chrome vs safariThe browser wars are heating up between Google Chrome and Apple Safari. Google Chrome has gained immense popularity since it’s launch because of it’s clean interface and improved performance over it’s rivals like Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Now with Google introducing Extensions for Chrome, it becomes even more desirable. Since Google Chrome is available for both Mac and Windows platforms, loyal Safari users are also switching to Google Chrome.
