Go to About Chrome in the menus. It should auto update. 😊

Switched to Firefox on all my things when I reformatted my PC. It takes a bit of getting used to, but is just as handy as Chrome was.

Also tried changing to DuckDuckGo as the default. Changed back to Google pretty quickly though; it's supremely convenient to just be able to stick anything into the search box and it automatically come up with what you want.

Ugh DuckDuckGo! I use Firefox as my “backup” browser.

I like Chrome for cross device syncing (useful for bookmarks, passwords, site history etc) though I do use Keepass and 2 step to keep things secure.
