  1. Another alternative for Chrome is.. CoolNovo (former Chrome Plus). It’s actually the fastest browser I’ve ever used. You realy should try it.

    • I am always looking for a alternate browser for Chrome which is fast like Chrome. I am slowly disliking the Google services and products. Thanks for the telling about the CoolNovo, will try it definitely.
