I mainly use Chrome 90% of the time for the simple UI design and the pretty icon. I suspect Google is tracking all my traffic through the data saver feature even when I stay signed out of everything. I feel like AI and new features are definitely always on the way. Totally worth it, sometimes I use Samsung browser when things don't load correctly or download. It's always a good feeling to have a plethora of useful Google apps and this is one of the best. Full Review

Thanks, Team Google This is a best browser I ever tried in my life... After using this for a month I started suggesting all of my dear friends to use this..... Overall UI is great received daily 6.8mb update on Android 7.0 strange but no issues to me... Surf speed is great. Download is little weird as it downloads in browser itself instead of downloads app... No much to worry about.. Love to Google from your dear user. ð Have a nice day. Full Review

I used to use FireFox, and was originally very reluctant about switching over. However, after a few weeks with Chrome I never looked back. Lightning fast speeds, a much better designed and far more extensive range of apps, and a very streamlined UI which I personally think has set the standard for all the beautiful new 'flat design' updates which many other companies are starting to adopt. The beauty of Chrome is that it is just as intuitive to your grandmother as it is to your children as it is to you. Full Review

Chrome is by Google. Android is by Google. I can't find anything to open GOOGLE search results in a new tab or even a back button to go back to search results after viewing a result page. Maybe it's an error on my phone but I can't think why/how that would be. How can you have such basic features missing and regard a browser as user friendly? Full Review

Not able to view searched images in fullscreen anymore with this last update. My father was trying to screenshot a chevelle without the title underneath the photo, was not able to, and was forced to visit the site. He recieved a virus. Not directly chromes fault, but if he could view fullscreen he would not have to enter unfamiliar websites. Otherwise the app is great! Full Review

Very poor I'm uninstalling I don't see why the hell you need access to sd content and have permission to delete stuff! Well no thanks I go else where. Be aware people actually read what permissions you are allowing company apps to give them. Plus I doubt if anyone reads reviews anyways... Full Review
Jonathan Lindeque Published date: January 15, 2018
I loved this browser. The latest update I installed has presented some challenges. 1) I was relieved to find that I could undo the "open each tab as an app" setting (Settings > Merge Tabs and Apps). 2) Email urls (I assume those with redirects) no longer open (this may be a new security feature), not even if I refresh the page with the new url - the page remains blank (no additional info on why the page did not load - searching stackoverflow gave some clues). Would be nice if it displayed warning and link? Full Review
Sasori Music Published date: January 14, 2018
Perfect in every way except the lack of a 'Hide status bar' option for Samsung users... I would absolutely love this app to support a full screen mode, if it's possible... Otherwise I can't fault it... Fast, easy to use, reliable... My go-to browser on my phone, the only thing I use the Samsung browser for is the odd full screen reading session Full Review

Honestly I have not used it so although I'm sure it's a wonderful program because the Google I had prior to this was as well. But I I can't pretend that I know it did be better because I have not used it yet. I gave it 5 stars because so far Google has always done me very well. And when I have used the new updated version I will come back and give a thorough review Full Review
Robert Mayberry Published date: January 18, 2018
Good solid browser. Nice and stable and fast. My only complaints are that you can't view local HTML files, and can't change the home page at all. "Don't be evil" indeed. There's no legit user-oriented excuse for this. I'll also add that Chrome remains vulnerable to ads that pull you into other pages unrecoverably. Usually ads served by Google, so they of all people should be able to get this under control. Full Review

Everything is good. Just one thing If you could allow the user to select the download location And ask permission and give the size(details) of the file every time the user downloads anything. Your browser only ask permission for some files please fix it. Please update with these features. Thanks for such good browser. Full Review

This was my go to browser until couple days ago when spam is trying to infiltrate my devices while using Chrome. Uninstalled Terrarium TV and other apps which have stopped working and that may have allowed the breach. Reinstalled using Firefox and apps working fine. Antivirus blocking the attempts but it's too intolerable, so I'm uninstalling Chrome Full Review

On Times of India mobile web page, on long pressing the news links the menu for "open in a new tab" does not pops up. Similarly on long pressing any text it does not gets highlighted to copy it. However, If the news feeds of the Times of India are opened from the chrome suggestions then everything works fine. Full Review

