Google Chrome is the fastest free web browser available today.

Google Chrome is a free browser for all operating systems and devices, offering one of the securest, fastest experiences available today. With Chrome you’ll be able to browse all of your favorite websites, keep up to date on social media, protect your privacy and more – and all with a few taps of your finger.

One of the greatest features of this browser is that it’s designed for modern touch interfaces, and the latest version of Autofill remembers and fills all forms fast. You’ll also be able to use the “Touch to Search” function to do more with your searches, helping you find things faster without having to peck and poke at a screen.

The latest version of Google Safe Browsing locks down your device and helps you avoid malicious popups, adware, and other processes that can compromise your security and anonymity. We love that the new redesigned history page allows you to selectively scrub your browsing history or just wash it all away in a few clicks.

While this browser is pretty good (and free!) it’s important to point out that it does have some flaws. Since Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Google Chrome has stopped all support for Adobe Flash. If you’re browsing websites like HBOgo you won’t be able to watch streaming video; you can always download apps for most Flash and Silverlight sites however and get around this.

Google Chrome also lacks a built-in VPN option that other browsers like Opera (which is built on Chrome) offer. If you want to completely anonymize your browsing habits, you might want to find another browser or purchase private VPN service on your own.

Aside from a lack VPN and support for Flash, Google Chrome has a lot to offer people that want a fast and free way to browse the web. If you want something that’ll run perfectly on your touch-enabled tablet or phone, on your laptop or PC, you’ll definitely want to check out this browser and see how you like it!

Pros

  • Improved Browsing on Every Device The latest version of Chrome has been optimized to run faster and lighter on virtually every device – even Android wearables.
  • Stay Secure with Safe Browsing Safe Browsing is an option that helps you avoid being infected by malicious code while browsing online, annoying popups and more.
  • View Webpages and Videos Offline Now you can save web pages, videos, pictures and more for viewing later even if you don’t have an internet connection.

Cons

  • No Built-In VPN Option Unlike some other free browsers out there, Chrome doesn’t have a built-in VPN or anonymizer option (though you can hide your history on your device by going Incognito)
  • No Flash Support Google stopped supporting Flash some time ago, so you’ll want to take that into consideration before you install.
