Google Chrome is a freeware Web browser developed, of course, by Google. Chrome is packed with highly convenient features. One great feature is privacy browsing. The browser boasts an incognito mode, which doesn’t track your browsing as you navigate webpages. When a browser in incognito mode is closed, it also deletes cookies and passwords from that session.
Chrome is designed to keep you safer
and more secure with its built-in malware and phishing protection, auto-updates
to make sure you have all the latest security fixes. When
you navigate to a website suspected of phishing or containing malware, the
internet browser displays a warning. Chrome employs something called “sandboxing”
which helps block malware and isolates what happens in one tab from affecting
the others, so once you close a tab, that process is completely terminated. Sandboxing is an effective method for preventing malware from
installing itself on your computer and monitoring your online activities or
stealing personal information.
Chrome also offers the Chrome Web Store which is
an online store from Google. You can install
and run web applications unique to Google Chrome. The store hosts free and paid applications.
