Browsers are the medium through which the internet is accessed. Many popular browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and others claim themselves to be the best.

However, all of them have their merits and demerits; none of them is perfect. Google Chrome is the most used web browser globally because of the flexibility and advanced features it provides to the users. However, despite that, Chrome is not flawless. It comes with a few bugs and settings that might irritate some users. Other than that, some people might not agree with the terms and conditions of its Privacy Policy.
