hmmm...

Can you share with me Apple's superior services to Google Docs, YouTube, Gmail, Play, and oh yeah please link me to Apple's superior Search engine as well, I'd love to begin using it right away.

I would list more, but these are services I use every day.

What's junk about it?

I have all 3 browser installed, and pinned to my task bar, and here's what my daily usage is.

36

I used Firefox for years, but ever since Chrome came along, I just can't seem to use Firefox anymore, and yes, I keep up with the updates just to see what's up. I have version 11 installed right now.

Gmail watcher (checks your email, shows an icon with # unread emails on the toolbar), FlashGot, DownThemAll, Boomerang, Adblock Plus (last I checked, the "Chrome equivalent" was junk), Youtube to MP3 converter, and there's an add-on that lets you type in foreign characters, like letters with an accent, or umlaut, etc. by just hitting Ctrl-Shift- : ( : for umlaut, ' for accent, etc.), (letter you want to type). Basically... there's no way I'm going to bother scoping out all the add-ons; I'll almost certainly miss at least one that I find essential. But I do use Chrome for "basic browsing", ie. whenever Firefox is being stupid (not too often.. but some sites just don't mesh with FF).

Not that Chrome is bad, I've just been using Firefox since before Google Chrome existed.

GMail watcher - got it. It lets me reply within the extension's toolbar button, and it makes all e-mail links open a new compose page in GMail.
FlashGot - I found a viable alternative: clickable links extension + open all selected links extension.
DownThemAll - I have Internet Download Manager, which lets me copy and paste a list of links to download.
Boomerang is on Chrome.
Adblock Plus - I've had it for quite a while and even though it is still in Beta, it works fine.
Youtube to MP3 - There's a page for that.
Symbols - Pretty cool, not something I'd ever really use but Chrome has "Fancy Characters." You click on the toolbar button and it pops up a small window with all the characters you can think of. You click what you want and it adds it without closing the list of special characters. I think it does also let you assign your own keyboard shortcuts to whatever characters you want.

I've yet to find a USEFUL extension from Firefox that is not available (or an equal or even better alternative) on Chrome. Not bashing you in that regards, just pointing out that "lack of extensions" has long been scratched off Chrome's list.

I very much doubt the accuracy of this statistic. I do remote computer repair and I connect to 20-30 customers computers a day. Most of them have IE or firefox, very few have chrome and the ones that do dont even know what it is or how it go on their computer.

Complete opposite for me. If you walk into Best Buy nowadays, every computer has Chrome installed and on the desktop. Not sure if they actually come that way. I think they do because back when Chrome final first released, Google announced they were going to make distribution deals.

IE sucks
Chrome steals your informations.
Not much remaining.

Here's the way I see it. I can either get glimpses of advertisements that are a complete waste of space, or I can get glimpses of ads that I may find useful. You do the math.

Shall we consider the fact that the only one that Apple competes with there is Gmai, as they operate an emal address service and inbox as part of iCloud.

Little stupid to say that Google is beating them at all these services such as Youtube considering Apple don't currently operate a product of that kind.



That's like saying Apple are kicking Googles behinds at producing better computers because of the Mac.
