Commentary by Stephen Downes

The Chrome experiment is over and I'm back to using Firefox for now, at least on the home computer. I tested Chrome for a good month. It's a very good browser. But I really missed 'view selection source' in Chrome. Also, the textbox behaviour was wrong - clicking a spot after the end of the line moved the cursor to the beginning of the line, not the end of the line. The comment box on my Halfanhour blog doesn't show up in Chrome. And the copy function frequently misfired. Chrome was faster but Firefox's beta version has now sped up considerably. And finally, this little add-on more than doubles the start-up time, long my major gripe about Firefox. Total: 283
