Google Chrome is the new Internet Explorer. Before you freak out it’s not due to a lack of security. No browser has security holes greater than those found in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. No this time it’s due to web developers.
Back in the days when Internet Explorer was the apex of browsers. All others were either not around yet or up and coming. Web developers wrote code that only supported Internet Explorer. Other alternative browsers has various issues with these sites when attempting to load them due to this coding method.
Fast forward to now. And Google Chrome is the main browser of choice by the masses. So web developers are once again coding sites only for this browser. But today we have a wide market of browsers to choose from, Google Chrome isn’t the only one here. We still have IE/Edge, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and others as well that are not as well known.
When a web developer codes a site for only 1 browser, various issues can arise when a user attempts to load that site in another browser. Making that site unusable by some browsers and users.
So now Google Chrome has taken that exalted space once held by Internet Explorer and has become the new IE as web developers continue to code for it and only it.
