Google Chrome is a badly designed, dangerous and buggy operating system that pushes software developers further a way from their own hardware and up into the application-layer walled garden that Google has created with its languages, libraries, and services. it ignores decades of best practices derived from solid research and development efforts, and, via Google's strong influence over the IETF and w3c, it threatens to gut the internet at its base level.
just as those of use who care about such things would tell our friends to stop using Microsoft Office and use Libreoffice instead, so we should be telling our friends to stop using Google products, services, and languages and libraries,and use alternatives. Google is 21st century Microsoft. in my view developers will be the worst here because they follow the herd, are conservative, and tend not to think outside the frameworks they know.
@walruslifestyle it literally used to. A more similar thing I'd chromium that is fully free software, a barebones chrome.
