A Brief Review of a Few Browsers – Chrome


Chrome was publicly released for Microsoft Windows on September 2, 2008. It was created by Google as a direct slap at Firefox.

At first its start was uneven.

In 2008 it had 3.1% of the market share

In 2010, December, Chrome had 22.4%, I.E. had 27.5%, Firefox had 43.5%.

By May of 2012, Chrome had out ranked Firefox; it had 39.3% Firefox had 35.2%.

Today, it is the most popular browser with 64.8% of the Market share.

It crashes, yes, it sometimes doesn’t load, usually takes forever, but despite it’s flaws, it is the most popular.

And, of course, the prime target for hackers.

    • That is the main reason why I ceased to use it.

      One of the realities is that when I.E. was the top Browser, hackers targeted it, and I jumped to Firefox. As soon as that Browser became popular, I jumped to Chrome, and then, left Chrome for Safari and Opera.

      On the Internet, whatever has the least traffic is the better choice.
