Chrome Vs Internet Explorer

It’s the debate that doesn’t end… Chrome Vs Internet Explorer. Which do you use? Most people just use the browser that they have always used but what is the real difference?

  • Chrome is only just faster to boot up. Chrome has built a reputation for speed but Internet Explorer is not far behind, taking just 0.002 seconds longer to open.
  • Internet Explorer uses slightly less memory.
  • Chrome allows you to isolate problems caused by specific programs. This is the main reason Chrome uses slightly more memory to run than Internet Explorer.
  • Internet Explorer processes Javascript more than twice as fast as Chrome.
  • However, Chrome processes HTML5 more efficiently.
  • Chrome is known to be more aesthetically pleasing. Viewers like the simple, uncluttered design. Internet Explorer seems to be less polished with a boxy, angular design.
  • Internet Explorer doesn’t have much support for plug-ins, add-ons and web apps.
  • Chrome has an array of third-party extensions & applications.
  • Chrome is available on more platforms allowing iOS and Andriod users to sync their data across devices. Unfortunately Internet Explorer is only compatible with Windows phones.
  • Chrome is one of the best browsers available for security purposes however it’s privacy is not as strong.

In modern day, as we use multiple devices and don’t have the time to wait for things, it seems as though Chrome may be the better browser for most people. However, as with most things, they both have positives and negatives.

One Local Business Supporting Another

There is no better feeling than serving the community that we live in and love. Our work provides the privilege to help so many great people in our region achieve their goals. We feel very fortunate to live in the Hunter as it has a rich culture, rich environment and rich community spirit, thanks to the generous people and businesses within our local community.

Imagine Now I.T. is proud to be one such local Maitland company that was blessed to have the opportunity to give back to the community as a sponsor of the 2015 Mai-Wel Gala Ball. As a proud and excited sponsor, I attended the Mai-Wel Gala Ball with my beautiful wife Sophia and almost 300 other local business leaders and Maitland residents. The Paris themed event was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Imagine Now I.T. are grateful that we could be a part of the Mai-Wel Gala Ball. As a sponsor we had a great sense of satisfaction seeing such an amazing night happen and knowing, that we in a small way, contributed to the events success. There is nothing greater than giving back to our local community and we intend on continuing our support of The Mai-Wel Group well into the future. It’s amazing what you get in return for giving so much.

We are also excited to be sponsoring the Mai-Wel Comedy Debate on Saturday 8th of August. We are sure to have a few laughs as some local and Celebrity debaters discuss the controversial topic, ‘youth is wasted on the young.’ The Mai-Wel Group always have great events so I am thoroughly looking forward to this event and it just makes it that little bit better knowing that Imagine Now I.T. is contributing to this wonderful event and deserving charity.

As a small business in the Hunter Valley, we certainly feel lucky to live and work in such a giving and supportive community. At Imagine Now I.T., we feel very grateful to be able to support local businesses and charities and we look forward to continuing to do this in the future.
