Today, the “No to Chrome” mood in some people has become increasingly intense, and these people are becoming more organized. On The Website of No to Chrome, its front page reads, “We can no longer pretend that Google is a positive force in the world.” Every Internet user can take a simple first step to make things better. “
It encourages users to look for a better web browser to replace Google Chrome and spread the concept to everyone. “No to Chrome can be seen as a starting point for those who use the Internet to send messages to Google to convey to them that we will not tolerate their disregard for our rights, dignity, democracy, and community attitudes,” he said. “
At the same time, the website’s homepage also details suggestions and tutorials for using a different browser and uninstalling Chrome. And to tell everyone to use the #NoToChrome标签这一选项中, it also meaningfully wrote,… Now you can browse the web instead of being googled.
In addition, the site also gives “other Google traps” tags, such as users detailing problems with other Google products and what they can do, and so on.
In fact, in March of this year, Open Source China published a piece entitled “Do we no longer need Chrome?” article. A decade ago, google Chrome began to fly out when the browser’s main market was still firmly dominated by Microsoft’s IE, the article said.
At the time, Chrome took the top spot in the browser market in a very short period of time with its strong technical foundation, built-in utility tools, and excellent experience. Successfully defeated the single-function, poor interface, running caton, and often encountered crashes and many other problems, but with the Windows system laid down half of the wall and unbridled IE browser, from the Microsoft giant’s hands to help users back to their “network freedom.”
After a decade of development, Chrome today has dominated the Web. However, the ubiquitous Chrome also has some adverse effects. It’s clear that, in some ways, Chrome is starting to look a bit like IE, which somehow controls the way we access the Internet.
Chrome’s dominance has led to concerns that Chrome may, to some extent, lead to the disappearance or disappearance of most other browsers because of inconsequentialness, leaving the market without healthy and healthy competition. Some anti-Chrome sons say that, in addition to feeling that Chrome is influencing the market, they also feel that Chrome is too commercial and more accountable to shareholders than to users. For a combination of reasons, they even think we don’t need Chrome anymore.
Chrome, on the other hand, has not performed as well as it should. At a time when the public is increasingly sensitive to privacy protections, Chrome’s 10th anniversary release in 2018 revealed a privacy crisis about user data. In addition, Google’s move to remove Chrome’s closure of other tabs and hide “https://” and “www” in Chrome 76 has led to growing user dissatisfaction and discussion about the browser. Many people think that installing more extensions on Chrome slowly turns it into a bloated and clumsy web browser.
It’s worth noting that google had to stop launching Chrome 79 for Android, shortly after Google Chrome 79 was officially launched recently because of a big bug. Now, Google has released a new update to its Chrome for Android web browser, announcing a fix for the bug. But even so, the bug has also caused a large number of users’ dissatisfaction.
While Chrome has come under fire, Mozilla Firefox and Apple’s Safari are on the rise, complementing Chrome’s short board in some ways and starting to get a lot of love. Among the suggestions given on The Chrome website are Mozilla Firefox and Apple’s Safari.
However, for all browsers, there are inevitable advantages and disadvantages. Whether Chrome will improve further to retain its position in the future, or mozilla Firefox and Apple’s Safari, remains uncertain.
