Looks like an ad for Chrome, their new browser. So, did Ted just get up on the grumpy side of bed Chez Borepatch?
Well, maybe. But this is annoying, and they should know better. Consider:
- Chrome only runs on Windows XP and Vista. Their ad even says this.
- I'm running Ubuntu Linux, which is Teh Awesome, except for that Chrome-doesn't-run-on-Linux thing.
Kind of cool to see Windows ME. Macintosh and especially Linux is overrepresented here, maybe because I post a lot about Internet Security, and a lot of security guys run Linux.
OK, so they know I'm running Linux, and gave me an ad that was essentially "Nya, Nya - you can not haz Chrome!" If this were momandpop.com, then I wouldn't even notice. Momandpop.com maybe doesn't know all the ins and outs of Al Gore's Intarwebs.
But this is Google.
Well, maybe this is a Good Thing. When they become our new Internet Overlords and decide what the heck, let's try this Evil thing then maybe they will still be Teh Stupid and we'll be saved!
Man, I am grumpy this morning. Grumpy enough to grab two screen shots, even. Time to put on some Christmas music.
