New Google Chrome Issue Might Make People Switch to Firefox

If you are browsing the internet right now, there is a pretty high probability that you are doing so on your Google Chrome browser. This is because of the fact that Google Chrome is the single most popular browser in the world, and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that it was initially marketed as a streamlined, speedy and efficient browser which seemed too good to be true in an era where browsers were notorious for being slow and glitchy in a lot of different ways.

The fact of the matter is that there are a lot of different reasons behind why Google Chrome has managed to attain the status that it currently has, but this doesn’t mean that the platform is without its detractors. Indeed, if you think about it then in spite of the fact that it has managed to gain this much popularity, Chrome has more than its fair share of critics who criticize a wide variety of things about the browser including its vulnerabilities which tend to be the main focus whenever anyone is trying to criticize the web browser in any way, shape or form.

With all of that having been said and out of the way, what you might want to know is what the latest scandal is, and it turns out that it might be so big that it might just end up forcing a lot of Chrome users to start switching to Firefox, something that is often discussed among people who are frustrated by the manner in which Chrome is working and how it tends to impact the various things that you might be taking part in all in all.

Google Chrome has an identifier in its coding, and this identifier is basically used to keep track of experimental changes that are made to Chrome, changes that might end up becoming widely rolled out updates but need to be tested out before something like this can actually be done in a truly effective manner all in all.

Some coders and developers felt like this identifier could be used to attain personal information for a particular user, and even though Google vehemently denied that this was a case, they are now retracting this denial and effectively accepting that there is a vulnerability that needs to be patched. Now, this is important because of the fact that it is a vulnerability that Google put into its own browser, and this might just end up taking a lot of trust away from people that still felt that Google Chrome was worth it.
