Why is Google Chrome better than Internet Explorer?

In Italy, the most used browser to surf the internet is Google Chrome, with more than 40% of users in the last 6 months (according to the StatCounter findings).
The record that Chrome has achieved in Italy is quite clear, so much so that the second most used browser in Italy is more than 15 points apart and stands at 25% and it is Internet Explorer.
The others are even more detached, with Firefox less and less used at 19%, Safari used by iPad and iPhone users at 9 and then the others with very low percentages.
Although Internet Explorer is pre-installed on Windows PCs, the fact that it is second and most used by Firefox is surprising because IE, compared to other browsers, is only available on Windows PC (while Chrome and Firefox can be installed on Android, iOS, Mac, Linux etc) and then because IE10 is only available for Windows 7 and Windows 8, losing all the slice of XP users.
These statistics lead us to introduce a really interesting discussion that aims to answer the trivial, but very complex question that a reader asked me: Why Chrome is better than Internet Explorer "> guide to Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8 and 7 to discover the merits and defects of this browser, however significantly improved in Windows 8.1 with Internet Explorer 11.
Even Google Chrome in Windows 8 can be opened in the application version and in the options menu you can start Chrome in Windows 8 mode even if I find it much more limited.
3) Speed ​​and compatibility
Most browsers are compatible with the latest web standards.
As we have seen in the experiments for Google Chrome, Google has shown how you can play on the PC using the smartphone as a controller, in a very futuristic way (with an application like Cheapcast you can navigate from the TV using the smartphone as a wireless remote control).
As for speed we are there, everyone is fast, even if Chrome has something more (see the browser speed test between Chrome, Firefox, IE10 and Opera ).
4) Security and Privacy
A recent study has shown that Internet Explorer 10 is significantly safer than Chrome and much stronger at blocking malware (see Softpedia).
Internet Explorer also protects privacy much better than Google Chrome, which instead suffers the interference from Google, who always wants to know everything about how people surf the web.
Read the guide to monitoring protection and smartscreen filter in IE to see in practice how the Microsoft browser provides itself with all the necessary security without using external plugins.
Google Chrome, for its part, has the function of blocking the sites where Google has detected malware, preventing you from browsing completely.
5) Extras, expandability and extensions
Chrome is the most expandable browser there is, even more than Firefox, thanks to the numerous extensions, applications and scripts that can be installed.
With the extensions Chrome can do anything and even manages to become a complete work tool, a mini operating system inside Windows that incorporates everything necessary to use a computer.
Internet Explorer doesn't have many extensions, but it integrates better in the Windows 7 and Windows 8 taskbar.
Chrome is better than Internet Explorer if:
- The translation of a web page is often used;
- Favorites are synchronized between PC and smartphone (Internet Explorer does this only with Windows 8 and Windows Phone)
- Google web applications such as Gmail, Blogger, Google+, Google Docs, Maps, Drive are used.
- You want to monitor the reception of mail in Gmail or other indicators.
- You are not a privacy observer.
Conversely, if you only use Windows 8 or Windows 7 PCs, Internet Explorer 10 is an excellent choice, equivalent to Chrome and Firefox, safer and, even if with fewer functions, more suitable for users less able with the computer.
