I started using Chrome browser when it first rolled out in 2008, mainly because it was faster and lighter than Firefox or Opera, and I tend to go for minimalism. In retrospect, Chrome has become the browser I use exclusively and recently I thought about why that is so.
When I use the internet, it is usually (after checking emails and catching news flashes) to maintain or develop blog and websites. I believe that being a developer is the reason I chose Chrome over the others. It is simply geared more towards the developer.
