And that's when you get hacked. Just because it hasn't happened doesn't mean it couldn't

Props to Google and Chrome OS. $3.14 million and no successful hack.

If I were a hacker, I would not bother with Safari, either.

One things for certain....if everybody else or the majority had the same experience as you....it wouldnt be so famous or considered good.
Chome has some issues with add ons, extensions. Opera does too. Its either find alternatives, or hope Google and/or the companies fix it. AI Roboform add on didnt work too good with Chrome, and I like some things about the Google Toolbar. Both of those things had issues in Chrome. (Google Toolbar is understandable; and its officially not available for FF anymore....I needed to do some hackery to get it working again)
Thats why I go with Firefox. For speed....Chrome is good. Opera too.

so you are saying it does crash well i hoped it could run f9 but tried 3 times and now it is lying at the corner of my taskbar

Its not like it crashes every 10 minutes for me...lol. But it just doesnt play well with some stuff I uses regularly. Opera is worse with the stuff I use.
I'm probably better off finding an alternative to the things I use. Like for AI Roboform....Last Pass works better with Opera and Chrome. And its cheaper.

I'm a foxfire guy myself.. Chrome looks awkward at best to me.
12. jroc74 (Posts: 3455; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
I kinda dont like how Chrome looks too.
I like FF for functionality, but I like Chrome and Opera for speed. I use IE as a last resort for compatibility issues. Like last week I couldnt login to Pepco website on FF to pay my bill. I had no problem of IE.
Its funny that the latest IE took design cues from Chrome.

Agreed.. Only time I use IE is on my l920 and that is because I have too. I love my foxfire, my only real knock against chrome is with placement of everything. It is pretty fast though

i heard the best use of previous IE1...8 was to download a better broswer :D dont know if 9 or 10 is doing better
18. papss (Posts: 2178; Member since: 03 Sep 2012)
It's not terrible and works pretty well in mobile form but still prefer ff
20. jroc74 (Posts: 3455; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
For me, IE7 was the best IMO. After 7....IE changed the way it handled bookmark folders. That drove me to Firefox and other borwsers, havent looked back since.

With Android being the open source "nightmare" that Google is fearing. with samsung being too dominate and Amazon just ripping everything out just to put their stuff in there, would a Chrome mobile OS be something to watch out for? maybe a lil more closed, with Chrome and Android apps compatible?

I wouldn't mind seeing a Chrome Phone. As far as attackability, Chrome OS has it done right. It has a low surface area of attack. You can either attack it from the web or attack it from Google's services itself. I would LOVE to get a Chromebook Pixel.

Chrome OS is dead in the water. Who are you people kidding?
