Good Lord Does Google Chrome Suck

A few weeks ago, I switched over to Google Chrome on an older laptop. It seemed to run a little better on an older laptop of mine, and everything seemed to work right, so I thought all was fine in the world.

Then I went back and read some old posts here on the blog...and realized that when I used Chrome to copy a quote from another article, it copied everything from the other site...including the background of the web site.

And typically, those backgrounds are white.  My Blogger template (powered by Google, I might add) has a black background.  So what do we get?  White text on a white background.

In other words, illegible.  It was coming through just fine through some of my news readers, which ignored the formatting.  But not on the site.  I'll fix the errors, and I apologize for the inconvenience.

Boy, does Google Chrome suck.  Not as bad as Internet Explorer, mind you.

Ahh, don't worry. I just highlighted with the mouse, and read it fine. :-)

I wonder if it has something to do with the "New Improved" blogger editor which I'm fighting with now?

Seriously. Google is evil. They hate privacy. It shows in every way. Chrome is the least user friendly browser of them all. And talk about eating up memory. Many times it takes well over 10 seconds just to get to Google search. But Opera and Firefox are a snap. Are people really getting more and more gullible? I say do away with everything "Google" and try something that doesn't conspire against us all.
