Google Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers across different operating systems. Yes, it’s simple, fast and secured. But one thing I wouldn’t forget to say is that it’s very user-friendly.
What would you expect from a web browser that is cooked by Google? Nothing but the ease of use.
Well, like most of us who always visit sites where we have to register and always log in to access the site, it’s always easier to allow the web browser to automatically save the login details(username and password) so we don’t need to enter it every time we access the website.
It becomes really stressful if you are the type that uses a different password for every single website you visit. Facebook, Tweeter, Google mail, Yahoo mail etc all have their unique passwords. Well, that might seem like you are pretending to be secured, but it’s gonna be hard to recall all those passwords.
If you have a password manager/keeper, then it wouldn’t be a problem.
Google Chrome automatically saves(with your permission) all your login details and has an auto-fill that fills in your login details when you visit a known site.
I love it!
So what if you just forgot your login details or you just want to copy it down? With Google Chrome, it’s super easy to recover your saved passwords, provided you saved it.
