How To Move From Internet Explorer to Chrome

Why Chrome?

chrome-logoChrome is light and fast and renders websites well. it is used by 57.5% of the population (Internet Explorer is used by 9.7%). It is by far the most popular browser being used.
The complaint for many years has been that Internet Explorer is too closely tied to the Windows operating system and this makes is much more susceptible to malware.

 

How To Move To Chrome

Download Chrome from here, and install it. The first time you fire it up you will see at the top the opportunity to import your bookmarks – it’s that easy!
It will also ask you if you want to make it the default browser. Say yes and any link you click in an email or document will be opened up by Chrome rather than Internet Explorer.

You don’t have to delete Internet Explorer, in fact you can’t! Just let it sit there on the side looking a little forlorn and lonely 🙂
