10 Reasons to Stop Using Google Chrome

10 Reasons to Stop Using Google Chrome

Google is perhaps THE Internet company, with dozens of products and services that revolve around the technology that has kept us connected for decades. For most people, the gateway to that Internet is, in fact, another Google product, with Chrome taking up the lion's share of the browser market. It's arguable that Google Chrome is the most used piece of software in the world, given how it's used on almost every computing device imaginable. That doesn't immediately mean, however, that it is the best way to experience the Web, and there are also serious reasons why you would want to avoid using Chrome if you can afford it.

2022 Honda Civic Si First Drive: Much more than nostalgia

2022 Honda Civic Si First Drive: Much more than nostalgia

Every automaker in recent years has been keen to repackage our nostalgia for classic sports cars for a new generation. The resurgence in throwback styling, the revival of long-discontinued nameplates, the callbacks to brand heritage on and off the track - they all acknowledge that we miss the long-gone days of fun, affordable cars that could commute five days a week and carve canyons on the weekends. And, with the Gen X’ers that grew up idolizing the sports icons of the 80s finally possessing the cash - or credit - to dictate new model offerings, manufacturers at last have an incentive to bring back the days of yore.

NASA DART: What comes next for the collision-course asteroid mission

NASA DART: What comes next for the collision-course asteroid mission

NASA's DART mission is underway, launching atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 and aiming to answer one of the biggest questions in science - and sci-fi movies: can we avoid a potentially life-ending asteroid strike on Earth? Much to Bruce Willis' disappointment, we're guessing, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test won't try to nuke a rogue space rock altogether. Instead, its ambitions are altogether more focused.

TCL TAB Pro 5G Review

TCL TAB Pro 5G Review

In late October, Verizon announced the TCL TAB Pro 5G, an Android tablet that supports the carrier's 5G network. The tablet, as expected since the initial announcement, is based around compromise: it gives consumers 5G support at a relatively low price, but hits that lower price point by trimming some features that may ultimately make the tablet less appealing to consumers.

2021 Audi RS6 Avant Review

If the definition of madness truly is doing the same thing, over and over again, and expecting a different outcome every time, then perhaps wagon enthusiasts should give up on telling America they're missing out. Let's keep, instead, ridiculously fast and oddly practical cars like the Audi RS6 Avant to ourselves, layering exclusivity on top of supercar levels of performance.

Forza Horizon 5 Review

Forza Horizon 5 Review

I'll level with you from the start: Forza Horizon 5 is a game that I don't really know how to critique. The latest entry in the immensely popular spin-off series to Forza Motorsport, Forza Horizon 5 whisks us away to Mexico for another adventure filled with road races, offroading, and even some stunt work. All of that is great, but it all feels so familiar. We've attended this festival before, and though it is still fun to attend, it's no longer novel. So the question is: how much does that novelty matter? Does a game really have to tread new, uncharted ground in order to be good? Or can it still be good by sticking to what it does well and simply offering more of it?

2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 Review

2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 Review

The limo has grown up, quite literally: where once the height of luxury was a long, sleek sedan, now it's the elevated presence of a six-figure SUV which signifies you've really made it. Witness, then, the 2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 as it goes grille to grille with recent successes from Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and others, the German automaker leaning into its cosseting sub-brand in the hope of replicating the sporting successes of AMG.
