Google's fast and stable web browser.Antony Peel
The war for the control of the browser market was waged for a long time by Microsoft and Mozilla, with Internet Explorer and Firefox as their greatest weapons. And this battle continued until Google barged in to offer us Google Chrome and turn it into the undeniable leader of the web browsers.
The secret of its success
Google intended to apply three basic principles to its product: simplicity, speed and stability. That's how Google Chrome has become a high-performance browser without any complications for the user thanks to its minimalistic design, being the first browser to incorporate concepts as interesting as the independency of processes opened in tabs. On the other hand, its minimum data consumption makes it incredibly fast when it comes to loading any webpage.

A window to the Google universe
But Google Chrome isn't just a browser as it allows us to sign in as a user of Google's services. This means that we'll have access to and integration with this company's tools and utilities, such as Google+, Maps, Play Store or Drive. But furthermore, as an additional feature, signing in as a user allows us to have our bookmarks, applications, history and other settings wherever we want or need.
The fastest and most stable web browser.
An example of simplicity
And if we want simplicity and easiness when it comes to browsing, referring to Chrome is a must. All the elements of its design have been duly studied, removing outdated controls and adapting all its functions to a much faster and intuitive browsing experience. For example, the toolbar, search bar and address bar have disappeared to integrate into Omnibox, space from where we can carry out any action.
If you want to make the most of your Internet browsing experience, the solution is quite simple, just download Google Chrome.
