Google Chrome is the world’s most popular browser, and that’s hardly a surprise. It’s fast, features many useful tricks, and supports plenty of useful extensions that can improve the internet surface experience. Chrome is also terribly annoying, to the point where I’ve been looking to ditch it for years. It’s a resource hog and can significantly impact battery life on laptops. As I’m typing these words, my MacBook’s fans have gone into action, a sign that Chrome is consuming way too many resources. These are problems that Google vowed to fix over and over, with the latest such promises coming in just earlier this year.
