Google "No, there's only one area where Android falls really, horribly, undeniably short when it comes to the tablet form factor: The web browser. It's the most fundamental tablet app, IMHO, and yet the web experience on Android could not possibly be worse." This, right here, is it. On my Nexus 7 - there's not a single decent web browser. Not one. The stock browser? Crashes a lot. Chrome? Slow, touch-unfriendly UI, laggy, and locks up all the time. Everything else uses non-standard UIs are, are plain buggy, are also slow, or any combination of the three - and yes, this includes your favourite browser. I've been through them all. Just yesterday I loaded up my iPhone 3GS, and Safari was like a dream. Internet Explorer 10 on Windows Phone 8? Buttery smooth and excellent UI. How Google - a web company - can let this situation persist is beyond me.

"The idiots at Microsoft must have standardized the position of the Fn key in the bottom left! Those unbelievable morons!! Rather than fix this flaw found in some keyboards, Microsoft has gone ahead and made sure that *every* keyboard will have it instead. Absolutely astounding.

Well, people have different priorities. I want AdBlock and Click-to-play Flash. This guys obviously wants everything to look exactly as on his macbook/iphone/ipad/iwatch/appletv.
You do know that all Apple keyboards with an fn key have it in this awful position as well? Bottom left is the worst place for the fn key and that's for some reason where everyone, including Apple, have put it.

The point was, this guy writes long articles about stuff ordinary people don't notice and care about. I can already see his next article:

"The new Lenovo is a piece of junk, because width / height doesn't equal Golden ratio".

Do we really want to waste breath discussing his stupid ramblings?
