Google Chrome is today’s most popular browser in the world, managing in early 2014 to capture little over 42% of world’s non-mobile browser usage, easily beating all of its competitors in the likes of Internet Explorer (18%), Mozila Firefox (15%), Safari (6%) and Opera (2%).
This complete domination was achieved not only by smart utilization of the WebKit rendering engine that enabled Chrome to be imbued with incredible speed, stability and ability to be run on old computers that had slow hardware, but also streamlining of user interface and introduction of advanced features that enabled all users to easily take advantage of numerous Google cloud services (cloud hosted bookmarks, profile info, full integration into Google infrastructure, including Gmail, YouTube and more). But, even though all these features were present, Chrome was very distinct in constantly trying to maintain its simplistic interface and feature set. This meant that even though it aimed to become the most widely used browser in the world, Chrome never got official support for many features, most notably ability to natively collect, manage and render RSS feeds.
