Google Chrome Review

This post is going to list some reasons why Google Chrome is the best program ever. I mostly compare it to Firefox because if your still using Internet Explorer then you don't even deserve to use Google Chrome.
  1. It saves screen space.
    Any place on a screen with something you already know is wasted space. Windows naturally wastes a whole horizontal bar across the top of the screen unless your using Google Chrome. They have managed to work around window's shortcomings and they put all the tabs open inside that top bar. (See screenshot below)

  2. You can type google searches in the address bar
    That's right, they save even more space by avoiding that little search form that firefox has on the top right.

  3. Two click access to your favorite sites
    To go to gmail I type 'g' in the search/url bar then hit 'Enter.' I type 'b Enter' and it goes to

  4. Super Stealth Mode
    Ever want to log-into your spam email account without losing your current session? You could use an inferior browser, like IE, or you can click ctrl-shift-n to open a new chrome browser which will have its own cookies (so you can be logged into both at the same time).

  5. Its amazingly fast
    Faster than you can possibly imagine. It take a tenth of the RAM that Firefox needs which is a billion times less than IE.

  6. Slow running tabs don't slow other ones.
    If one tab seems to be crashing, you don't even need to close it, your other tabs are safe with Google Chrome.

  7. They have a sense of humor.
    See below.
Recently I got a bad virus on my computer which has destroyed function in many programs. As with all good computer programmers, chrome errors are funny, see below.

"Aw, Snap!
"Something went wrong while displaying this webpage. To continue . . . . "

It actually stopped working all together when the virus got out of controll so I did something you would never want to do volutarily . . . uninstall it. I got the following message:

"Are you sure you want to uninstall Google Chrome? (Was it something we said?)"


  1. Sounds awesome. I might check it out.

  2. How much is google paying you for your testimonial?

    Did you work out a deal when you gave your talk there a while back?

  3. I should really be paying Google for giving me the most amazing browser ever.

  4. The Reason it said "was it something we said" was because in their EULA it says "Google owns all your stuff" (paraphrasing of course) ;)
