Switching back to Firefox from Chrome. Google blows.

I used to love Chrome until a certain update. From then on, they seem to want to run my online experience. Plus, they don't fix bugs.

My biggest gripe is that I want to use Bing.com as my homepage because every day Bing opens up with a new gorgeous and/or interesting wallpaper, often a very well done active wallpaper. Every attempt I made changing settings lto force Chrome to display Bing.com on opening has failed. And that even includes running a little program Bing provides to automate the process. Somehow, the designers at Chrome figured out how to block this change.

What they still haven't figured out after two years of user complaints is how to prevent Chrome from opening up in multiple tabs (usually two of the duplicates) if you dare to change what you see when you open a new tab.

Google undoubtedly has some of the best programmers around. Gmail's antispam feature borders on magic. The search engine is great, too, but, honestly, Bing googles just as well as Google itself, and has features Google does not. But Google is constantly looking at what you're doing in terms of marketing goods and services for its advertising and marketing affiliates, though I imagine Bing does much the same.

The original reason I switched to Chrome after using Firefox for a few years was that Chrome could automatically sync bookmarks, history, etc., onto a new computer or new OS installation and Firefox could not. But now I'm ready to bite the bullet of inconvenience and I'm going back to Firefox.

Any of you had it with Chrome, too?

Ignorance is bliss!

As Tony the Tiger says: "Linux in not good, but GRRRRREAT!"

P.S.

And since when did you begin to partner up with the majority?

I partner with minorities when I think it's important.

The perception is that unixy systems are for computer nerds. I'm a very competent computer user in that I can solve most problems with a little googling, but I'm not ready to be working in the back room of a computer repair shop.
