Google Chrome is omnipresent – phones, laptops, or tablets – and it is by far the most used web browser in the world. Chrome captures nearly 70% of the market share ahead of other browsers. In spite of its broad notoriety, Chrome is flawless and has its fair share of negatives as well. There are perspectives where other browsers work way better than Chrome, and in case you're looking to replace Google’s browser with others, here are a few great alternatives.
