No we all knew it.
It just happened to be a spam bot that posted a mostly coherent post about a topic in the correct forum.  That alone deserves praise.

Isn't that how Skynet came about?  It was a spambot that got too smart and eventually gave humanity a "Free Sample of Nuclear Weapons"?

Wasn't that done also in a TNG episode?

Firefox is now shitty due to the plugin container.exe that comes along with it. Its taking up too much RAM.

Firefox is turd on all platforms. It has been leaking memory like a bitch since 1.5. That project has had opportunity after opportunity to correct this issue, but never took it seriously. The time has come when a better browser emerged, and that browser is Chrome.

No.

Chromium and its downstream Chrome have many advantages over Firefox, but they also lack many features by comparison. Chromium caters to a different audience than Firefox, but neither one is "better." For my purposes, Firefox is still miles ahead because of the features it offers me - partly through add-ons - that no other browser currently does. As I mentioned earlier, Firefox also runs on a much wider range of platforms.

Chrome has a ton of add-ons.
Platform compatibility is irrelevant to being the best browser, it has nothing to do with the performance of the application. If you deeply care so much, why don't you help fork Chromium to be a completely portable version.

Why wouldn't platform compatibility be a factor in determining the best web browser?

I was using Firefox until Trekky convinced me to Chrome. I like it quite a lot. All in all I'm not too picky about browsers though. I dislike IE and Safari, and everything else is all right.

I didn't claim otherwise.

Platform compatibility is irrelevant to being the best browser, it has nothing to do with the performance of the application.

On the contrary, my terrible friend, it has everything to do with the performance of the application. For instance, Internet Explorer does not perform at all on my operating system.

If you deeply care so much, why don't you help fork Chromium to be a completely portable version.

Why would I want to do that, when I can just use Firefox?

I'm using Firefox 5, it seems alright. I managed to navigate successfully to this page and post this reply, so it has that going for it.
I don't know what you're implying, but you're probably wrong.

I'd put less of that on the browser, and more on the special needs teacher who helped you.

I just peer down my ethernet cable. Depending on how I tilt it I can see different websites, and I blow down it in a certain way to type messages.
