Browser Update

In my second ever blog post I sang the praises of Google Chrome. I’m sad to report that the honeymoon is now over.

Although I gave it very fair chance (over 6 months of use!), Chrome still has problems opening certain multimedia content such as Flash and PDF documents. Firefox and even *cough* Internet Explorer *cough* do not struggle with these 3rd party applications.

Another annoyance, albeit not directly related to Chrome, is the difficulty I’ve had synchronizing my bookmarks. The XMarks extension for Chrome has performed poorly. In fact, I’ve spent the last two hours deleting thousands of duplicate bookmarks in Chrome.

I’ve decided to switch back to Firefox. The browser’s loading time seems to have been greatly improved since I abandoned it in favor of Chrome — that’s the reason why I switched in the first place. Chrome is definitely blazing fast but, for now, I’m going back to a tried and true browser.
