Chrome is, one of the several browsers which I have installed. And, it has given me more than its share of problems. I am responding to you, because you are, constantly, saying that Chrome is so great, but, for yours truly, it has been the only browser which has given me some crazy issues.
You know that the Mozilla products are not tied to any one interest, and, so, they appear and are so screwy..
I have little interest of what they do, as long as they do not prevent me from using their products, like Microsoft is. I have Win XP, and will still to it as long as my computer works, so goodbye IE9, and followers.
I think sometimes you misunderstand me. I never attach any right or wrong to one's choice of browser. Whatever works best for you or me or someone else, that is the browser he should use. I can appreciate many people using a variety of browsers, particularly if they are developers and/or website designers. For the average person who simply wants to go online for information and entertainment, I'm not sure using a variety of browsers is really advisable. BUT there are some of us... you, me and a handful of others who simply like to play around. What can I say? At times I've had IE, Chrome, Opera, Safari, SeaMonkey and Firefox on this computer at one and the same time but only for very brief periods. Overall, I run with three: IE9, Chrome and Firefox for any extended periods. What you do or John does or Mike does really isn't important one way or another and I wasn't trying to make that point.
BUT what I did originally post was: Chrome is rapidly becoming the darling of online users. It's fast (incredibly fast), it's lean and it works flawlessly (at least for me). Tens of millions of people have downloaded it and use it exclusively. They all can't be wrong. Chrome obviously has brought something to the table for which Mozilla needs to sit up and take notice. That really was the point of the thread... not so much a challenge for anyone here on SillyDog to start using Chrome as his/her default browser. We're primarily a Mozilla forum and it would be ridiculous to encourage this. Besides... I still have a soft spot for Mozilla and undoubtedly I will download and use it again.
Meanwhile.... watch the stats and see what happens to Chrome in the new year.
