Google Chrome for Mac

03 April 2021

Modern and fast Web browser.

What is Google Chrome for Mac

Google Chrome is a Web browser by Google, created to be a modern platform for Web pages and applications. It utilizes very fast loading of Web pages and has a V8 engine, which is a custom built JavaScript engine. Because Google has used parts from Apple's Safari and Mozilla's Firefox browsers, they made the project open source.

Google Chrome for Mac is widely popular because it offers Google-specific features on your Mac.

Download Google Chrome on your Mac to get a multi-functional web browser that’s easy to use and customize, no matter your skill level.

Google Chrome is preferred by two-thirds of browser users across platforms, securing that position by serving as a major platform of compatibility for web apps, and should not be confused for Chrome OS which is an operating system.

Licensed as proprietary freeware, Chrome uses the Apple WebKit rendering engine for iOS versions.

When you install Chrome on Mac, you automatically get access to Chrome DevTools with the browser. DevTools allows developers to simulate device and to collect vital information on their code and most other web applications in real-time to debug code and analyze load performance.

Features

  • Bookmarks and settings synchronization across devices and browsers
  • Common Web standards support
  • Advanced Malware and Ad blocking
  • Plugins and extensions
  • Privacy, Speed and Stability
  • A user interface, themes, apps, and desktop shortcuts.
  • Chrome Web Store
  • Automatic web page translation
  • Release channels, cycles, and updates.
  • Release version numbers

Release Channels

Stable Channel

This is the latest stable version and the safe option with all the features tested before release.

Beta Channel

These versions are still in the testing stage so you can expect a bug, but you get to test the newest features first

Dev Channel

Dedicated to the people who use the cutting-edge web platform APIs and developer tools to develop apps for all versions of the web. Weekly updates.

Canary Channel

This is the experimental edition of Chrome with all the newest technologies still under development. This new technology is sometimes referred to as Bleeding edge technology, as it can sometimes break down completely and cause havoc.

The work in progress edition is mainly for developers who want to have information about future releases to help them in their creative processes.

Compatibility

Google no longer provides support for older versions than Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.

I've seen a few reviews stating that Google Chrome became gradually slower since Chrome 70 (such as: https://techbaked.com/google-chrome-80-slower-than-chrome-79/) Can anyone confirm that or give other data/impression? (I mean real life performance, not some unrealistic benchmark ;-) ) I use Chromium 79 but it's hard to say that it got slower across the years, it would need side by side comparison with an old version...

I have enjoyed using Google Chrome for a number of years. However, it seems to have become infected, resulting in the CPU of my computer ring to almost 100% of capacity. RAM was similarly affected. I had no choice but to remove it from my computer. I can't explain why this happened. I will go back to Chrome.

Chrome version 79.0.3945.79 All of a sudden Chrome on my Mac stopped opening HTTPS websites, but still opens HTTP websites. The same websites work in Safari and Opera. I've tried everything I could find online: - turn off VPN - restart Mac - reinstall Chrome - incognito mode (still not working) - turn off antivirus - there's no firewall - removed cookies - 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 DNS servers - tried connecting to different WiFi networks And nothing seems to help. Any ideas what it might be? Just couple days ago everything worked perfectly (as for the last few years), I haven't installed any new software, haven't done anything unusual on this computer.

...btw, the new forum format is terrible. Hard to concentrate, not as compact and pleasant for viewing as the old one. I see it as the current trend, which is too bombastic, too wide, too large, to spread out. Etsy for example did the same thing with their forums too. Most users there don't like it and stopped using the forum all together. Me as well. I suggest to MU, beware. Macupade, YOU don't have to follow the trend necessarily. It is not good for everybody. Not all MU users like this for sure. And you'll experience drastic decrease in visits.

Chrome first wants access to my Keychain, then it connects to google without even having any browser window open. No other browser acts like that, constantly trying to snoop and crawl and connect to services which you never wanted or used, trying to find and report anything that can be sold on the market for ads. For me anything google or chrome is just unacceptable. This is only on my harddisk for testing browser compatibility in webdevelopment.

