Oddly enough I’m writing this post using Google Chrome, but only after I put on my french maid outfit and dusted that Chrome icon off. To be honest, since it doesn’t offer any quality Add-Ons as of yet, it’s fell by the wayside. I’m surprised that Google hasn’t done more to encourage developers to create Chrome Add-Ons, at least in any capacity to compete with FireFox.
Searching for a solution to the Chrome add on problem I did come across a site called My Chrome Addons. This site is the closest thing to a repository of useful tools for Chrome as it gets, but seems to focus more on themes than actual tools that increase user experience. In it’s raw form Chrome has yet to do anything that FireFox can’t do better.
Furthermore, it’s just not as stable as originally advertised. Well, just typing this post it’s crashed on me completely, not just a few functions. I’ve never had any problems using FireFox, in regards to stability, other than it’s wildely free roaming memory consumption. Hell, this many revisions later I’d hope they would have that fixed by now.
As mentioned previously, I am writing this blog post in the Chrome browser, but it almost feels unnatural. Generally when researching blog posts I’ll have multiple FireFox windows and tabs open. Chrome doesn’t offer one-click opening of multiple instances of itself. So for now, Google Chrome will remain a novelty icon, a program I dust off every so often to see if any progress has been made.
