Heather Betts HELPS US STAY TECH SAVVY


Surfing the Internet with Google Chrome keeps all other settings neatly filed in one drop down list (the three horizontal lines on the far right hand side of the address bar). Here you can print, view your history, set the Home Page or save a page. It’s Fast with Built in Security The speed of Google Chrome has always been a positive point compared to other browsers. Chrome is also designed to keep you safer and more secure on the web with built-in malware and phishing protection. It auto-updates to make sure you have all the latest security fixes and


ost people spend a high proportion of their computer time on the Internet. Whether it’s


shopping at Amazon, looking up a train timetable or paying a bill, it seems we simply can’t live without our connection to the web. We all use a “browser” to get online – a piece of software that enables us to surf the Internet. This might be Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari. Many people are still using Internet Explorer – but did you know that you can install and use any of these browsers? The good news is they are all free! According to the latest statistics from Statcounter, almost 40% of people worldwide use Google Chrome. With that in mind, here’s a quick tour of Google Chrome and how to install it on your computer. It’s Simple! We like Google Chrome for its simplicity. You have one long address bar running across the top of the screen. You can use this to type in a web address or use it as a Google search box. This by itself is a great time saver – it removes the need to go to the Google website to run a search for information. Easy to Use Bookmarks and Settings To bookmark a page, simply click on the star at the end of the address bar. We also like the fact that Chrome


has Adobe Flash Player built in. Try it, its Free! You can download and install Google Chrome at www. google.co.uk/chrome. Click on the blue button “Download Chrome” and on the next screen click “Accept and Install”. Then follow the on screen instructions. If you don’t like it, then simply don’t use it. It’s always handy to have 2 different browsers – if you have a problem with one browser then you can always access the Internet with the other!