When I open a browser... I want to BROWSE. And usually, I have a destination in mind and want to get there ASAP. Every single time I open Chrome, it wants me to log in so it can track everything and sync my info. It was annoying, and I turned it off. But it doesn't really turn off. And the "remember this device thing doesn't work, so I have to do it every time. But I dealt with it. Then, they forced 2-step authentication on me. Now, I open the browser, it opens a new tab. Demands I log in. I do, but then I have to authenticate it on my phone, and check the box to "Remember this device" 60 seconds later I can finally navigate where I wanted to go. So I turned it all off. No more synching. no more 2-step authentication, no more prompting for log in. But guess what? Doesn't matter that I have them turned off. It still wants me to log in. It still needs 2-step authentication. And it still doesn't remember my device despite the hundreds of times I've done it. Now I just avoid it. Garbage software. I still need to open it for certain sites that won't work on Safari, but that's the only time I bother.

Well, it's fast. But it's Google, which also means that they are mining everything you do and everywhere you go and selling that info to everyone who wants it. Google used to be the "don't be evil" company. Now it's the "Fuck user privacy" company. Go with Firefox or stick with Safari.

Chrome is a beautiful browser - fast (really fast), clean, secure, organized and lots of options. BUT, it is such a memory/CPU hog that on every Mac I've ever used it on (home & work, 6 altogether), ever since version 1. This week was no exception. Redownloaded/reinstalled after a long hiatus from use. My Mac came to a C R A W L. It was really bad. So it seems I'll never get to use it again. Google doesn't seem to address this issue.

Think I'm going to stop using this browser. Used to be fast and stable, but nowadays it really doesn't work well with text expansion software. Keeps hanging, garbling stuff and screwing up formatting. I still download and try each update in case they've improved it, but am constantly disappointed. Maybe it performs better on Windows / Google platforms?

There's little to no doubt that Chrome is Google's specialized bot net as Windows is the same for Microsoft -- both applications sports all sorts of nasty invasive telemetry impossible to disable without losing usability or downright break them.

As some other users tell here the GoogleSoftwareUpdate daemon is also totally disgusting stuff.
F*ck you Google, I'm moving away from your sticky tentacles!!!

Safari + DuckDuckGo <3 way to go!

1. User who use a lot of tabs will notice that the memory usage is just skyrocketing, the "Google Chrome Helper" processes are just piling up and never reduce their footprint even after closing lots of tabs and or windows. I call this a major memory leak.
2. The activity of the Google Software Update Daemon borders on malware characteristics. How many outgoing connections this things wants to establish is just beyond anything remotely reasonable. I wonder what this software is actually transmitting so feverishly.
3. When restarting Chrome it automatically loads all previously opened tabs instead of incrementally as you click on them as Firefox does - which is way smarter.
4. Power users will miss the convenient bookmark bar on the left. I find it cumbersome without.
That said, it works fast and stable - for a while - until it has to be restarted because of issue #1 (see above).

Before I download the new Chrome, is it creating boxes around search findings? The reason I ask is that Google apparently was and still is testing, randomly among users, the "boxed" design. I finally got rid of it -- actually, someone else removed it for me (thanks, Google) -- and don't want to have to experience it again. Thanks for your tips.

I've never seen a browser more comfortable than Chrome, I'm a big fan of it! There is nothing extra buttons users don't need. I think, the simplicity is the main feature the browser should have and Chrome has got it in the best way. That's why I appreciate this app and glad to have it installed on my mac.

It works well enough as a secondary browser. Unfortunately, for me, it is lagging on Blogger and YouTube, in contrast to Firefox. Does that make sense that it works poorly on Google-owned sites? It doesn't. (It's really not bad on other platforms.) It seems, with all of its processes, to require more resources. Using it on a MacBook Pro 2.6 GHz i7 with 16 GB of RAM and SSD, I would think that it would perform extremely well. I use it for a few downloads where Firefox isn't happy, and places where Safari might be better than Firefox. (I don't use Safari.)

