No Chrome

I cannot express my deep, deep, deep disappointment in google. First, some background…Just last week I spilled my soul to you in this blog. Remember these words?: ”I am a google geek”…”if google developed it, I want it!”…If google made a G-car I’d buy it”… etc, etc, etc. I wrote those accolades last Wednesday. Why? I had just discovered that google developed a new web browser called Chrome. Now, a little more background…Wednesday night after writing that blog entry I raced home, pulled out my laptop and began to download Google’s Chrome. My excitement grew as the download status bar edged toward completion. Bam, finished…Once downloaded I clicked on the Setup File icon “this is an executable file blah, blah, blah”…I know, I know…just set Chrome up for me. The “Set Up” bar filled and filled. “This is so sweet”, I thought.…then at around 80%, the filling stopped. I waited, the bar stopped moving…finally, a message, “your download has failed”…What?…I tried again, right from the beginning… “your download has failed” again. The actual error message was much longer, but it was a bunch of mumbo-jumbo to my dazed brain. I couldn’t believe it. This is google, the undisputed king of the Internet…The next day I tried again…same error message. The next day another try, then another. Finally, I stopped trying on Saturday…Why?, I thought. What is wrong? I may never know. But until google gets its act together call me FireFox guy.
