Get a Better Hudl Experience with Google Chrome

Google Chrome

Your Web browser is one of the most important pieces of software on your computer. It’s most likely the first thing you click when you fire up your machine and the place where you’ll spend the most time while you’re on the internet. There are multiple browser options, but not all are created equal.

Hudl will support several browsers: IE8, IE9, Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome. Chrome came into the picture in 2008, and has been our browser of choice ever since. It has changed the way people can view the Web.

Here are five reasons we recommend Google Chrome for our PC users:

Hudl was developed and coded in Chrome.

If you call into support, don’t be surprised if we ask you which browser you’re using. If you’re using a PC, and using anything other than Chrome, you may not be getting the best Hudl experience possible.

Crazy Fast Speed

Chrome is designed to be scary fast and responsive in every possible way.

Working in the background of the browser is a program called V8, which is a JavaScript engine built to run complex Web applications with crazy fast speed. It’s because of this process that Hudl runs really fast in Chrome.

One of the coolest features that Chrome has is Chrome Instant. It helps you search and browse faster on the Web by showing search results and Web pages in the browser window as you type in the address bar, even before you press enter.


Chrome is user-friendly and efficient at the same time. The browser is meant to provide a custom experience for the user. For example:

  • Chrome’s address bar is also the search bar.
  • When you open another tab, Chrome gives you a visual snapshot of your nine most-visited Web sites.
  • Chrome displays a handy list of recent bookmarks and recently closed tabs. You also have the option of arranging the tabs in any order you wish.


Chrome includes features to help protect your computer from malicious Web sites while you browse the Web.

Chrome uses technologies such as Safe Browsing, sandboxing, and auto-updates to help protect you against phishing and malware attacks.

Combine Chrome with Microsoft Security Essentials to give your computer maximum protection.


The Chrome Web store gives you thousands of extensions, themes, and apps from the online marketplace to fully customize your Web browsing experience.
