How to Use the Chrome App on Your Samsung Galaxy Tablet

By Dan Gookin

Samsung’s Galaxy tablets are based on the Android operating system, which is the spawn of Google. The Google-preferred way to browse the web is to use the Chrome web browser. Your tablet came with the Internet browser. It’s like Chrome, but Chrome has some features you may want to take advantage of.

Yes, it’s okay to have more than one web browser app on your tablet.

Because Chrome is a Google invention, it plays well with other Google apps and services. If you have and use Chrome as your computer web browser, Chrome on your tablet will be familiar to you.

Not only that, Chrome on your tablet coordinates your bookmarks, forms, and maybe even passwords on various websites. It can be a handy feature — but, again, only when you use Chrome as your computer’s web browser.

The handiest way to find things on the web is to use the Google Now app. You can also find a Google Search widget on the Primary Home screen.

While you’re using the Internet app, you can touch either the Search icon or the Microphone icon to search the web.

To locate text on a web page, touch the Menu button and choose the Find on Page command. You’ll see a new toolbar atop the screen.


Type the search text in the Find on Page box. As you type, found text is displayed on the screen. Use the up and down triangle buttons to page through the document. Touch the Back button to dismiss the toolbar after you’ve finished searching.
