Why use Google Chrome?

The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer. You spend much of your time online inside a browser: when you search, chat, email, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, you often do all this using a browser.

  • Speed
    Chrome is designed to be fast in every possible way. It's quick to start up from your desktop, loads web pages in a snap, and runs complex web applications lightning fast. Learn more about Chrome and speed.
  • Simplicity
    Chrome's browser window is streamlined, clean and simple, and has features that are designed for efficiency and ease of use. For example, you can search and navigate from the same box and arrange tabs however you wish—quickly and easily.
  • Security
    Chrome is designed to keep you safer and more secure on the web with built-in malware and phishing protection, autoupdates to make sure you have all the latest security fixes, and more. Learn more about Chrome's security features.
  • Signing in
    Signing in to Chrome brings your bookmarks, history, and other settings to all your computers. Just go to the Wrench menu and select “Sign in to Chrome.” Learn more about signing in to Chrome.
  • And more features
    Chrome has many useful features built in, including automatic full-page translation and access to thousands of apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store. Learn more about Chrome's most-loved features.

As usual, our ongoing internal security work responsible for a wide range of fixes:

Many of the above bugs were detected using AddressSanitizer.

As we’ve previously discussed, Chrome will now offer to remember and fill password fields in the presence of autocomplete=off. This gives more power to users in spirit of the priority of constituencies, and it encourages the use of the Chrome password manager so users can have more complex passwords. This change does not affect non-password fields.

A partial list of changes is available in the SVN log. Interested in switching release channels? Find out how. If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug.
