Why Google Chrome is better than Internet Explorer - Chrome vs IE

It’s been more than a year I’m using Chrome and never wanted to go back to days of IE. I have recommended this to many friends and they had similar experience

Why I like or feel Chrome is better? Here are the reasons that I have explored so far (comparing Chrome 23 with IE 8)

1) Chrome is lightweight and fast

I can feel the difference while launching the browsers: - IE have a lag and it’s very bad in my office due to so many restriction rules written, entire browser hangs up). Auto-complete feature is awesome in Chrome and we can customize this with any search engines. See the results in 2 browsers when typing “fl”

In Chrome

In IE 8


Chrome is powerful while booking railway tickets. All Indians who have traveled in train will know how difficult to get TATKAL tickets since millions connect at the same time. Though I don’t have any proof or know the reason, Chrome is better for TATKAL tickets (Go to Settings – Advanced Settings – Disable “Predict network actions to improve page load performance”). Chrome will wait for longer time to get the page rather than giving 403 errors


Print – Chrome allows me to download as PDF, while IE gives me no-printer error (very helpful when i dont have printer with me)

2) Tabs & copy text

These are 2 small but useful features

Tabs in chrome can be easily separated from main window, no need to start a new window. 

Copy text - Its very easy to copy a part of text from paragraph in Chrome :- select the text and press right arrow to highlight and this does not work in IE

3) Favorites / Bookmarks

This is my one of the favorite feature in Chrome. Adding to bookmark is very easy – click on star icon on the top of the page. Once bookmarked, the yellow star will be shown in Chrome. There is no way to know a bookmarked page in IE. The bookmark manager interface is also really cool in Chrome

4) Downloads

Another unique feature, all downloads can be viewed and managed in single window. Even we can pause the individual file downloads and prioritize. Also I can set the destination folder to avoid the target confirmation on each download



5) Multiple Account

You can add multiple Google accounts and manage all personal data including history, bookmarks etc. I explored this feature after hearing regular complaint from my wife about difficulties in using IE.

Steps to add and switch account 

1) Click on top right icon and go to Settings
2) Navigate to Users tab
3) Click on Add New User - enter Google account name and password
User icon will be visible on left top corner


4) Select the icon to switch to different account


6) Incognito window

Good one if you want to browse without leaving history behind

7) Web store

Unique feature – can play games like angry birds, cut the rope by visiting Chrome web store and adding them to my browser


Chrome is dong well in smartphones too - it was one of the top downloads in Apple store after the launch. Its compatible in Android 4.0 + devices and loving it in my tab 

So, that’s my experience. Have you tried Chrome and felt the same difference? Or did you find more useful features of Chrome? Feel free to write your comments… Thanks for reading

    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance. I must say you have done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

  10. Right now it seems like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right
    now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?
