Internet and browsing are proportional to each other, and the penetration of the Internet has given the spark to the browser war. A field that long remained the stronghold of Microsoft after Netscape downtime has become crowded with many likes Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and more. Gradually, the new entrants have pushed Microsoft’s Internet Explorer on back foot. For your information out of these, Google Chrome holds the largest share i.e. 27.06 %of the browser market preceding Internet Explorer (24.42 %).

The article Google Chrome Help has been focused to provide basic information regarding the setup, installation and configuration of the browser. Again this is a broad category, and narrowing down the article it has been centered at “Google Chrome sign in” and “personal settings”.

The Google Chrome's sign-in feature is nothing but decentralizing the browsing experience across different devices or networks. You no longer need to fret about your bookmarks or apps being "stuck" on one computer. The created Google Account helps you to enjoy your bookmarks, extensions, apps, theme, and other browser preferences anywhere. You can then load these settings anytime you use Chrome on other computers and devices. It can be done in a few quick-to-follow steps. Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar. Select Sign in to Chrome, and create your account. It may ask you to verify as well and in order to synch your preferences click “OK” against the "Confirm Sync Preferences" dialog box. Though, whatever information you stored in your account remains safe, but you can intensify the security settings with a passphrase, and it can be encrypted. This custom passphrase is stored on your computer and isn’t sent to Google.

Internet privacy is buzz of the day mainly due to that high-profile privacy breaching issues that incurred. In the wake of it, Google Chrome has revamped the privacy and security settings feature. Before debating it would be great to understand the positive aspects of privacy tracking. The information retrieved or traced by the search engine is to enhance and customize the browser experience from person to person. For instance, at times, you don’t have to write the entire urls on the address bar to connect with a give server, on occasions if the browser is unable to reach the right server, it might offer suggestions of alternative or similar webpages. The projected information is based on your browsing history or habit. Apart from that the urls that are entered into the address bar is copied and send to the Google server to check it against a list of known phishing and malware components. Thus, it is clear that the habit of browsing is tracked to improve your online computing experience. Google being a search engine deals with hundreds and thousands of web servers with each having its own privacy policy and terms and conditions, and therefore it is hard for Google itself to manage all. Hence, it has come up with an “advanced settings” option to let you manage your privacy well and block spams, malware and Trojans. In case, you need help for setting up that, then Google Chrome Support can come into the role.

Chrome Support the portal anchored by Google itself also hosts a rich knowledgebase that can help you to overcome frequent browsing issues. Hence, it’s good to be a bit innovative and experimenter when it comes to PC diagnostic and troubleshooting.
