One of Chrome's strengths is its ability to seamlessly sync with the desktop version, using nothing but your Google account. This allows you to open an article on your Personal Computer (PC) and finish reading it on your mobile phone. It also syncs your bookmarks and favorite sites.

You can control almost every aspect of your web browsing from choosing what content you want to allow to load like JavaScript, images, cookies and pop-ups.
