A Single Command to install Google Chrome on Windows 11 or 10

Skip the traditional method of installing Chrome; use a command to quickly install the Google Chrome browser on Windows 11 and windows 10.

In 2008, Google released the browser, thanks to its fast speed, it became the most popular browser after only four years. Today, it still holds the top spot. In the Google Chrome browser, the HTML renderer Blink, which is split off from the WebKit, is used. The free Javascript engine V8 is used to execute JavaScript.

Google Chrome consists of three parts. The actual browser, which is responsible for controlling the software, the renderer implemented in the browser and running as a sub-process, and the rendering engine Blink, which runs within the renderer. The rendering processes of the individual tabs (tabbed browsing) take place in a shielded environment (sandbox). This prevents malicious code from infecting the entire computer if only one of the tabs is corrupted.

The browser is available not only for computers but also for smartphones. On most Android devices, it is even pre-installed. In addition, it is possible on the computer to supplement the browser with extensions from a store. Another browser feature is that you can use Google Translate to translate entire web pages.