I can not use Chrome, because the colors are too saturated on a monitor with a large gamut. Chrome does not use the monitor profile for objects without ICC profile. Safari and iCab are the only browsers that I know, which displays colors corroct in sRGB on all monitors as far as possible. In Firefox you have to change preferences, or use the add-on Color Management..

I've tried different browsers, like Firefox, Opera and Safari, they are not bad but I feel myself the most comfortable only with Google Chrome. Well, I'll try to be objective describing this app. Great features: - fast processing; - minimalist design (only few buttons but that's enough); - Google homepage with the most using pages; - quick access to the bookmarks; - lots of different extensions; -Google docs work perfectly; - free and easy to install on any device. Less great features: - utmost simplicity for people who appreciate rich functions interface (seems like this is the only feature I have found). So, Google Chrome is considered to be a must have browser on every computer.

A consistent problem I have encountered with Google Chrome is that does not remember passwords or prompt the user to save website passwords. In fairness, all web browsers I have used occasionally do not remember or offer to remember passwords but they (Firefox, Safari) are far better at it. Although, Chrome is a competent web browser for me at least that is a deal breaker, and consequently, I rarely use it.

This is VERY sad. I understand that MacUpdate has to make money but to suddenly start this forced "MacUpdate Installer" with no warning or explanation has me seeing the fiasco that was Version Tracker all over again. If I were the Product Manager, and I am one, I would be selling the benefits of our Updater NOT forcing it. I would make the "Install Now..." more compelling as a service which could be seen as "Apple's App Store" for non-app store apps. I would need to put a lot more thought into this but you get the idea! My point being there is the right way to do this and the Version Tracker way to introduce change and unfortunately MacUpdate has chosen to not learn from the past. Going forward I will still use this site but go to the developer's page for the updates and not use the links here. BTW: I defended MacUpdate in the recent MacWorld article on this topic just this week! Don't I feel like the fool! :-(

Google Chrome is full of it! Not more than a week ago I just happened to look through Launchpad and found a Google app icon sitting there. I was completely shocked, and immediately lost my temper because the only Google software I installed on my Mac was Google Chrome. But to my utter surprise another app from Google was just sitting there in Launchpad. So I went to my Applications folder so I could uninstall it. But guess what? It was not there. The only Google app that was there was Google Chrome. WTH? Oh, I completely lost it! I thought to myself my computer, my Mac is hacked! I do not remember why, but I went back to Launchpad to look again at this Google app I DID NOT install. Guess what? Along with it, now I saw three other Google apps installed. Words cannot express how furious I was to see this. Not even two or three minutes went by and now four apps I DID NOT install were sitting there in Launchpad. I couldn't contain my anger. My tongue unleashed every verbal slur I could against Google. In a complete rage I went back to my Applications folder to see if I could find any of these Google apps. No! They were no where in sight. I could barely think straight as the chemicals in my brain were firing off in skewed proportions. Finally, I was able to latch on to a single thought that I should do a Spotlight search to find out where these #%&@^ apps were hiding. And guess what? They were in the Applications folder, but they were in a invisible/hidden folder named Google Apps. Again, words cannot describe how pissed I was at this point. Immediately I began uninstalling everything Google on my computer. Long story short, Google can kiss the deepest portions of the crack of my ass! I will never install another Google app on my computer or any other computer for as long as I live. I can care less how much anyone else love's Google, neither do I care if they think their experience with this completely intrusive developer has been a bed of roses, and neither do I care if somewhere deep in the terms of service a statement exists giving Google permission to install whatever the hell they want any time they want. There is no need for me to tell Google to go to hell because that is already a certainty! This review also serves as fair warning to anyone with Google software installed on your computer(s). Also, you can do like I did after this horrible experience and go to the Web to read of similar experiences by other computer users that just happened upon Google apps suddenly appearing on their computers if my story is not enough to convince you to stay the hell away from Google. Lastly, I wish I could remember all of the names of Google apps that seemed to install themselves, but I was far to furious to think straight to remember. Nonetheless, I do recall seeing Google Drive as one of the four. From here on out I completely consider all Google software to be malware/spyware, especially because these apps were installed in an invisible/hidden folder named Google Apps in my Applications folder. Anyone willing, and that is a keyword, willing to continue using Google apps on your computer will not get any flack from me, but I do recommend you get your head examined because you're an idiot! And that's your choice to live with Google putting invisible/hidden malware/spyware applications on your computer. It is a good thing Apple has this app called Launchpad because without it I would never have known Google violated my privacy, and installed apps without my consent. Thanks, Apple!

