    “Features that Google Chrome offers that other browsers do not have”
    “Resize Textboxes” – Safari was the first to have, Opera can have it with an userjs and Firefox might have an extension for it.

      Firefox does have an extension for it, which I’ve been using for years. Firefox 3.7 already supports resize textboxes by default and is very neat.

    every chrome’s features listed is implemented one way or other in other browser’s except for the task manager(which if you open will sure to get you a MI)i personally think opera’s addressbar is the best which serves both as an addressbar and as a searchfield and you can create any number of default searches easily…

    ” Microsoft: HTML5 is the future of the web, will only support H.264 ”
    The title is almost an oxymoron :lol: HTML5 is the future of the web, of that, there is no doubt, but H264 will never be part of HTML5 as long as it’s not open source :lol: All Microsoft is doing is ensuring Flash will be around and kicking for a few more years. And I remember that Flash is open, unlike some people say.

    ” Detention Awarded for Using Foxfire.exe? ”
    Why did this never happen to me? I think I’d just throw myself to the ground and force whoever wanted me out to pick me up. Ahah!

    ” Google patches Chrome for second time this month ”
    I remind you all that Google doesn’t disclose vulnerabilities, which means they are there for longer, because they can’t fix them with the community’s help… No wonder they’re doing it step by step, ahah.

    ” Features that Google Chrome offers that other browsers do not have ”
    My immediate list would be: absolutely none. But then I read the article. Resize textbox is present in Opera and Safari AFAIK, and Firefox has an extension. Task Manager is not a feature, it’s a work around. The Omnibox is not a feature, it’s a productivity hinder. Shortcut creation, Firefox had it for years, then they dropped it because nobody cares about that. Translation is present in Firefox through extensions, with much MUCH better functionality. Super Tabs are like sucky tabs compared to Tab Mix Plus.

    Yeah, right…
