Chrome is about to get way faster

Chrome Crashing Improves
Remember when Chrome was the fastest browser around? I certainly don't, because I deleted it 18 months ago, when it ate all my RAM and crashed OS X for the 17,000th time. It's a shame, because Chrome also has the best extensions and Google integrations. Google knows about its browser's shortcomings, and it looks like a major fix is in the works. Analysis done on the current beta build, Chrome 53, points to a near-50% improvement across the board.

The latest build of its pre-release browser includes a new power saving mode that can increase a laptop's battery life by 50% or even more.

Chrome is on the verge of knocking Internet Explorer out of the top spot

Google Chrome vs Internet Explorer

Is your browser’s private mode actually private?
