Total disregard for human dignty and freedom. The developers are way too curious about you as a person. Curious about what you do, where you want to go, who you talk to, who you may want to marry, who you want to hand over your last will and testament to.

On the technical side, it is mainly an app platform, thousands of low quality apps which bring nothing new to the table.

Being the most used browser means nothing. Thanks to samsung, who made the android OS popular by building cheap Iphone-look alike toys, this browser managed to dominate the market.

If you want speed, try edge. If you want security and privacy, try Internet explorer (11.0.47). If you want the whole package, try Mozilla Quantom (aka Firefox 57+, which will be available within a week)


Are you serious about Internet Explorer more secure and private than chrome?
I am not defending chrome, my favorite browser is Firefox, I am just checking you are serious about that.

@OlaMohammad, one of those two things are true, the privacy part. I'm sure IE doesn't save a log of websites you visit to remember your zoom preferences lol (These don't get deleted when you clear browsing data).

Very good but...

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


Surprisingly slow to load certain webpages

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.

I like this browser. I always use it. The only thing is that he eats a lot of RAM. So, if you have a weak computer - it can hang.


Perfect browser

Chrome is the best browser i've ever used, light, fast, secure. Very easy to sync and mange my bookmarks across my devices. Also like to use gmail to deal with my emails.


I'm not sure about the light part though. The syncing is very useful, but other browsers like Firefox also offer similar features.

Vulnerable to Unicode text phishing scam

Vivaldi, although based on Chrome, is not vulnerable like Chrome is to the Unicode text phishing scam.

PSA: Chrome will force update you to the newer version, do not believe the downloads because it is just a installer that will check for updates, every time.

Espectacular navegador es perfecto por su sincronización con toda la plataforma de google


Te mantiene dentro del ecosistema de Google, una compañia malvada (lol).

Hablando en serio, Google ya es lo suficientemente presente en la web.

La web no es de Google, y nunca debe ser de él.
