Like Karl was told....Dotan....get a blog....

About 80% of the posts on this topic are from you...This thread is
slowly reminding me of Karl and his Wicd thread.  But, you know...I
wasn't verbose enough on my dislike of Google, even though I use
G-Mail.  I like Google better than Microsoft, but their business
practices leave something to be desired, at least by me...and possible
the guy who wrote the Forum Thread I read about securing Firefox
against Google.

So yes, I do have Cookies turned off, Ad-Block installed and NoScript
running because I would rather not give Google and other companies
like it an open invitation to my computer and my information without
at least a chance at knowing what they are doing.

Do I think it is great that Google is working on a Linux version of
Chrome....not particularly, but that is just because of the company,
but I do see the monumental impact that can be had when a company as
big as Google begins writing software for the Linux platform.  So on
the other side of things, yes I think it is very cool they are doing

However, on a personal side, it's about as cool as Microsoft writing a
version of Office for Linux.

Again, this is my opinion, I'm not some ZOMG Google Bad newbie on the
Internet, I just choose not to be overly wordy on some posts because
then you end up sounding like a jackass as I am sure I have made
myself sound here...

I'm glad you are uber happy for a Linux version of Chrome.  I hope it
works out for you very well.
