From a different perspective, I actually like the news. What kept me in one browser or another was really the availability of add-ons. Some are on Chrome, so that even though i want to move- to try Pale Moon or something else- I find that I can't. I need this one for work, or that one for home. And even if there is a similar one on another platform, getting used to the changes and differences is a point of resistance in change. Using something different is enough of a point of resistance. We don't need more, IMO.
The reason I'm still on iOS? The apps. That's the lock in. And that's the same for any platform. The accessories are what keep you there in general, even as frustration mounts. Removing that seems like it would be a good thing, which is why I'm really surprised at the negativity towards it. And I haven't seen any argument that trumps that, which makes me think that with the uniform negativity towards it... I'm missing something.
Can anyone clue me in?
