Kerry, I do understand the “fed up with Firefox” because of the constant droning, drum-beating of Updates. Chrome’s on Version 280? 370? Oh wait - ten more seconds passed, so that’s 14 new versions for them.
But it’s that same mentality and I’m glad Firefox ‘blinked’ and realized that was a waterfall they were hearing up ahead.
The constant updates have beaten me down from ever seeking add-on’s and widgets and whatever else some developers wanted to springboard into. That’s the real cost - Chrome’s been dismissive of this because they’re claiming Google Desktop/OS will solve all of these issues for developers. Yeah. Riiight.
But these are all interesting to watch. That’s all I do. We’re traveling with a couple of laptops with FF 4 and 6, by the way. They work just fine, although I’m sure our banks don’t like those now anymore than they ever do. “Works best with IE6…” Great, huh? They don’t make me wonder why folks stuff mattresses with cash instead.
“No one ever hacks Win98 anymore…” Hack it? I spent two days trying to remember how to install it. “Just copy it to C:, and run SETUP.” Huh?!! Is that it?!!
