  1. Hello Pulkit,

    Great informative post about Google Chrome. I have been using Chrome for the last couple of years and it is my default browser in my pc at the moment. Your post will definitely increase its performance.

  2. Yeah all Google’s products are awesome with many features, but Google’s seed money came from the CIA that doesn’t feel people are entitled to privacy.
    i do not trust Google with my browsing data and my private informations along with my phone number to sign in to Google.
    that’s the only problem 🙂
    Facebook too:)
    Many thanks and Happy new year!
