Today, my Windows 7 OS decided to de-clutter some files by itself and it did. But after I re-booted my laptop, Google Chrome kept shutting down on me everytime I turned it on.

Why I Switched to Google Chrome from Firefox!

Until couple weeks back, I have been using Google Chrome browser as my secondary browser for loading Google-based services. I didn’t really use it fully but decided to make the “full switch” by using Google Chrome for most of my online services.
