Chrome Please.

January 23rd, 2009

Google’s Chrome is digital butter and some fresh apricot preserves on artisan 12-grain bread. My screen realestate is now a wide open meadow, full of stark internet and little else. Pages load quicker than the next simile. (Yes, I know the last two were metaphors.)

Microsoft insults the browser world with every visit:

Use our site quickly? No way.

They wanted to change this message to read, “How dare you use another browser than the Viral one we embedded in your computers? Now go back to your sleepy IE before anyone sees how fast the internet really can be.”

Computers, Pointless

    I was having a weird Firefox refresh problem on my computer at work so I’ve been using Chrome. Seems to work well. The lack of plugins is ouchy though. No adblock or leechblock. Guess they’ll fix that eventually.

    Chrome lack in the settings department, and URL management in the history is ultra clunky. I will suffer all that pain for the speed increase and the paste and go features!
