Come fromTechradarUsers of the websiteMatt HansonAccording to the blog, Google is forcing it to move to Firefox or Edge browsers. Matt Hanson believes that:

To be honest, I thinkChrome's great success was its greatest failure.。 Google has such a huge market share for web browsers (Google has 70% market share in browser usage), which leads to more or less complacency. The company doesn't have to work as hard to advertise Chrome to users as it did at the beginning. That's why I'm afraid the company has stopped innovating on Chrome.

Matt Hanson tells us that after a few hours of using Chrome, Chrome browser will occupy a lot of computer memory, which is also related to his use of browser, he will install many extensions on Chrome, and usually open many tabs.

What are the options besides Chorme?

Matt Hanson believes that one of the most satisfying answers is Firefox, which has caused some users to be dissatisfied with Google's recent changes to Chrome. For Firefox, Mozilla has a broad positive response to its changes in the community. However, according toFirefox statisticsExplain that Firefox user activity has a downward trend.

fromSnazzIf Mozilla wants to get rid of this situation, it needs to take some actions, such as getting rid of Google as their default search engine, which is not only for user privacy, but also for diversified financing. In addition, privacy protection is a big advantage of Firefox over Chrome. Just released recentlyFirefox 69By default, trace protection is enabled to prevent third parties from tracking cookies.


In terms of privacy protection, Google can't compare with its competitors. It can't hurt its lucrative advertising business. On August 22, Google wrote an articleBowen"Blocking cookies indiscriminately may damage publishers'income sources and consumers' interests," China said. Browser privacy has become an important factor in differentiating Google from its competitors in the browser market.

In contrast, a spokesman for Mozilla, when asked about its impact on publishers, said that it had studied with media organizations before deciding to introduce the change:

Although this has a negative impact on revenue, publishers see it as a short-term problem. Many publishers have responded to anti-tracking technology by saying that they are developing alternatives to targeted advertising based on personal information. Essentially, they believe that privacy is in their long-term strategic business interests.

Another option isMicrosoftEdge, whose predecessor, Internet Explorer, may be disgusted by most users, coupled with lack of features and limited extension support, has never been regarded as a daily Web browser. However, not long ago Microsoft officially launched the Edge beta based on Chromium. The Edge browser uses Chromium as its core. Microsoft seems to have made a Chrome alternative. It provides some basic functions and functions of Chrome, as well as extended support.

After using the new Edge, Matt Hanson found many things to like. For example, all passwords saved from Chrome will be in Edge, and a better tab structure is necessary for many people.
