    Chrome is non-free and ‘google’; as far as I’m concerned google can keep it.

    Thanks to bad web design I absolutely loathe ‘flash’; I’m getting tired of writing to people telling them that their website is ineffective and a resource hog and please get rid of the ‘flash’ requirement and if they insist on ‘flash’, only make it available to people who care to use it.

    The only reason I use ‘Mozilla’ is that ‘lynx’ just can’t handle the modern web with all the rubbish on it.

    Mad Scientist: Lynx can’t handle it, but wget can!!! But seriously, why can’t we have a text browser that works? That recognizes sidebars (which should be easy) and puts them aside, and dumps graphics in a temp directory and opens the first one in image viewer.

    This does not seem hard.

    Flash sucks. Always have issues in Ubuntu. Not to mention on my media unit, won’t be recognized as video overlay for automatic fullscreen output to my TV. And everyone for some reason loves flash…

    I use Firefox on Ubuntu with ‘noscript’ as a plug-in. I can choose to enable Flash or embedded videos on a temporary basis, so I only see the ones I opt to see.

    Or course, this doesn’t address the issue of web-designers overusing Flash or any other annoying product.
