Content Philosophy

Content which benefits the community (news, rumors, and discussions) is valued over content which benefits only the individual (technical questions, help buying/selling, rants, etc.). This fundamental difference in audience is why we support two communities, r/Apple and r/AppleHelp. If you'd like to view their content together, click here.

The 2012 /r/Chrome Survey Results (by /r/SampleSize) are in!

All about developments relating to the Google Chrome and Chromium web browsers, Chrome apps and extensions, ChromeOS, and Chromebooks. Post links, ask questions, find solutions, and discuss Chrome-related subjects.

Some things to consider before posting or commenting:

  • Please follow reddiquette and the Golden Rule. We have a zero tolerance policy toward spammers and trolls.

  • If you're posting a request for help with Chrome, please use this tag at the beginning of your post title: [help]. If you're looking for help with a specific issue, please include your info from about:version (click the triple-bar button-> "About Google Chrome") and what OS you're using. Also, such requests should only be done as self-posts.

  • Please don't link to blogspam, meaning blogs or websites that are simply re-hosting articles/information ripped off from other sites. Post directly to the original article or source whenever possible. If you are unable to abide by this simple request, or if your only submissions are to the same sites over and over, or to your personal site(s), you will be banned.

  • We welcome you to post links to any Chrome extensions that you have created, within reason. Posting the same links multiple times, or posting them as comments on posts that have nothing to do with your extension is considered spamming, and you will be banned for such actions.

  • Please don't post image-only links; post screenshots inside a self-post, and please don't post memes or imagemacros. Our AutoModerator removes bare links to images. Please use /r/ChromeHumor for comics, memes, and similar posts.

  • Posting tip: check the new queue for your submission after posting. If it isn't there, let the mods know.

  • If you see a spammer, troll, or shill commenter, please use the report option and/or message the mods.

Questions? Problems? Submission not showing up? Spot a spammer or a troll? Message #chrome and we will look into it ASAP. Protip: only reporting everything a spammer or troll posts without sending the mods a message isn't all that helpful.
