What Do You Dislike About Google Chrome?
A while ago Google’s Matt Cutts posted reasons why he likes Google’s browser Chrome
, but now followed up with another post talking about what he doesn’t like about Chrome
so far. It’s refreshing to see Matt take such a balanced stance. I wanted to forward the question on here too: what do you currently dislike about Chrome?
So far, while there may be a number of quirks with Chrome, only two reasons kept me from switching to this nicely uncluttered browser for a longer trial time:
- ... that you can’t completely turn off tabs. As I’m already using tabs in the Windows bar, I prefer to handle browser instances in multiple windows, but Chrome’s tabs – while relatively unobtrusive if you don’t use them (e.g. the top tab bar also works well as a mere title bar) – still make themselves be seen in a couple of places.
- ... that you (seemingly) can’t completely disable the special quick start homepage. Even when I set the different options accordingly to show only “about:blank”, hitting Ctrl+N on a window will still show that quick start page. (I’m using Ctrl+N on windows all the time, and one other issue Chrome had – that new windows don’t open maximized – could be resolved by starting chrome.exe using the parameter “-start-maximized”.)
