PostSubject: Google Chrome   Tue Sep 09, 2008 1:55 pm


I've been using Google's new browser, Chrome, since it was released last week.
So far I've been very happy with it apart from the spellcheck, which is not as good as Firefox's.

However the last 2 days I have found that if I want to post on MachineNation I have to go back to Firefox.

With Chrome, I write a post, press preview/submit and the post is lost.

Anyone else having this problem?

Have you given up using Linux? Chrome is not built for it yet, linux. That's kind of a bizarre problem you have - we could lose customers here if Google don't get their act together quick. Is it some settings you can manipulate which might change it for you? How simple or complex is it because I see it as a rival OS for the ones we know and loathe now. (coupled with some low-level hardware routines to manipulate your disks and connections it could easily be another OS)

Yeah, I'm back on Windows at the moment. I go through phases..
Somedays I need Windows for work (Visual Studio), other days I use Ubuntu.

Very odd. P.ie works fine for me.
I've reported the problem to Google.

There was a privacy issue with Chrome last week wasn't there? I haven't had a chance to look it up yet but I saw there was something regarding it the other day.

I'd be a bit suspicious of Google and their plan for world technology and information domination to be honest.

That said, the Government's data retention policy is bad enough. I'll probably have the Irish FEDs outside my door after writing this as it is stored for about 5 years now.

My policy for the last year has been to decline any offers of upgrades. They all seem worse than the old versions. Adobe Reader ? Pfht.

It is working for me fine again now.
I don't know what changed.

I tend to use scroogle a lot. Partly for the principle of the thang (run searches anonymously without google storing your IP and without google ads) and partly because each visit can be so 'amusing'...
