I stopped using Chrome the *second* time it just stopped working correctly, because an extension I depended upon got "updated" and thus no longer worked. I can't stand having to figure out why things aren't working correctly anymore when I haven't changed anything. As long as it's impossible to lock down the software until *I* want to update it, I'll just opt out of Chrome.

All the companies I've worked for didn't allow a split-tunnel VPN from corporate laptops.

Split-tunnel pretty much kills the whole point of using a VPN.

That's from the corporate IT point of view.

From my own machine point of view, having all my traffic routed to my employer kills the whole point of having a fast Internet connection.
