Technology Update - May 2013 - Google Chrome
The latest addition to our Public Internet computers is the Google Chrome browser. If you're not familiar with Chrome, it is an Internet browser developed by Google. By many counts, Chrome is now the most widely used browser, besting Mozilla's Firefox and Microsoft's Internet Explorer browsers. The reason that we've added Google Chrome to our Internet computers is in recognition of the reality that no single browser renders every web site 100% correctly. As we've probably all experienced, some web sites just don't look or work right in one browser but work fine in another. Because the Internet browser installed on our Public Internet computers is based on Internet Explorer, the library wanted to add an alternative browser that could be used if a web site or web page didn't load or work correctly in one browser. If you haven't used Google Chrome, you'll find that it has a streamlined interface that's focused on displaying web pages. Our librarians are available to assist you in getting up to speed on using Google Chrome on our public computers.
