What is Google Chrome?
Google Chrome is a web browser with a clean and simple interface that allows users to customize and modify it to better suit their online activities.
Google Chrome’s features
Google Chrome allows its users to customize and control the user experience to the degree that most other browsers do not, thanks to a large extent to Chrome extensions.
Chrome Extension is a software modifier that can block ads, translate languages, manage the appearance of the browser, and much more.
While on the surface, the Chrome browser may look simple, once customized with plugins, it can be a powerful and easy-to-use tool.
These are Things You Can do with google Chrome on Your Android Device
- Manage notifications from websites
Sites can request notifications to be sent to your device, but it is not always clear how to eliminate this capability later. If you are fed up with a specific site sending you notifications, you can easily turn it off in Chrome settings.
2 Mute the website or block the audio completely
Chrome on Android should block websites from playing audio automatically, but some sites find ways around this (especially for autoplay ads). On the other hand, you might want to block all sites from playing audio, except for a few specific ones.
Chrome allows you to block or allow worldwide audio for all sites and manage exceptions. For example, you can mute one or two sites that are working incorrectly, or prevent anything from playing except for a few sites. To do this, open Chrome Settings and go to Site Settings> Sound. There is a public switch at the top, and you can add additional rules by clicking on the plus button.
- Add more search engines
Chrome for Android, just like almost any other browser, allows you to change the search engine you want to use. However, not everyone knows that you can add options not listed by default – searching on almost any site will make it appear as a search engine option. This includes alternative search engines, shopping sites and many more.
- Zoom in on any website
In many cases, mobile-optimized sites do not allow a user to manually zoom in and out. This can be annoying at best, and harmful to visually impaired users at worst. Fortunately, Chrome includes an override in browser settings.
Simply open Chrome Settings, click “Accessibility” and check the box next to “Enable Enable Zoom.” Now you can enlarge any page!
- Save the pages as PDFs
As mentioned above, Chrome allows you to save pages on your phone for offline viewing. But what if you want to send the saved page to someone, or download it permanently in a format that can be read by other applications? By combining Chrome’s sharing feature with the “PDF Print” function on Android, this can be done without any additional tools.
- Close tabs more quickly
If you want to close the current tab without first opening the tab overview, there is a slightly faster way. Hold down the tabs for a second, and a menu will appear with the option to close the current tab.
- Enable dark mode
On Android 10, Chrome for Android changes its appearance to match the look of your system, but in previous versions, you can only switch themes by going to settings. Click the menu button and select “Settings” then click “Themes”.
Making Chrome a dark theme will not only make the app dark – it also makes websites dark, as long as a dark theme is available. There is also an experimental feature that forces all sites to be dark when dark mode is enabled if you want to give this shot.
8.Download the pages as soon as you are online
If you need access to a specific page but have an intermittent connection, then clicking and holding the reload to get the chance to get the information you need can be incredibly frustrating. Fortunately, Chrome provides a solution.
