5 Reasons Google Chrome Sucks




I have been using Google Chrome since it's first launched and I couldn't deny how fast the loading mechanism it has in each and every tab. I have been using it every time that I want to perform my search or open any sites, however when it comes to blogging, I will still use Firefox. Not only that, I find that certain websites that I've tried to access (eg: online banking) do not recognized the browser as a valid one, thus it blocked me from accessing my page. *BUMMER*



Here, I would like to highlight a few missing stuff that Chrome doesn't have that hindered me on using the browser, which switch me back to Firefox, on and off.


[1] No ADD ONS
Yes, Chrome doesn't have any add-ons as all you may have know now after using it. I find it a trouble when I want to use my StumbleUpon add-on, as I got to switch back to Firefox Browser to do it. I am sure many of you have certain add-ons that you have been using religiously and you would love to have it in Chrome. I wonder when Chrome will have any add-ons development?


[2] Search engine (s)

Yes, search engineS. How to search for youtube.com in a drop down menu just like what Firefox has? It would be fun and easy to use if they have it.



[3] No HOME button
Well, did you guys see any HOME button lurking around? If yes, please guide me there!!!



[4] FIND function
I can't search without getting the correct information through it's FIND function whilst modifying my blogger template, thus I got to switch back to Firefox when doing it.


[5] DO you think Firefox is hotter?
Well, now I have 2 browsers on my desktop. Chrome for searching / browsing purpose while Firefox for using the add-ons and others. Firefox is still my default browser though. What about you? Which browser is your current default browser?

1. I've heard rumours they started to implement basic GreaseMonkey functionality in Chromium code. And for now: http://blogote.com/2008/ideas/browser-ideas/how-to-install-greasemonkeys-script-on-google-chrome.html

2. Go to youtube.com -> Click on `wrench' button -> Options -> Basic -> Manage SearchEngines. You'll find there YouTube search - simply make it default SE temporarily. It'll stay on your SE list for ever. Customize it (i.e. add shortcut); just type the shortcut in Omnibox followed by Tab to search.

5. There is NO default browser on my desktop. Cooperative mode will work always better than kill'em all mode `(|;-)

I don't understand the Chrome hype. Yeah, it's pretty fast, I'll give it that. But that's about all. I can't customize it, it looks ugly, the user interface is TOO minimalistic. I don't get why they're trying to reinvent the wheel. Why do I suddenly need this "incognito" thing?

I'm a big fan of trying out new browsers, but Chrome simply has not impressed me.

Raz: no not yet, but will do it once I get some free time :D thanks for sharing


Wolf the Raccoon: everyone is into the Google-hype I guess. Wanting to try new stuff and checking out what Google has. I believe Google did quite a good job on the loading mechanism, however they have got to improve on other stuff to fight with other browser...

yeah?

Yeah for Firefox! Google has a home button, its just that you have to set it in the options. Anyway it also sucks for me too. =)
I uninstalled it after 25 minutes of using.
