“alternative web browser ”

Written on: 09/12/2014 by Bella_C (2 reviews written)

I am not a big fan of Google chrome. But still I use it occasionally. It is slower than Firefox and take more time to load. But it comes very handy for some web sites. So I recommend it as an alternative web browser… Read Full Review

“What's happened to it? Stick to Firefox. It's less hassle.”

Written on: 27/08/2014

Used to be great. I'm on an iMac, and now all I'm getting from Chrome is 'resolving host, 'connecting', time outs, and a new one today; 'waiting for available socket'. As said, it used to work perfectly, now it seems to work only when it feels like it. I've got the latest version installed, so cannot update further. I now won't use it and have gone back to Firefox. At least that works properly. What I like about it? It used to work. What I don't like? It's awful now.Wouldn't recommend this to… Read Full Review

“Problems with Chrome”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by Jazlene12 (1 review written)

I have just spent 2 days 'spring cleaning' my computer. That means getting rid of all the annoying glitches that creep in over the months. I am left with an annoying 'Run As' Box which kept loading. This started a few months ago - coinciding with loading a garmin map application. But this turned out to be Chrome. 1. The shortcut is not set to 'Run As' mode! 2. The prompt doesn't say which program is requiring elevated permissions! 3. The extensions are greyed out and only enable when I… Read Full Review

“RUBBISH!”

Written on: 09/08/2014 by Princesso80 (1 review written)

Google chrome used to be quite good but is now the worst of the bunch. It crashes all the time , freezes and can be very slow. The crashing is worst of all when working on a few open pages and have to close them all down and start again. For a company the size of google this is horrendous, I would recommend people don't even bother with chrome, maybe use firefox or even IE… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service”

Written on: 27/03/2014 by JosiahKeegan34 (1 review written)

Utility Wise recently helped us to change our provider and offered an excellent service. They were very patient and informative. We are very busy and my partner is Deaf and they were very considerate and allowed us time to consider what we wanted and we are very happy with the outcome, hoping that the bills are going to reflect this. Can't fault their service, thoughtfulness and information… Read Full Review

“Not quite garbage but very close.”

Written on: 24/03/2014 by Ross163 (1 review written)

It looked neat and promised great things: speed, safety, versatility, the Google name. In reality it is slow, cumbersome, and refuses to download al all some files and sites. Every "improvement" made things worse. Tried it for 6 months but now gone back to Firefox. I wouldn't touch it again and now refuse to accept any app or file that is in any way connected to Chrome. Treat it like a virus. It's hard to believe that Google produced something so flawed… Read Full Review

“From Firefox to Crome to Firefox”

Written on: 30/10/2013

Got seduced by the shiny new browser called Chrome and got addicted, but like other addictions, it's not exactly a good thing. Problems with Flash, problems with speed, problems with extensions, lack of options etc etc. The biggest problems I had with Chrome were surprisingly two other products made by Google, YouTube and Search. Youtube would grind to a halt on many occasions, yet would be running without any issues in Firefox at the same time. And Search generally worked on a basic level, but… Read Full Review

“Used to be great”

Written on: 13/10/2013

Used to be fast, reliable and just fit for purpose, then with every upgrade it got slower and buggier. After version 30 I gave up on it and simply ditched it for Opera, now I am not looking back. I know Opera's engine is based on Chrome but it's just hugely faster and more reliable. I think Chrome is trying to become an operating system, but the current experience is very poor. Such a different browser from the first versions, more like some bloatware than anything else… Read Full Review

“Very slow to download at times”

Written on: 30/01/2013 by fozzywozzydodah (1 review written)

When I first changed from IE to Chrome I was very impressed.I loved the fact you could download some really good games. That was about a year ago, now I find it won't download Hotmail and it is slow to download some info sites and getting into my bank is a nightmare. When I switch back to IE everything is perfect. I have no idea what is going on but I won't be using Chrome any more… Read Full Review

“Rubbish!!!”

Written on: 21/12/2012

I installed it a couple of years ago. Initially all was fine but then GC started slowing down, and I went back to IE (which was at that stage faster). Yesterday, I succumbed to the pop up message telling me everyday that my version of IE is old and unsupported,and I downloaded GC again. I had the 'empty message/no data sent out' as soon as I started using it. I was checking some details on the www.rac.co.uk and half way through I could not access the website. I looked up some forums and it… Read Full Review

“Fast, Sleek, Great.”

Written on: 02/11/2012 by harryjamesuk (3 reviews written)

Chrome is a fantastic browser! It's got a nice look and feel, many apps, easy to use (Though from those moving from IE, a bit of getting used too is required at first), many websites work great and has lots of features packed in! Auto-Updating for security, sandboxing and they're just two! There's a whole range I could talk on and on about forever! Much better than IE for sure! Never moving back!… Read Full Review

“The best of the three browsers I have on my PC”

Written on: 05/05/2012 by JayZeeRay (2 reviews written)

It is the fastest of the three browsers I have on my PC (the other two are Firefox and IE). It is generally very easy to use, has easy navigation and tweaking options. I like pretty much everything about it except for the fact that it doesn't always work as it should. This is probably due to issues with certain websites being incompatible with Chrome, but I find myself resorting to IE at least a couple of times a week. It is usually issues with websites not displaying correctly in Chrome or… Read Full Review

“Still rate Mozilla Firefox higher”

Written on: 30/12/2011 by janciejackson (2 reviews written)

Chrome may have overtaken the market as the most used browser but I still tend to rate Mozilla Firefox higher. True that Chrome has plenty of features and also loads far more quickly than Firefox but the truth is that it also contains a lot of bugs and thus tends to crash more times than Firefox. Moreover I love the addons of Firefox much more than Chrome. Maybe I tend to use Firefox more than Chrome and hence the bias but Chrome too is a good browser and hence I have decided to give it a… Read Full Review

“I expected more from Google”

Written on: 25/07/2011 by brutalhonesty (2 reviews written)

I was thrilled at the thought of Google coming up with their own internet browser, but it was until I downloaded and installed it in my PC. I always thought Google had sort of a Midas touch, where everything they work on is an instant hit and turns to gold standard - not Chrome browser! The look is sleek and it is very easy to use, but that's not the most important thing of a web browser, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO BROWSE THE INTERNET! It gets stuck if you open web-pages with flash content, or… Read Full Review
