Comment Well, MS may as well change it anyway. (Score 1) 436

Simply assign each browser a random number, then sort them by each corresponding number. The current solution is over-engineered. It's till random, but lacks an even distribution of probability. They should make the very simple change to "fix" that, if for no other reason than just to be beyond reproach.

Comment Chrome actually steals some UI ideas from IE7 (Score 1) 948

such as eschewing a menubar and consolidating the commands in Page and Tool dropdown buttons.

Incidentally, Slashdotters bashed MS for doing this in IE7, but were silent about Google doing the same thing in Chrome. Which reminds me that slashdotters also bashed Microsoft for merging the Back/Forward navigation stack into a single dropdown control in IE7, but said nothing when Firefox 3 copied that idea. I only point out these things to show that slashdotters aren't the most objective analysts when it comes to judging UI.

That said, I agree with you that Chrome's UI is better than IE's, and I think Chrome's UI is the best of all browsers.
