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 have lived here in the United Kingdom since the age of two. I've always liked science and engineering so, after graduating, I took up a career in telecommunications and datacoms, with an emphasis in systems engineering and assurance. I have various interests in programming, photography, and pedalling furiously on my mountain bike! I also enjoy travelling off the beaten path, seeing the natural world, and meeting different peoples in their varied cultures. I created this the main website site many years ago and it has undergone significant changes over that time. However, it continues in its main role as a collection of my travel photos, and of other miscellaneous images such as digital paintings. I've also added this blog which allows me to rant and rave, mainly about absurdity and irrationality, but can include articles on almost any topic ranging from mountain biking equipment to colour management workflows. Perhaps there's something here that might interest you!
