I usually post on my laptop. I sent it back to HQ for some updates, so I am using my ancient family desktop this week. (No canned post today!)
Anyway, I keep getting messages from Blogger telling me the Blogger interface will not work right with Windows. I need to install Chrome. I use Firefox on the laptop, so I am not sure if this is a new warning or has been going on a while. I will say posting, etc. is difficult when half of the toolbars do not show up.
I have never taken to threats or bullies, so if Blogger thinks this will make me install the Google Software, they should think again. I will abandon this piece of shit in a heartbeat. I have two other blogs, both on Wordpress. Currently neither has new posts, but that can be fixed.
Google Chrome may be the greatest browser ever invented. But I will not be blackmailed into using it.
We bought the desktop model I am typing on in 2005. At the time it was state-of-the -art. It had all of the bells and whistles. Now it is a Ford Edsel in a world of Ferrari's. My iPhone has more computing power. I am not sure I have the memory to install a new browser if I wanted to, I am sure I do not have the cache to do it.
This POS has been infected with so many viruses you cannot imagine. We only discovered one time my daughter had been turning off the virus protection every time she got on the computer because "it slowed her down and would not let her download stuff". She had been doing this for months. The internals of this computer housed more toxic viruses than the CDC.
You can only go in and slice evil worms from the registry so many times before you have negative effects. It is like brain surgery, there are bound to be side effects. That is my theory anyway.
This computer only gets used on occasion. The wife uses her iPad for every day browsing. The boy and I both have laptops. The steam turbine that powers this old HP only gets booted up every few weeks. I am not going to invest any time in upgrading anything on it.
Google Chrome can just bite me. Hear that Google? Go suck an egg.
I suspect the evil Google overlords are not going to like this post, so if I disappear, I will leave a path of bread crumbs to my hideout.
