Devtools are awesome

Positive Comment by Eostyx about Google Chrome Apr 2012

I can't believe how wicked Chrome devtools are. After putting it off because I was wholly anti-google in the respect of ad-head hunting. But in this world, you don't have enough time to worry about this crap. I use this as my main browser now. I do still have IE and Firefox if I need them.

This is a great browser. Try it.

AdBlocking http stream has only recently become possible (youtard adblocking, et al). Such has been possible in mozila firefox since before the firefox appellation.

Google Chrome is so far more stable and reliable internet browser which I use on a daily basis.

Avoid if viewing Youtube, or lots of web browsing.

Negative Comment by gregzeng about Google Chrome Also mentioning: Opera Aug 2013

Google's Youtube policy is that we are not allowed to save their videos on our machines. If you need to view later (or slower speeds, rewinds, etc), use the add-ons that are allowed with Chromium, Opera or Firefox-types of browsers.

All web browsers are clumsy and inefficient, unless you use the correct choice of add-ons. My preference is Opera, since it does not have thousands of choices of add-ons, nor lots of useless and replicated add-ons. Inbuilt to Opera, with need add-ons are: Tab-Close-Undo, Double-click Tab-close, Popup-blocker, Script-blocker, Page-view zoom, Tab-previews, Background tab-openings, instant MHT-file saves, page-source views, address-copy, form-filling,etc.

Opera versions later than 12.xx are similar to Chromium, etc -- bad and narrow selection of add-ons. That's why Opera still offers versions 12.xx. Firefox is still trying to emulate the performance of Opera 12.xx, but its add-ons are messy: poor functioning, no compatible with latest versions of Firefox, & so many similar, overlapping choices. See my site for more detailed comments. Soon - I hope. gregzeng.com

Policy created by the naive.

Each viewed portion of the video necessarily is on your end of the network connection.

Addons don't make the interweb browser unstable. That requires either/both poorly coded extensions or/and no interweb management of resources allocated to extensions. Mozilla has routinely refused to create such functionality. Google has no such interest. Opera is not attractive for such [third party] development.

Everything on windows 32bit is slow. Everything on windows 64bit is slow with less than 16 gigs of ram. Everything is slow on OSX (mac) with less than 16 gigs of ram. Everything on shiny gui distros of linux is slow with less than 16 gigs of ram.

Average browser, popular just because of the owner

Negative Comment by LAN about Google Chrome Also mentioning: Firefox Jul 2014

I use Mozilla Firefox since 2008. A couple of months ago I tried Google Chrome, but I was disappointed and I went back to Firefox. I think Chrome is nothing special, it's popular just because of the developer (Google). Here are things I didn't like:

  • It was slower than all other browsers.
  • Customization options are very poor.
  • It's very big (occupies about 250 MB of hard disk space).
  • If you have very slow Internet connection, it doesn't work at all.
  • I'm concerned about privacy, because Google is a known tracker.

I agree with you a little bit . But to be Honest it's not that bad . But my favorite and first place browser is Firefox.

 
Unwasted_Youth-image

Google is primarily an Ad Server. Their "free" properties exist to help you help them profile every bit of you. That's bad.

Privacy is valuable and sacrosanct -- like honor. Don't whore it away. When any-you allows privacy to be pillaged- and raped it ERODES the Expectation of Privacy of everyone!! That's very not-good.

Known bug for quite some time. You are not fully incognito if you allow any flash elements on any site.

I love it

Positive Comment by OlaMohammad about Google Chrome Also mentioning: Firefox Opera Feb 2014

One of mt favorite browsers alongside with Firefox (my most favorite one) and Opera

I've recently noticed that Chrome loads large webpages much slower than Safari in Mac OS X. While the difference isn't large enough to notice in most day-to-day browsing, Chrome tends to stutter and lag out on my Hackintosh when it attempts to load extremely large pages, such as long Wikipedia articles or forum threads.

Meanwhile, Safari can load anything pretty much instantaneously. I love Chrome (and there's no chance that I'm giving up all of its extra features for Safari), but this discrepancy in loading times is rather puzzling to me.

 
OmgItsTheSmartGuy-image

Chrome for iPhone and iPad doesn't have a lot of extra features, unlike other 3rd-party browsers (e.g. Atomic Web Browser, Mercury Browser, iCab, etc...). However, Chrome is a real pleasure to use on my iPhone, which is more than can be said for the other browsers.

Very good but...

Comment by User6129169 about Google Chrome May 2012

It is great in term of speed and stability but questionable when it comes to privacy

 
OmgItsTheSmartGuy-image

On my Hackintosh, Google Chrome crashes every other day-- usually when I'm opening or saving files. It's kind of annoying, though not a deal-killer, since Chrome can restart and restore all of my tabs in like 3 seconds. Individual pages crash relatively frequently, too. Once again, not a deal-killer, but Google seriously has to work on the stability of Chrome on Mac OS X.

UPDATE (7/8/12): The problem resolved itself a few months ago. Chrome now runs great on my Hackintosh.
