"Chrome has outgrown its competition in a way that’s unhealthy. My colleague Tom Warren already detailed the deleterious effects of Chrome’s outsize influence, with web developers optimizing and coding specifically for Chrome (and Google encouraging the practice), with unhappy connotations of the crummy old days when Internet Explorer was the dominant browser for the web."

Chrome's basically spyware. Get rid of it ASAP.

@Antanicus I only use Chrome under duress. Firefox even has a great Facebook Fence app when I have to go there also.

I've loved #Firefox and #Mozilla for a couple of decades.

But now, I'm not sure anymore I can trust them. No kidding:

I realized that the #Web is still a #DARPA #weapon.

It let #USA to #control companies that in turn control the #Javascript that run on my computer, in #Europe.

I seemed strange when #W3C let #WHATWG throw away #XHTML and #XLS (and centuries of men work with them).

Not it assumes a damn sense.

@Shamar @alanz I agree with you, it would be naive to think the web is "out there for free". But then again, I'd rather install a browser that runs off a codebase I can actually read and double check...

On this old topic, I just wrote:

It was inspired by several discussions (including this one) but I decided to write it down after reading this non-sense article

Would you be interested in having this copy-edited? It's a good post, but grammatical errors & awkward phrasing make it slower to read & take rhetorical impact away from some of the points.

I could spend a few minutes editing it & send my modified version back to you for review.

@Antanicus Very good article. The best thing about firefox is that it only loads the open window from the last session, which is not the case for chrome.
