OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

Oh, yeah, and as a matter of principle, I stick to open-source OSes and Firefox.

Chromium builds of Chrome were the closest thing to a WebKit-based browser which met my needs and they started going downhill before they reached feature parity with Firefox. (eg. forcing the address bar to hide "http://", requiring $5 to open a developer account on the Google extension site, making it difficult to install extensions from outside the extension site, etc.)
