Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google and based on the same WebKit layout engine that Apple Inc.'s Safari browser uses, specifically, it uses the open-source code of the Chromium browser. Three types of Chrome browsers are available for download; Chrome stable, Chrome Beta and Chrome Developer edition.

This Chrome browser is not to be confused with Chrome OS, also by Google, or the open-source Chromium browser, which is the basis of Chrome.

Controversy

Privacy

There is some concern that this browser tracks activity and reports it to Google, much as Google's online services and Android system do.[4] To protect their privacy, some people choose alternatives like the SRWare Iron browser instead, since it uses the same engine but offers better privacy.

Politics

Google works with one or more dictatorships to censor search results, so that only what the government wants their citizens to see comes up. Also, they have been caught filtering results in the U.S. and other countries, often to artificially promote their own websites[5][6] but also to match with their political and economic agenda. For these reasons, some people avoid using Google Chrome to avoid giving them further support.
