Google Chrome is omnipresent — phones, laptops or tablet — and is by far the most used internet browser in the world. Chrome commands almost 70% market share ahead of other browsers. Despite its vast popularity, Chrome isn’t flawless and has its fair share of cons as well. There are aspects in which other browsers fare better than Chrome and if you are looking to replace Google’s browser with others, here are some fine alternatives.
