Okay, Google Chrome - what the hell happened to you?
I already know the answer to that. Platform-itis. The tendency for every technology stack to become a technology platform. Everybody wants to run the iStore, or Steam.
Listen, people. This -isn't helping-. In a past era this was called bloat. If it hadn't been named then, I don't think today it would have a name, so ubiquitous is the issue.
It's become the trend even in games - more and more games that come out aren't complete, aren't games in themselves, they're just platforms for modding.
Developers? Knock it off.
And now I have to find a new browser. Internet Explorer isn't it. Neither is Firefox, which I abandoned when it started installing malware to my computer without any intervention on my part from -advertisements- on webpages.
