Almost a Chrome convert

It's been a while since I used Firefox and I'm really not impressed with the 3.6 release. It's interesting to see how adoption by the masses often happens when technical excellence is long gone.

I've been a Safari user for the most part and managed to live very well without any plugin (which was the real test for me). Safari is just faster and so much lighter-weight than FireFox. But Chrome has been my default browser for the past couple of weeks and so far I really like it. It's as fast if not faster than Safari, the integration with Mac OS is certainly as good, and I have yet to experience a crash. I am missing a few features though :
• how can I easily create a link on my desktop for the current URL? On Safari I was simply drag-n-dropping the bubble icon from the location bar.
• how do I see/use syndication for the current feed. Again, very easy in Safari. No obvious equivalent in Chrome.
• how do I configure the thumbnails on the "New Tab" view?

Is Safari on Windows good for you?


So you start up thinking you'll be able to finer tune your web application on a shiny new browser and it seems you really end up debugging Apple's product instead. Once every so often, Apple releases very buggy software (granted this one is tagged as beta but with iTunes available on Windows for a while you would think they'd get the rendering right).

I like competition, but I don't see how Safari is helping and what it is bringing to Windows other than a content delivery platform for Apple to complement iTunes. I like and use iTunes on Windows but will not install Safari for the time being.