I have recently updated google chrome to the latest version. But since then, i can't open gmail in my browser. It could be easily opened in the earlier version. Now when i sign in to my gmail account, the page keeps loading and never completes. I use Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016). Please tell what to do. Full Review

The Safe Browsing feature/update doesn't work fully. It cannot block random adware (eg. Deloton) that pops out of nowhere, despite no harmful/unexpected user activity or change in default browser settings. Have had to reinstall this browser multiple times recently. Full Review
Shivdatta Patil Published date: January 8, 2018
I like Google Chrome for browsing it supports all desktop and mobile sites. But Downloading in chrome is very tedious task because their is no option that all modern browser have is DOWNLOAD MANAGER When downloading facing many problems 1)where is the location of file 2)Size 3)PAUSE/RESUME 4)downloads history Internet is not thing of only browsing. Full Review
SnakeVirgo Published date: December 19, 2017
I don't get it, this app isn't as good as it used to be. Even my Samsung Internet Browser without updates is working better than this app. Google Images also downgraded since I updated the app; I can't just look at the picture, now I see the picture with the links and stuff at the bottom unless I do some unnecessary zooming Full Review
Cody Wong Published date: December 16, 2017
Google seems to be obsessed with making their apps progressively worse. First Photos, YouTube, now Chrome. It's glitchy, doesn't work, and is useless as an app. Seriously, I figured they were just trying something new or working out bugs but each update is worse than before. With this new update, every webpage you're on reloads if your phone rotates from landscape to vertical. It does this every time which ruins the user experience. Full Review
Simon Cahill Published date: December 15, 2017
Totally unnecessary. Well, I don't like chrome on my pc, it's slow. Tried chrome on my phones, it's slow. Well, what do you know? Google has lied to us, again! Google, I hated android, now I quite like it. Never liked chrome, and the rate you're going, I'm never going to like it. Mozilla has always been there, is open, everyone can use it, it doesn't slow down your phone or pc. Chrome, on the other hand, is new, it slows your pc down and it does the same to your phone. Fix that, and I'll maybe start using it. Full Review
Steve Farris Published date: January 18, 2018
Chrome 63 update is really slow loading. Pages won't load or if they do load the blue load bar show's it's still loading. Done everything to fix it. But hasn't worked. Just want the chrome that use to work great before. Being I have a Android phone that has chrome I would think that it would work as intended. Please fix chrome so we may be able to use it again. Thanks Full Review

The new update puts the address bar and other settings below its annoying and gets in the way . When I type im often pressing it bu mistake and going to random websites . There should never be any pressable items on the bottom this is where the keyboard comes up. Move it back to the top please. Full Review
Published date: January 9, 2018
This is garbage. Please buy Firefox. Back button doesn't take back to back page but refreshes the existing page. And downloads are the biggest con so far. Literary fails all the time. And if you were user friendly. You would allow us to download using third party apps like adm. And an option to disable news feed. Full Review
Abir Hasan Published date: December 24, 2017
Really I'm impressed with the latest update. The adress bar at the bottom is dope, it has become such a good looking browser now. But chrome is so big, i wish if the developers could have reduced it's size. Download is still weird though, it doesn't even ask for permission. I hope Google will stop this automatic download process. Full Review
Wasi Khan Published date: January 4, 2018
This browser is so fast compare with opera browser... But some cons are it freezes in highly traffic website.. Web pages also crash everytime, download manager is not available, Download speed is too much slow. Night mode is not available Full Review
A Google User Published date: December 24, 2017
Samsung Galaxy S III I made the mistake of updating it the last update. It won't go to any websites. It says I'm offline but I have 4G and all my other apps work fine. I also liked the refresh button on the search bar. I use Chrome multiple times a day please fix it! Full Review
Gemstone Wolf Published date: December 18, 2017
This app was great until the 63 update. The new address bar and such is really annoying to use and see in general. I prefer the opening of a blank page when you hit the plus icon, since it was much easier to hide my other pages and get around in general. Maybe make it possible to switch between layouts in settings? Full Review
Umang Vanani Published date: December 26, 2017
I am disappointed with no ads block options and i loose to much money because of the ads fraud done by network operator, they charge money for clicking ads which i am not aware and informed at all what is that.. really disappointed, UC browser is well supporte ad blocking, worth for use. Our safety is greater there Full Review
Ben Goatboy Waters Published date: January 5, 2018
Was superb until I got a new Sony Xperia XZ1 with Android Oreo out of the box and it updated Chrome without asking me, coz I've been avoiding the update, and it turns out I was right to! On so many sites the screen just goes BLACK, jet black, and no amount of refreshing or pressing the back button will do anything. PLEASE, PLEASE can you please sort this buggy and glitchy update out? Thanks. I'm passionate about it because Chrome is the BEST mobile AND Windows Internet Browser, PERIOD. HAPPY NEW YEAR, and regards, Ben ð Full Review

