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.

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