Google Chrome major fail

I have been happily using chrome for years now but today they have seen fit to break the application and send me back to Firefox.

I found that there are now some pages for which scrolling does not work correctly. Wheel scrolling can be fixed for some by adding an exception but that did not help with scrolling by dragging the scroll bar.

A support document said this happened when extensions were added to support touch. So in order to support a crappy desktop input method the large majority of users are going to have to suffer with a browser that just doesn’t work correctly for a method we have been using for literally 30 years (Happy Birthday Mac!)

Or, more likely say screw chrome and use Firefox which works.

One thought on “Google Chrome major fail”

  1. I haven’t ever really gotten used to Chrome, but I have to admit it works nicely with some of the the things we use at school. I just wish that the various browsers would talk to each other and standardize the code… I use different browsers depending on the OS I am running.

    I do not enjoy messing around trying to learn a new interface for every device, but even less do I like having nothing that works.