WARNING: horrible, disabling update. It completely broke Java and other plugins, because they decided to remove standards that all other browsers support. I rolled back to version 43 for now to wait and see if they ever come to their senses and fix it, otherwise, they are recommending that you use Safari or Firefox, which I don't want to do! Version 45 is broken too. They broke it after Sept 1st.

This is the most intrusive browser available, tracking every site you visit and reporting it directly to Google. I made the mistake of installing it once, and removing it was a nightmare, self-replicating applications kept replacing what I deleted. I had to gut the application that was replacing everything (wasn't easy to find) and lock it so it wouldn't replace itself, to finally remove everything. I will never install this trash again on any machine I own.

Google Chrome is a good browser if you want to have everything synced across your devices. Unlike Safari, which works only on Macs and iOS devices, this browser let you use it on: - Macs - PCs - iOS devices - Android devices - Linux devices Yes, Chrome may use too much RAM. That is the price to pay for quality, I guess. Many people are talking about privacy and things like that in this thread. Do you really think someone is spying on you all the time? Nobody cares about your life and browser history unless you're a president or a billionaire. Why do people always think they're so important?

My jaw kind of dropped when I read the notation under the "What's New" section for version 44.0.2403.130. It simply states "This update includes a number of fixes."

Is that some kind of a joke? Is that the best explanation that a huge, rich company like Google can offer? Do they consider us Mac users so low on the evolutionary scale that we do not deserve a more in-depth explanation regarding what is actually new in 44.0.2403.130?

To me, that is the epitome of laziness.

I rarely use Google Chrome, but that kind of a statement does not instill confidence in their product.

At least with Firefox, we know what we are getting.

I REALLY wanted to like Google Chrome for Mac but, Google insists on ignoring OS settings and building in features without overrides. The biggie for us is when you click a FTP with credentials, it should launch the app set to handler app (ours is YummyFTP). Instead, it opens the crappy browser FTP window instead completely bypassing the OS settings. Safari and Firefox both work great like this but, not Chrome.....

To all those who simply adore Google and choose to ignore the fact that you are not their customer, that you are only a source of data, please take the time to read this:

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2015/06/google-chrome-listening-in-to-your-room-shows-the-importance-of-privacy-defense-in-depth/

The first paragraph:
Yesterday, news broke that Google has been stealth downloading audio listeners onto every computer that runs Chrome, and transmits audio data back to Google. Effectively, this means that Google had taken itself the right to listen to every conversation in every room that runs Chrome somewhere, without any kind of consent from the people eavesdropped on. In official statements, Google shrugged off the practice with what amounts to “we can do that”.

A public service reminder that Google is evil and doesn't give a sh*t about anyone's private affairs while it intrudes on every aspect of your digital life.

I absolutely HATE the new bookmark saving functionality and the new bookmark manager. I don't know who is working on UI over at Google, but they need to be fired. Horrible design. It's more difficult to do EVERYTHING associated with bookmarks now. Was once a great browser, ruined by this horrid experience.
