I really recommend you give Bhut Jolokia a try. Yes, it is very, very, very hot, but obviously you don't use that much of it on a meal. Personally I prefer it to Habaneros - they have a bitter taste to them IMHO, while Bhut is really quite sweet and fruity, once you get past the heat. However it's advisable to use gloves when handling it (picking your nose or rubbing your eyes can be an experience afterwards). Also to get rid of the initial "shock", try frying it in oil for a while before adding anything else to the pan (if you do, take care of proper ventilation though, the stuff really can irritate your lungs).

Even if I were to run Windows, which I don't, and would be inclined to run random programs from the net with admin privileges, which I certainly am not, and even if admittedly there are some situations where modifying the... file that shall not be named is beneficial, you have to admit the guy is desperately in need of medication. And many of those points are redundant.

I really have no experience with ChromeOS, but I'm guessing you can't (isn't that HTML5 only as well?). I suppose you could replace the webkit/blink libraries in Android with something else, with the risk of breaking some applications; the point was that your application can use another rendering engine in the first place. As for your last question, absolutely yes. My S3 came with the usual assortment of Google apps and Play Store, but sans Chrome.

Can I run a WebKit based browser on FireFox OS?

From my very cursory understanding of Firefox OS I'm guessing that's a no - there are no native apps at all. But my point was, you can run Gecko on Android. You can't on iOS. Chrome on iOS is really just a wrapper around UIWebView, you don't get to use the V8 Javascript engine. Whether this is reasonable due to security issues or just plain anticompetitive is debatable.

You can swap it out if you've jailbroken, or simply write your own app with any engine you like (which works fine for personal or enterprise use).

This point I've never quite fully understood - people keep complaining about how insecure Android is (which is a debate for another thread). Yet when discussing shortcomings of iOS, the answer is always "jailbreak" (which might or might not be available, tethered or perhaps not). As it is, at work I've been developing an app for iPad that is HTML5-based. And the performance is worse than what Mobile Safari would offer. If you want your HTML5 app available on the App store, this is a fact you'll just have to accept. This is also the reason you shouldn't expect Firefox on iOS anytime soon.
