If you own a Macbook and are running Snow Leopard I can guarrantee that you cannot watch video using the Google Chrome web browser.
I have posted the question in many Google forums challenging Google employees to explain the “WHY NOT” or “HOW COME”.
If I do get an answer to why we Apple users cannot watch video on that browser it will be posted here. In the meantime it is back to ole Safari because Firefox is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay toooooooooo sloooooooooooooooow now. I am not fussy on Safari but what can I say that hasn’t been said about Safari.
Stay Tuned…as they say…

Google’s web browser is the BEST, well until today that is. Chrome stopped playing video, including all videos on Google’s own YouTube.
I have to switch to Firefox or Safari to watch flash video…HTML5 maybe?

Can Firefox Be Saved?
So says its’ Co-Founder…
Many of you will remember the 1990’s when Netscape took a huge chunk from Microsoft’s web browser: IE’s 90% market share.
In fact it was during these web wars that the mighty Netscape was taking down by Microsoft. What happened doesn’t matter today. What matters today is that Firefox is being intentionally let sink below the other browsers.
Chrome, Google’s web browser is winning the race this time. It is faster and more people are switching over to Chrome. Even Apple’s Safari and Microsoft IE8 are gaining ground. This is serious.
I was a former Netscape user and NEVER did like IE and still don’t. This is sad times again; a decade since Netscape faded away.
To be honest, I have been test-driving Chrome and find it very interesting and fast. The only hold back to Firefox for me right now is a app that I happen to use that isn’t available for Firefox. However, I just might forget about the app and make the complete jump toChrome and click that little checkbox that asks something like: “Do you want to make Chrome your default browser?” Answer is soon to be YES 😦 not without regret.
To get the scoop from the guy who designed Netscape and Firefox and has moved to Facebook, read this interesting article on the demise of Firefox: CLICK HERE FOR FULL ARTICLE in Techcrunch
