Google Chrome Web Browser

Google Chrome is the most popular web browser in use today. It is highly regarded for its speed, simplicity, security & privacy, customization and the ability to log into your own personalized browser, on any computer with Chrome installed, using your username and password. This is useful for logging into a computer and having all of your bookmarks and extensions available. If you currently use the web browsers Microsoft Internet Explorer or Apple Safari it is recommended that you consider switching to Google Chrome.
