Features of Google Chrome
Google’s Chrome browser is a great way to surf the web, but it has so many cool features that you may not even know what they are! This post is here to tell you. Here are some of our favorites:
- The original name of the browser was “Aurora” when it was launched in 2008.
- Incognito mode allows you to browse anonymously with no record of your search history.
- There’s an offline mode for when internet access isn’t available or desired.
- The passwords are saved for your Google account, making it easy to log in.
- Google Chrome has built-in productivity tools like sticky notes and a to-do list.
- It’s also got a great extension store for installing new plug-ins.
- Chrome can read PDFs, highlight text, and even remember your searches.
- Google Chrome is available for Windows, OSX, Linux, and Chrome OS (the operating system for Chromebooks).
Google Chrome can load web pages lightning fast by using pre-rendering technology.
The browser downloads any data that looks like text into its cache of text-related resources. This means that every time you visit that site, Chrome will download the resources it needs, thereby saving you time and bandwidth.
Google Chrome for Mobile
You can get Google Chrome onto your iPhone or Android device. This is especially handy for users of these devices because it’s the only way they can browse Facebook in a native app. -Google Chrome’s code name was “Caveman” during its development, and the browser was released under the codename “Bobby” until the official launch.
Chrome mobile features the navigation bar at the top of the screen, while Chrome desktop features it on the left side.
The Navigation bar allows you to navigate your web browser. This article will help get you started with this tool. The navigation bar is located at the top of your browser window and provides quick access to website favorites (your bookmarks), settings (such as volume or language), and other associated tools like an ad-blocker or history panel. It also gives access to powerful functions like search and the home button for easy browsing.
Google Chrome sync
Google Chrome sync is a feature that allows you to synchronize all your chrome settings across multiple computers. To access the feature, go to ‘Chrome’ Settings, select ‘Users’ and click Add User. Here you can add Chrome to your existing Google account by clicking ‘Add another account. Besides many other settings, such as bookmarks and passwords, chrome sync will also synchronize tabs, history, and browsing activity across devices (desktop and mobile). If you want to view all the history on a different device, you need to turn on ‘Sync browsing history’.
Plugins in Google Chrome
Google Chrome does not have any built-in form of security or anti-spam, but with the help of plug-ins, you can easily filter out unwanted content. Plug-ins are small programs developed by third parties that perform specific functions. A wide variety of security plug-ins are available on the Chrome Web Store. The more popular security plug-ins are Adblock Plus, NoScript, uBlock Origin, ScriptSafe, etc. If you want to prevent browser vulnerabilities from being exploited by hackers, you must install one of these security plug-ins. For example, I have used Adblock Plus on my Chrome for a long time and it completely stopped the ads with which I was disturbed in various places like Google search page, Facebook pages, etc., and also helped me to pass through the malicious web pages.
Google Chrome Extensions
Google chrome is a web browser like Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer which has lots of extensions that can enhance the user experience as well as the security. These extensions are written by third-party developers and often have a price from $0 to $100. A popular example of an extension is Ghostery, an anti-tracking software. This software will tell you which website is tracking you currently and which trackers have been blocked by Ghostery for your safety. An extension with a price of $2 per month will stop ads, remove annoying social networking buttons from websites, hide annoying content along with saving battery power for mobile users. If you want to install any extension, you need to complete the installation process.
Google Chrome extensions are also useful in alerting users about malware. These are extensions that scan the browser page to see if the browser is infected by any malware/viruses or spyware. For example, AVG Anti-Virus may alert you when a new malicious file has been found on your computer because it doesn’t trust Google Chrome’s malware prediction system. If you have purchased an extension to protect your computer from viruses and spyware, it is advisable that you use professional cyber security software for this purpose that plugs into the security system of Google Chrome.
Performance of Google Chrome
Google Chrome is a very fast browser and is used by numerous users and it has a wider range of features than other browsers like Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. This is because of the use of Google Chrome extensions. Google chrome has developed based on the Chromium project which was initially developed for the open-source web browser. The Chromium project was created by working on all open-source projects such as GTK+ and WebKit. Chromium is said to be a fast, lightweight, flexible, and user-friendly browser that supports multiple languages such as Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, Tamil, etc. It is default text editor is Notepad++ which allows great support for syntax highlighting with PHP and HTML5 tags.
