1 Chrome:  the new(ish) rounded tabs are fugly in the extreme.  Also, I love that that ZDNet article was like "These complaints aren't just from a handful of annoyed users. There are tens of Reddit threads about how the new UI sucks, and how people want their old Chrome tabs back. The complaints, from hundreds of users, go on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on.

Feedback about the new Chrome UI on Twitter is just as bad as it is on Reddit, with the same grievances being aired over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over." and every "over" and "on" was a link to a reddit or tweet griping about it.

3 Yeah, and it's a common one.  But most people don't know enough to change a setting, so Google pretends that means most people like the stupid new tabs.
I will admit that "go use someone else's product" is a pretty rare statement.  I guess it didn't occur to him that once you start leaving the Google ecosystem, you might consider other ways than just the browser you might find alternatives to Google.  (This is what irritates me the most about Microsoft's stupid Windows Phone adventure; they were growing userbase when it was still Windows Mobile, but seemed to have lost the plot with the rebranding and then basically gave up.  I'd probably be using it instead of Android if they hadn't done so.)
I'd like to see a handful of those Google people get some forced perspective and realize they are where Microsoft was ten years ago in some respects, but it would probably break some of them mentally.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
