The Luster Wears off Google Chrome

After a week of browsing with Chrome, I've switched back to Firefox 3. I did used to Chrome's rather unusual UI layout, but it wasn't the missing menu bar that did in Chrome. For me, there were two missing features that caused me to switch back to Firefox:
  • Chrome doesn't support the TinyMCE editor, which is used by Atlassian Wiki. As a big Wiki user at work, the lack of support for the rich text editor was a big deal.
  • Chrome doesn't support plug-ins ala Firefox. Although I didn't miss my Alexa plug-in, I did miss the Selenium IDE.
Oh well, I'm sure Google will continue to evolve Chrome at a frantic pace. In the meantime, Chrome remains installed on my laptop. It's just not my default browser.
