Google Chrome and the need to configure it

When you open Chrome for the first time after downloading it, the browser selects the language based on what the operating system uses. Likewise, the Google browser also automatically configures many other parameters, such as saving all the web pages you visit in the history. The larger this file and the more storage space it requires, the more the browser slows down. To avoid this, we recommend you delete your history regularly , something that we explain in our article on how to delete your Chrome history. It can also be useful to learn how to create bookmarks to permanently save some web addresses and be able to access them without wasting time..

In order to use Google Chrome comfortably, navigation messages and menu items must be displayed in the language that is most familiar to you. Therefore, you may want to change the default language.
