When it comes to web browsers on PC or smartphone, the first name that comes to mind is Google Chrome. Designed and maintained by Google, the Chrome browser has been setting benchmarks in the web browser race, since its release in 2008.
Initially, people knew the Chrome browser to be one of the fastest in the market, and the fact that it had the Google tag in its name, evoked a sense of confidence and trust in users’ minds. Google has done a great job of developing the Chrome browser through the years, empowering it with new upgrades, features, and enhancements, to stay on top of the competition.
When you buy a new PC (Either Windows or Mac), the OS boots with a default web browser. In the case of WIndows, it is the Edge browser, while the Mac boots with the Safari browser. However, that has not stopped Google Chrome from making a case for itself.
Today, around 69% of all devices in the world are running the Chrome browser, making it the official king of the web browser market.
Here’s how you can get the latest version of Google Chrome on your PC.
