The Chromium Development Team and the people in this group that read
and send emails daily giving feedback and helping the projects become
one the best browsers have been doing an amazing job, no doubts.
However, since the first release of this browser, the team had three
extremely important values in mind: Security, Simplicity and specially
Speed. This values really made the Chromium project be the best
browser out there, the fastest, the safest and the easiest to use.
Unfortunately, it seems, things are starting to change.
Google Chrome is not the fastest browser out there anymore. Actually,
I have noticed it is taking too long compared to other browser to
start up and according to this article http://lifehacker.com/browser-speed-tests/
by a trusted source(LifeHacker) Chrome is even behind IE9 in 4th place
between the most used browsers.
Google Chrome has also lost its supper security status also, after
been hacked a couple of months ago as seen in these trusted websites
and after indicating safe pages as presenting malicious codes.
And finally, simplicity is past, Chromium's new tab page is really
giving up on one of the chromium's value and giving place to a
complicated UI for most people(although I love it) specially the new
bookmarks section of the page.
Chromium and Chrome have been my favorite browser since a long time.
As Gates would say it: "Let's keep it that way."
Maybe its time to get back to our values to give our users the best
browser possible. Anyone agrees?
