Get to Chrome Faster

Chrome browser has often been criticised for consuming excessive computing resource and also for being sluggish at times. Google has been working on improving the speeds and it has now started an informative campaign called the “Get to Chrome Faster.” This campaign is set to educate users on how to make the Chrome default browser of the system.

In all likelihood, the campaign seems to be centred at increasing the Chrome installations on the Windows 10 machines. As we are already aware, Windows 10 comes with Microsoft Edge as the default browser and apparently quite a lot of users don’t know how to change the default browser. The default browser can be changed by heading over to the Settings application but again it’s not that easy for everyone.

Speaking of changing default browsers, in case you’re planning to buy a Windows 10 S laptop, keep in mind that you won’t be able to change the default browser and search engine.

Can Google convince Edge users to switch to Chrome?

‘Get to Chrome Faster’ is a web page that launches itself in the new tab every time the browser is started. The “Get to Chrome Faster” comes with two sections, one to set Chrome as the default browser while the other one is to pin the browser to the Windows taskbar. Furthermore, the web page elucidates on how to change the default browser to Chrome. Strangely enough, the screenshot used for explanation shows the “Microsoft Edge” as the default browser, something that’s not always right.

Well, the confusion looms large as the guide asks Windows users to click on “Microsoft Edge” under the web browser. This is not essentially right as one might have already changed the default browser to say Firefox or maybe Opera.The instructions to pin the Chrome browser are also half-baked. However, the users should not have a problem changing the default browser considering the fact that they have already done it before.

Thankfully the “Get to Chrome faster” promo page doesn’t appear once you click on exit. Technically there is nothing wrong in Google pushing their Chrome browser for the Windows 10 users, however, I just wished that the instructions had been clearer rather than just taking a shot at the Microsoft Edge.
