During our last class Alec introduced an amazing tool to us… HOLA! This was the best/worst thing he could have shared with me and I’ll tell you why! Hola is a tool that you can download onto Google Chrome that allows you to change your IP address to a different country, it is a type of extension used only for Google Chrome users. Why is this tool so amazing… American Netflix! Since downloading this extension I have watched a lot of Criminal Minds and Disney movies.
However, downloading this extension started a worthy conversation with my cousin who I told needed to download this extension. Until this year I had been using Internet Explorer for all my web browsing needs. I had been told multiple times that I should not be using Internet Explorer, that Google Chrome was way better, yet I still am not sure why. The reason I bring this up is because I told my cousin that she must use Google Chrome, like MUST, but when she asked why, I could not give her a legit reason. Which is why I am blogging about it. I like Google Chrome and I will not go back to Internet Explorer (because I don’t want to lose American Netflix), but I am wondering if anyone can give me a good reason (that’ll I’ll understand) as to why using Internet Explorer is so bad.
Also, take a look at this photo that my cousin did tag me in on Instagram, sort of explains my confusion as to why people are so adamant that I use Google Chrome and forget about Internet Explorer.
