Microsoft Whilst it's not okay in Microsoft's eyes for Google to install a plugin into Internet Explorer, increasing the potential surface area of attack, when Microsoft do it to Firefox, it's a different matter. Now a security hole has been found in a plugin that Microsoft have been silently installing into Firefox.

Sure, I'll give you a list of my essential Firefox extensions and build-in Firefox features which actually improve my work flow significantly or make the Internet simply a nicer place. If Chrome can do all of this things as well I'll consider switching. Oh, but I forgot: You're the ascetic who believes browsers should only be an address bar and a content view because a browser in no way can help the user to have a better experience other than staying of the way.

Chrome is nice for the users who only care about speed speed the same way a leaky hut in the wood is sufficient for people who don't need all those unnecessary features of modern civilization.

I know that your comment was tongue-in-cheek, Tom, but please try not to fall into the same pattern like the ardent Linux users do every time Windows is mentioned.
