Why I'm breaking up with Google Chrome. What do you do with software that used to be thin and beautiful and fast; but, that has become bloated, slow and ugly? You look for alternatives, of course, and, like the author of this little article, I am looking at Opera and Firefox. It goes without saying that Internet Explorer is still the bloated memory hog it always has been. But, Chrome has been slowed by too many extensions, too much bloat, and too many opportunities to crash. I have put my Chrome on a crash diet, and we will see if fewer extensions can save it. If not, I will be getting used to a new browser interface. Browse on.
