on the internet. I have personally been using Google Chrome since its public release back in September 2008 and since I’ve downloaded it over a year ago, it had instantly become my favourite web browser because of its extraordinary speed and outright simple ..."

The best web browser on the Windows platform

AdvantagesFast, clean, modern, looks great

DisadvantagesOccasional crash but same with any browser

"...then you should try installing Google Chrome. Chrome has many features for developers, in depth users and your every day user. This review looks at every day users. First of all you'll need to install Chrome because it's not a default Windows browser. But don't worry, even if you're not massively computer literate, installation is dead easy and takes a matter of minutes. Those minutes by the way will mostly be taken up by the automatic installation ..." Read review

It might be my fault

AdvantagesQuicker and more comforable to use

DisadvantagesCrashes too often

"...anyhow I decided to give Google Chrome a try and see how good it was since I had heard nothing but good things about it. After doing a Google search I found the download site and proceeded to get the download. It was all really simple and easy and within half an hour I had the new browser available on my computer. The first thing I noticed was that the page load time had significantly reduced meaning my webpages were loading a lot faster, which ..." Read review

Google Chrome - try a cool, shiny new browser!

AdvantagesFree, quick download & installation, easy to use, stable

Disadvantagesnot much customisation available

"...suddenly remembered that I'd heard Google had released a browser too. I checked out the website and like what I saw, so I went ahead and downloaded it. GETTING CHROME Chrome installs quickly and part of the process is a step which allows you to import data from your current browser - passwords, favourites etc. The website is here: http://www.google.com/chrome. HOW IT LOOKS The first thing I noticed was that Chrome has a pretty minimalist look. ..." Read review

Google Chrome outshines the rest

AdvantagesQuick and easy to use


"...for another review. What is Google Chrome It's a web browser, similar to IE, Netscape or Mozilla that allows you surf the net and enjoy the delights of the world wide web. It's been developed by Google as an alternative to the big names and from what I hear is already making a big impact. How do you get it? Simple, I found the Google Chrome website by using Google (funnily enough) and within seconds was looking at the download page. OH was a ..." Read review

Yes but sort this facebook nonesense out! Review with images

AdvantagesFree and quick


"...XP users anymore and so Google Chrome it is. Once I downloaded Chrome the ciao video ran straight away, clearly having a better relationship with Adobe Flash than Microsoft is. I’m not going to buy the Hotpoint washing machine after the reviews as you can’t judge how good a machine is with just three weeks usage, what the guys and girls got. They got to keep the washing machine too so I may well put myself forward next time if it is just a freebie ..." Read review

Googles browsers promise falls short

AdvantagesFast, tabs

DisadvantagesCrashes too much, takes up too much of the CPU, Doesn't close properly

"In late 2008 Google said hello to the browsing world competing directly with Mozilla, Safari, Opera and of course Microsoft's Internet Explorer, with the release (originally of the Beta version) of Google Chrome. The search engine giant (among other things) were expanding once more from the Email client they've provided for a few years (Gmail/Googlemail), the purchase of Youtube meaning they had a video playing site, the google docs software that ..."

Chrome - Simply Simple

AdvantagesSimple, easy to use, many cool features, very fast

DisadvantagesNo add-ons, lack of customisability

"...main browser - I think Google Chrome is by far the best web browser, even better than Firefox. Speed: Google Chrome is incredibly fast at starting, browsing and all of the actions you can carry out in Chrome are fast. Unlike Firefox, which takes a long time to start for me, Chrome starts instantly and you are ready to go straight away. And unlike Internet Explorer, it doesn't take ages for pages to load. ---------- Compatibility: As you would ..." Read review

Best Web Browser I have used

Advantagesfast, efficient, lots of features

DisadvantagesDoes crash sometimes

"Since downloading Google chrome I have used no other web browser. Google Chrome is by far the fastest web browser I have used and I don't think that I could now ever go back to the slowness of Internet Explorer. Having used Internet Explorer and Firefox before I am definitely decided on the fact that Google Chrome is the best of the lot. The design of Google Chrome is good, and the web browser is easy to use and navigate. One of the best features ..." Read review

Google Chrome Browser

AdvantagesTab opening

DisadvantagesStark appearance, lack of customisation beyond basics

"...other browser). I downloaded Google Chrome a couple of days ago and, like the other posters here, I have mixed feelings about it. Like them I found it very minimalistic in appearance - there's a LOT of blank white space on the home page - and I can't find any way of customising the appearance so far (apart from the "zoom text", etc tools, but I suppose it will attract "skinners" eventually once they find a way to create them) Talking about tools ..."

Extremely fast and mostly compatible for casual use

AdvantagesVery fast speed, simple, user-friendly interface.

DisadvantagesJagged performances with YouTube videos and some games.

"As we all know, Google advertised their new browser on their homepage, attracting millions of users including myself. INSTALLATION So I clicked on the link which led me to the site to download and install the browser, it boasted it's quick installation, this was indeed true; the download finished in a couple of minutes and even automatically imported my settings and bookmarks from IE. Note: You may have to enable activex control otherwise the ..." Read review
