Dear Google: Stop Reminding Me About Chrome

|
|

I get these pop-ups on Google’s web search page telling me to install Chrome (when I’m not using Chrome), because it’s a faster way to search the web.  Do you get them?

Well, dear Google, the reason why I’m not using Chrome at the moment is because your browser doesn’t support Java on OSX, and there are several web sites that I use that rely on Java.  Like it or not, Java is a standard; there are a lot of things you can’t do with Javascript, and IMO, Java is a lesser evil when compared with the alternative of ActiveX.  I’d have thought that that smart people like you would have had reservations about recommending a browser that lacks support for some pretty basic web technology in such a public manner.

Sincerely,

Somebody Who Wants To Use Chrome, But Can’t.
