We are spoilt for choice today when choosing a default Web browser. With excellent options available such as Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, it’s genuinely a matter of personal taste that decides which one you apply.
That said, more than 310 million Web surfers (that’s almost 40% of the total market share) all opt for Google Chrome presently, and for a good reason. Most Steamers also use Google Chrome as it’s quick and easy to migrate to Chrome on all devices powered by Android, Mac, and Windows. Chrome is omnipresent due to its robust features, expansive extension possibilities, and dedicated mobile apps.
Okay, so now that we know why Chrome is such a firm favorite, we can get down to the business of managing the non-stop and disturbing onslaught of notifications. We understand how disruptive it can be if you’re busy with a significant attack in your favorite game, and Chrome feels it’s necessary to tell you that you have to run a security check. As if you don’t know it already, right?
