Google returns to its evil ways


Just when I thought that those annoying Google popups telling me to install Google Chrome had gone way, those evil things made their return yesterday to IE7, IE9, Firefox 9 and 10, and Safari. Strangely that damn popup did not appear in Opera.

What does it take to destroy that annoying Google popup? Clearly Google are in-you-face about getting you to switch to their browser. Seems to be an abuse of their dominate position.

Dye Google Chrome popup, die!

"A traveller with a camera!" I was born in Tanzania but emigrated from Tanzania to the United Kingdom at the tender age of two where I now live. I work in the fields of telecoms, data networks, and cyber security. I have a keen passion in travel photography, pedalling furiously on my bicycles, and travelling off the beaten path to far flung places. “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints” has been a guide in my travels. But I do take more than pictures, and I leave with more than footprints; memories, emotions, and friendship.
