Google"s Chrome Web browser has become one of the most popular in the world, thanks to lớn smooth performance, support for add-ons, và features like casting and voice search that are absent in or only partially implemented by competing browsers lượt thích Safari, Mozilla Firefox, & Microsoft Edge.


The best add-on support: Chrome slightly edges out Firefox in two ways. One, your add-ons are linked to your Google trương mục. So if you tải về a new version of Chrome or install an add-on on one of your devices, when you log in lớn your Google account in Chrome on another device, the browser will automatically tải về and install those add-ons or updates. Two, the Chrome version of an add-on frequently has more work put inkhổng lồ the user interface. For example, the login UI for LastPass is much nicer looking in Chrome than it is in Firefox. That matters if you"re logging in and out of LastPass all day.

Plus, Chrome"s task manager (access it by pressing Shift-Esc) breaks down how much RAM & CPU power each add-ons is using, so you can identify ones that may be causing issues with browser performance or device battery life. Firefox has some tools khổng lồ track add-on performance, but they"re not nearly as user-friendly.

Great casting support: Casting in Chrome used to require an add-on, but it"s now embedded in the browser. If you have sầu a TV with a Chromecast device và it"s on the same network as your PC, you can open a Chrome tab on your PC & skết thúc it to y0ur television. Or you can cast a streaming video that"s embedded on that tab. This is handy for presentations or for watching a Clip on a big screen. By contrast, for Firefox, only the Android version can stream, it doesn"t support as wide a variety of video types, & you can"t cast a tab.

Voice search: When you go to lớn in the Chrome browser, the search field has a microphone ibé in it. Clichồng it khổng lồ search using your voice, if your computer has an enabled microphone. For most people, this is much faster than typing a tìm kiếm query.


Memory usage could be better: It"s not unusual for Chrome khổng lồ use over a gigabyte of RAM, even when you have just a few tabs open that are more or less static. There are understandable reasons for that -- for one, Chrome has to rethành viên your recently closed tabs so that they can quickly reload on demand. But Chrome does not tover lớn scale down its usage on devices that have limited amounts of RAM.

Resistance khổng lồ add-ons that embedded videos: As the owner of YouTube, Google naturally doesn"t want people bacgiangview.coming its videos và viewing them without the ads that make it profitable. But offline viewing is important for people with unreliable connections or who expect to lớn be away from the Internet for an extended period of time.

Google has partly closed the gap with its YouTube Red subscription, which lets you tải về videos from the site for $10 a month, removes ads, and provides Google Play Music at no added cost. (And conversely, if you subscribe khổng lồ Google Play Music, YouTube Red is bundled for không tính phí.) But that only applies to lớn YouTube. If you dig around, you can find a few add0ons that lets you embedded videos in Chrome, but they all have sầu varying degrees of sketchiness.

Bottom Line

The most popular browser choice isn"t necessarily the best. But despite its issues with RAM usage and limited bacgiangview.coming of embedded videos, Chrome earns its No. 1 spot with smooth page loading, lots of add-on support, và forward-looking features lượt thích casting and voice tìm kiếm.
