Google Chrome is definitely my browser of choice. But it gets tiresome always having to answer questions like “Do you want to allow…. to know your location?” All of these can be turned off. Here’s how:
Click on the menu icon (3 vertical dots) in the upper right hand corner of Chrome.
Scroll down to Show advanced settings
Scroll down to the Privacy section, then Content settings
Look for Notifications. There will be three choices. By default, Chrome is set to ask when a site wants to deliver notifications.
To turn them off completely, select the option to NOT allow notifications.

Travelling with a Wi-Fi only iPad
If your tablet can only connect to Wif-Fi (no data plan), here are 2 things you can do in advance of your travels:
Downloading before you leave: You can download Netflix movies and shows to watch later when you aren’t connected to a network. You can also purchase and download movies and shows from iTunes to watch when you are offline.
You can use Google maps as a city guide and can download areas of their maps to view while offline: Search for a city in Google Map, tap the triple-dot button and then tap Download offline area. Pan and zoom on the map to get the area and level of detail you want. Tap Download in the lower-right corner, give the map a name and tap Save.
