Though the prevalence of a web Browser in our daily lives has somewhat made us overlook its importance. Let’s check out the importance of Chrome.

Few features which back the Chrome browser for dominating the browser market are:

  • The browser is simple to use, has an all-purpose Omnibox and opens up the tabs quickly. The browser allows the user to work on multiple tabs in the most lucid way.
  • Scans your system for any malware, thereby ensuring the system’s security.
  • Offers excellent compatibility and synchronization features.

Despite such spectacular features, most of the Chrome users complain about losing the important web pages while working.

Imagine yourself working on your final year graduation project. Finally, after trawling through a dozen webpages, you bear fruit. You got no idea about how you reached that webpage which would help you add the most precise data to your project, but as they say, All’s Well That Ends Well!

You’re on cloud nine until a hurricane hits you and turns you upside down.

Alas! You lost the Web-page, maybe because either you accidentally closed the tab or Chrome hit you for no clear reason.

RELAX, because it’s not just you but millions like you face the same problem while surfing the Internet. 

Chrome is here at your rescue. The Browser got a great memory and remembers all the webpages you’d been surfing so far.
