Google Now this is something that I find really interesting. We all know and love Google Chrome/Chromium (and if you don't, you're demonstrably wrong), but Google recently made a change in the developer version that ruffled some feathers: the URL field will no longer show the "http://". This made a lot of people very upset.

Why do you call this *wrong*?

I wonder why not loving Google Chrome/ Chromium is considered as "WRONG"? Are you trying to force the others to love something you like? You are trying to control the others!

It's just that Thom reserves his right to insult others, while "normal" users would be banned for the same.

I hate Chrome. I hate it's privacy invading features. I hate that Ctrl-Q doesn't work in the Linux version. I hate that it doesn't play well at all with KDE Desktop. I hate the non-standard placement of its tabs.

But hey, it's just me. And according to Thom my whole mindset is just wrong....

Yeah, because I *never* get insulted on this website.

There isn't really a lot of banning that goes on around here, but as you're obviously new around here, we'll overlook it this time.

Yeah I don't like chrome either. It gives me the creeps. Maybe it's just because I don't trust Google. Maybe because I use Linux. Also, maybe, because I spend most of my time on a 3G modem that that little extra speed of rendering goes largely unnoticed.

It's Thom being Thom. You get used to it if you hang out here long enough.

That doesn't make him right of course; he's just the kid with the Barbie...errr...Gilmore Girls action set (this website) and in his eyes we are the action figures. If he says it's wrong for his little dolls to dislike his favorite browser, then by gum we are all WRONG!