Update: New update fixes previous fails. Back to Chrome love. Four stars. Recent update and navbar relocation is terrible. Mobile pages require upward scrolling, which is to say starting from the bottom and moving up, so if you put the navbar there, I'm constantly accidentally dragging it up when I'm trying to scroll. Seeking new browser. This is an unnecessary, utterly superficial forced alteration that should have been an option. Uninstalled. Update: chose Opera. Glad I did. Full Review
Archit Pyne Published date: December 22, 2017
It was great till you decided to remove the video download feature! This was the only browser I used till your last update. Now I can't seem to be able to download videos off Facebook! Previously I could long press a video and several options would pop out and you could download the video. Why are you downgrading your apps Google?! Full Review
Drazen Bjelovuk Published date: January 2, 2018
Terrible image scaling As with the desktop version, the default behavior for oversized images should be to scale down and fit either vertically or horizontally depending on their aspect ratio. As it is now, large images are displayed at 100%, and you're prevented from zooming out to anything less than that. Full Review
Nathan Cabrera Published date: January 18, 2018
Until I'm able to download ad ons especially ad block for chrome I'll be using the samsung browser. The mobile advertising while not really chrome's fault are extremely annoying. I don't mind ads bc things have a cost but redirecting me to malware looking sites is on my nerves. Full Review
Jumanji Pandasaur Published date: December 26, 2017
The change to move the address bar has no permanent alternative, and it's very anti-user. If you make a change that significant, you need to give the option to use the older setting. Some people aren't comfortable with the new setting, and the reviews recently show that. Just give us a permanent option to use the old setting. Till then, I'm downloading another browser Full Review
nobody ! Published date: January 1, 2018
It doesn't block those pop ups that say "Your phone has a virus" the ones that redirect you to some random site. ITS SO ANNOYING. I CAN EVEN DO WHAT I WANT FOR A MINUTE WITHOUT IT SHOWING UP. please FIX IT Full Review
Mr Jones Published date: January 12, 2018
OK Goggle is alright. For some reason it only works when gobbling my data. It doesn't tell me why my WiFi will not stay at a steady rate. Won't disclose WiFi data settings so I could match my router to its picky connection. Full Review
Simon Fuller Published date: December 16, 2017
Hey developers! Why don't you put the menus where my thumb resides? You know, at the bottom of any device. Nevermind, the new Edge browser got it right first time out. See you when you do the same and make it usable for one hand. Full Review
Uriah Jackson Published date: January 12, 2018
With each update it becomes less stable. Today it forced an update by blocking the in app menu with an update selection. This newest version fails to load pages constantly, interferes with keyboard operation, and is in all senses a step down. At this rate one may as well use the Canary build, as it can't be much less stable. Full Review
Nick E Published date: December 31, 2017
You have to tap twice to access your bookmarks. The best browsers require only one tap for that. It can't seem to play MP4 H.264 video. I have to use Firefox for that (even though it can't play sound). Those are my only complaints. Other than that, fantastic browser. Full Review
Kundan Kumar Chaurasiya Published date: January 10, 2018
Hey there, it's annoying, by turning on the data saver in chrome, it do not help in saving mobile or wifi data. If I browsed about 1.89 GB. This feaure do only save 27 Mb of data. This is not a data saver feature working correctly. It should reduce the quality of images available on the internet. Then it will surely work as data saver. Please include above. Full Review
Shane Stevens Published date: January 11, 2018
the update is horrible, I wish I didn't do it. I have my settings correct and I can't force zoom. I also cannot type in some areas where I should be able to. the cursor is jumping around and some words are being deleted. also the launch page with all this suggested content is wasting my time and data Full Review
