Chrome will no longer work with open source Nvidia drivers on Linux.
@yogthos dang :(
i'm sure they have a reason, like correlated higher crash rates, but that's (1) not something they can release without a long approval process and (2) utterly useless for debugging the actual issues
@yogthos Also, I'm sure we all already know the best way to deal with driver issues:

@thinkMoult yeah nowadays I refuse to use Chrome ideologically. We need to have an alternative browser that's not owned by Google.
Meanwhile, Google has a huge vested interest in steering web tech towards their own goals. Stuff like AMP is downright scary in my opinion. They're abusing their position as both a major internet hub and a browser vendor. I don't think they're a trustworthy player.
The worst thing would be for them to dominate the browser market in my opinion.
Currently the application will tell you which CSS properties from it's internal stylesheet. And I'm starting to get to implementing cascade and inheritance.
@alcinnz @thinkMoult yeah we're basically down to those three, and Mozilla seems like the one without ulterior motives. Chrome is fundamentally untrustworthy in my opinion because Google has a big stake in being the center of the internet.
Apple tends to do their own thing, and they often cut corners in favor of performance. Safari on iOS is IE level non-standards compliant in my experience.
@yogthos And we return to Firefox...
@frank87 I switched last year, and every time I read something new about Chrome it makes me glad that I did
