Why shall I use Google Chrome?
Basic mantra of productivity is to do less and get more. This has lead many users to use Chrome over other internet browsers. For common computer users it is more evident that they want more jobs done by fewer clicks, fewer mouse movements and lesser key press. Google has done fantastic job in Chrome for its users.
I will only mention the small but the best points which has attracted me as a Google Chrome user. When I first installed and opened Google Chrome, the first thing which made me smile was the multi-tab feature, though some browser were already has it, but I tried comparing Chrome with other browser at that time and none of them were as smooth and fast as Google Chrome. Plus, when you press mouse' scroll button and tab is close. I do not have to move my mouse and pin point 'X' symbol and give unnecessary trouble to my finger muscles. Was this feature that difficult to implement by others, no, right? And of course many other browsers followed Chrome later.
Other small features which I loved was, reopening the closed tab. Its a style of Google we should say, that it gives one chance to users to correct mistakes (UNDO feature) in all of its product. Many times I close my tab accidentaly and I have to navigate to that website painfully if I do not know how I reached there at the first place. At such times this features is a life saver. Now suppose, you are a heavy internet surfer, then many times you opened up 10s of tabs in your browser. Due to high work pressure sometime we get lost in what all we have opened, which one to keep and which one to close. At such time, I simply chose the relevant one and close all other tabs BY simply right clicking and choosing 'close other tabs'. So fantastic right, I do not have to click-click 10 20 times to close all of it. Google cares man. Thats why I love it.
Chrome was the first to sync your browser data (bookmark, cache and blah blah) between your home laptop and office laptop. Hope I am not wrong here, but I found it first on Google Chrome. Last time when I changed my company I was like "shit I forgot to save my bookmarks". But to my surprise when I logged in to Google Chrome on my new office laptop, my eyes were wide open and saying "hello its everything here..yeahhhh".
I am not saying other browser are not good, all I am saying is Chrome is the first.
