GOOGLE CHROME 4 FEATURES
"Tabs and Stability - Chrome is built for stability. If an individual tab freezes or crashes, the other tabs are unaffected. You can also arrange your tabs however you wish - quickly and easily."
"Safe Browsing - Chrome will show you a warning message before you visit a site that is suspected of containing malware or phishing. A phishing attack takes place when someone masquerades as someone else to trick you into sharing personal or other sensitive information with them, usually through a fake website. Malware, on the other hand, is software installed on your machine, often without your knowledge, and is designed to harm your computer or potentially steal information from your computer. With Safe Browsing technology enabled in Chrome, if you encounter a website suspected of containing phishing or malware as you browse the web, you will see a warning page like the one below"
"Google Chrome Extensions - Extensions are little programmes which add useful features to your browser. Extensions can provide useful alerts and notifications, let you access your favourite web apps or news sources easily and improve the ease of online tasks such as browsing photos, getting directions or shopping."
"Translation in the browser - Chrome is the first browser to incorporate machine translation in the browser itself, without requiring additional plug-ins or extensions. When the language on the web page does not match the language preferences set in the browser, Chrome will automatically ask to translate the web page into your preferred language. Learn more about setting language preferences in Chrome or using the translation feature in Chrome."
"Themes - Customise your browser with themes from artists around the world. Learn more about adding themes to the browser or preview a few Chrome artist themes."
"Omnibox - Use the Omnibox to type both web addresses and searches in Chrome."
"New Tab page - Visit your favourite websites easily from the New Tab page. When you open a new tab, the sites that you visit most often are readily available."
"Incognito mode - When you don't want your website visits to be recorded in your browser history, you can browse in incognito mode. (A handy feature for planning surprise gifts and birthdays!)"

"Instant Web Site ID - Want to be extra sure about a site's legitimacy before you make a purchase? Click on a site favicon for an instant identity overview. Another click digs deeper: how many times have you visited? Are your passwords saved? Check up on suspicious sites, avoid Web forgeries and make sure a site is what it claims to be."
"Private Browsing - Sometimes it's nice to go undercover. When this feature is enabled, you won't leave a single browsing fingerprint behind for others to discover. You can slip in and out of private browsing mode quickly, so it's easy to return to what you were doing before as if nothing ever happened (you can also browse privately all the time). It's great if you're doing your online banking on a shared computer or checking email from an Internet café."
"Anti-Malware - Firefox protects you from viruses, worms, trojan horses and spyware. If you accidentally access an attack site, it will warn you away from the site and tell you why it isn't safe to use."
"Anti-Phishing - Shop and do business safely on the Internet. Firefox gets a fresh update of web forgery sites 48 times in a day, so if you try to visit a fraudulent site that's pretending to be a site you trust (like your bank), a browser message big as life will stop you."
"Outdated Plug - Some web pages require that you install small applications called plugins to watch videos, play games or view documents. These plugins are written by other companies, and it can be hard to make sure they're always up to date. Since outdated plugins are a security risk, Firefox will let you know when you have a plugin that's vulnerable to attack and direct you to the right site to get the updated."
"Pop-Up Blocker - Banish pop-ups (and pop-under windows) from your surfing experience once and for all. Or, find a happy medium choose to view blocked pop-ups or create an allow list of sites whose pop-ups you're okay with seeing."
