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

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

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. ???? Have a nice day. Full Review

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

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

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

I thought updates was supposed to make things better, not worse. Every single update this thing gets worse and worse, lagging, slow and shutting down unexpectedly, last count it shut down 15 times in 5minutes. I've used Google for as long as I can remember, not anymore and I think there will be many others who will be doing the same as well. Full Review

Have been using Chrome for years with no problem. Today there was an update and now it takes forever (if it doesn't 'time out') to open a Web page. What went wrong ? An unnecessary update without checking if it works? Full Review

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

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

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

Noticeable small but annoying glitches in recent versions. Feels like I'm watching a game of Whack-a-mole with each update. Bugs fixed only to have new bugs appear elsewhere. ERR_QUIC_PROTOCOL_ERROR randomly appearing in some webpages including non Google sites, still unresolved. Also, Loading bar sometimes doesn't disappear when page fully loads. Tried debugging some pages via USB debugging / remote. Debug mode shows the pages are fully loading (loading bar disappears), but chrome on Android still shows incompleted loading bar. Full Review

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

Not a good browser... UI and UX both need improvement. Most other browsers are faster than chrome and they even load pages in new tabs without you having to supervise them them. Once a link is opened in new tab you have to switch to it for it to start loading in chrome. Other than this there are some other minor things that just tick you off every once in a while.

Chrome is a big fat slow slug since the latest update of Android operating system and Chrome updates. I have lost count of the number of times I have been getting the EXTREMELY ANNOYING "Oh Snap....something went wrong with loading your page....reload?" Simply because I CLOSED a single Tab!!!!!! Hopefully Firefox will be superior to chrome then I won't ever have yo use it and half the useless Google bloatware that Google forces users to have of their devices. People should,d be able to choose to accept or reject unwanted useless low performing bloatware from Google LLC Full Review

Mike, Moto e running 6, Moto e running 5.1 Sony tablet S running 4.0.3 This runs ok, BUT, this app Still lacks a STOP DOWNLOADING button. It also doesn't support plugins, so you can't add an advert blocker. Chrome badly needs PLUGIN SUPPORT and a stop downloading button. (Yes Google, I'm shouting these things. Please add one.) On a Chromebook, chrome is great, on a cellphone it's not so good due to lack of features like plugins. Full Review

This is ok. I'm mad that the action bar was moved to the bottom. Who thought this was a good idea? Also, please please put back the option for the keyboard to have learned words. I'm tired of typing the wrong words and having to go back and retype them. I'm a fast typer, but I type it wrong, mostly because of the tiny spacebar at the bottom. Please fix! Full Review

What were you thinking with this update? You move the URL bar to the bottom with no optional setting for those of us who liked it at the top? No home button any more, which I use all the time. Bookmarks aren't all showing, and they're no longer in the order I intentionally put them in. This is a big fail IMO. Changing my 4 star rating to 2. PUT IT BACK. Full Review

The recent update sucks! Toolbar that pops up from bottom of screen, so stupid. The person who came up with that and everyone who thought it was a good idea should be sacked. Great way to drive away users by making stupid updates. Installed Firefox and I'm much happier now. Full Review

Works and is better on Android than most other browsers but not by much. It can sync your passwords and bookmarks but don't think for one minute that there is a bookmark bar or a speed dial. Very clunky when compaired to the windows version. Full Review

I was loving the new layout until the latest update removed the small arrow shaped expand button for Chrome Home, which is now only accessible via swiping. This is a problem on my device as my phone's stock UI also uses the bottom of the screen for swiping up important functions. I'll now have to go back to using the old Chrome view - without the Home feature. Full Review

Ok I'm getting a little mad at Google right now. I go to search images and instead of just seeing the photo I see that website URL thing at the bottom. I would just like to be the image. Plus most of the updates are completely unnecessary and extremely annoying. I see no improvements from what it was before. Full Review

I dislike the "personal" gestures of chrome on the front page "enjoy your evening" for example. It's too weird and it's even close to lunacy. Besides that Chrome is a great tool and I like Google. If the people who make chrome wanna make friends with me they can come to my house for coffee. Full Review

Big disappoint. Too much ads allows and generated in this browser. Should have video cast and extations, a spetialy ad blocker. It is now not a internet browser it is adds generator spy. Functionally way ahead of competitors. My suggestion switch to more user-friendly browser. Full Review
