A Review of the Google Nexus 7 Tablet

The fact that that Chrome isn’t Internet Explorer also has good and bad points for business. As well as avoiding the frequent crashes Microsoft’s browser is known for, companies that like to avoid Microsoft in general may like to see another alternative, particularly from Google, which can do no wrong in many eyes. But most businesses are immersed in the world of MS applications and development tools. Internet Explorer is not only the default browser of their IT infrastructure, but is required to get full functionality from their other software.

This question of compatibility extends further: the google business reviews buy current version of Chrome is for PC only, and although Google is working on versions for Mac and Linux, this rules Chrome out at the moment for any businesses – including in many creative sectors – that run on these operating systems. Chrome is also not viable if your business runs on ActiveX web applications, as it does not support ActiveX.

Chrome’s user interface has some interesting features which might help employees work faster and smarter. Some reviewers have said it really understands what people want to do with a browser, with features like the ‘Omnibar’ search function, and thumbnail views of the nine most visited sites and recent bookmarks. And when users create a shortcut for a web application, Chrome strips away all of the toolbars and tabs, leaving something that feels much more like a desktop application than the internet. But other features we’ve become used to are not yet included, such as a way to manage bookmarks, a command for emailing links and pages directly from the browser, and even the progress bar to show how much of a web page has loaded.

Chrome is to be admired for its speed, elegance and usefulness. It’s a re-imagining of the browser to reflect the way individuals use the internet, and despite some problems it’s been received well. Companies may consider Chrome too young to even think about switching from Internet Explorer or Firefox just yet, but there’s no doubt business users will be watching with interest to see what Google does next to buff up even more of a shine on its first browser.
