I installed Google Toolbar in IE8 on Windows Vista.
It took up an entire cpu on a 4 core processor, ballooned IE load time from 1 second to 15 seconds, caused tabs to crash, and just made the entire system sluggish.
And that was after I turned all the toolbar’s options off.
It’s too high of a price to pay for seeing the PR of websites. Thanks, but no thanks Google. It’s now disabled.
Every day I get up, turn my system on and spend a few hours reading the blogs I follow. And every day I read posts hating Microsoft for reasons that can only be explained by a serious misunderstanding of reality.
Here I present you Google Failures of Epic Proportions (a.k.a the other side of the story).
||Fail, no one uses
||Buyout, users don’t come
||Hype, does not deliver
||Mediocrity, does not compete
||Poor vendor uptake, too many issues
