Firstly, let me say that I don't think it's your job to coerce your child.

Anyway, I got into programming when I was around 13 because I was a leader of a "clan" for the game Delta Force 2 and I wanted us to have a webpage. Now I'm a software engineer and I work for NASA. But, I'd have never gotten into if my parents didn't take the parental restrictions off of my AOL account so that I could play online.

Cheers

but I feel pretty confident Microsoft Internet Explorer's is worse. I recall reading the EULAs of Windows Media Player 10 and 11 were particularly harrowing experiences.

In any case, if you are concerned about your privacy or don't like advertisements, install privoxy.

Otherwise, enjoy your Chrome experience! It is significantly and quantifiably better than the competition.

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
