Google Chrome

Google Chrome freeware web browser

Google Chrome is a freeware web browser developed by Google and using the WebKit layout engine (later versions will use Blink, a fork of WebKit).

It was released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on September 2, 2008, and as a stable public release on December 11, 2008.

With a constantly increasing worldwide usage, it doesn’t matter that it isn’t the default browser on most devices.

It’s easy to set it as your default web browser on a PC, Mac, or mobile device, so you’re one step away from enjoying a fast and secure experience.

After all, Chrome is known to offer increased protection against malware – which is important on all operating systems.
