Chrome is, for many people, the first thing installed on a new MacBook. It makes sense: in its early days Chrome gained a reputation for being lightweight and fast. It was better than Safari and Firefox, people said. And it was true, at the time. It’s not the case anymore. In fact, I’d argue that you shouldn’t use Chrome on a MacBook if you can avoid it. Over the years Chrome became a bloated program that doesn’t integrate well with OS X, and it happened so slowly most Chrome users haven’t noticed.

  • The Confusing Extension/App/Whatever Ecosystem
  • Google Doesn’t Need Help Watching You
  • Mac Support Feels Like an Afterthought

  • Safari Has Gotten Really Good
