Tags: computer software, software, the biggest concern i have with chrome
Now that we know what can go right with Google Chrome, we can take a look at the opposite side of the coin and see it for its many disadvantages. 1. You need to be on the net... Always! This is by far the biggest concern I have with Chrome. You have to do everything online and not offline. Given that it doesn't promise a great offline experience shouldn't mean that you should have no offline experience at all. What happens when you're suddenly disconnected from the web? It's almost equivalent to a sudden restart or, to the worse extent, a crash. 2.
Google can see everything you do. You'll be using their servers to store anything and everything from your computer. You can comfort yourself by believing you'll just be a blip among the millions of other users, but then they've already got their tabs on you. It's as close as any software company gets to monitoring the activities of individuals on a macro scale. 3. It's not really an OS. We know what other systems feel like. This doesn't feel like any other operating system. We can argue that it's a new innovation, and yes that's quite true, but you can't take away the fact that it's just a very huge browser. 4.
Google hardware. It'll do away with your hard drive but instead you'll have to get Google hardware that could replace the hardware that you're already used to. There's still no news of what they might be, so there's no telling what it can do. 5. Very limited capability. We know that it offers what it promises to offer, but the thing is, what it offers is very limited. This lead back to the first reason but expounds further into what you can do on the internet. For one thing, you can't play an online RPG through Chrome and for another thing, you can't use other applications that can use internet connectivity. 6. You need to be a tech genius to make the most of it. You have the freedom to manipulate and improve Chrome but the average person doesn't know how to program a website let alone tweak an OS. You can do whatever you want with it provided you know how to do it. It's like giving a teenager a sports car that they need to assemble themselves. 7. It's not for desktops. In fact it's not really great for anything other than netbooks or other very limited computers. It can do it's job very well, but it's like being a one trick pony. Now, if you can use Chrome for other devices, it would be so much better
