Why Change Language in Google Chrome?

So now that you know the answer to your question, let me take just a moment to ponder over the “why” of this question. Because, without knowing “why” you’re doing something the “how” doesn’t really count, does it?

There might be a hundred different reasons why you might want to change your Google Chrome language.

The most common reason being, if you’re a non-English speaker, you’d want to use a more native language. Something like Chinese, or Hindi or maybe Spanish?

Chrome supports almost all the commonly spoken languages across the globe, so that’s one less problem to worry about.

Or maybe you visit a lot of pages in other languages and you might not want to translate the pages over and over again.

The other reason is my own personal favorite, and a bit “not so mainstream”. I change languages in my Google Chrome to learn new languages.

Well it sure as hell is a mess at first, but once you scan the pages in English, the next time you refresh the page in some other language, you sure do get a vague idea of what the words mean.

It doesn’t make me a fluent speaker or even lets me understand the language completely, but it’s just a little something I like doing.

Other Google Chrome Tips Worth Mentioning:-

Now that you’re here, why not let you in on a little something you might find interesting?

Jumpy Fox Game on Chrome:

That definitely isn’t the “official” name of the game, but that’s the best I could come up with. There’s this inbuilt game with Google Chrome you can play on the “No Internet Connection” page.

Meaning, whenever your internet isn’t cooperating and your webpage isn’t opening, you can hit it up.

And the process is fairly simple. Whenever you’re on a webpage that couldn’t be displayed due to bad internet connection, just hit any “arrow key” on your keyboard and the game would start.

It’s not something like the FarCry maybe, but it kills time till your internet comes back for sure.
