Cyberdog Chrome's UX is so bad, and of course its Google ownership is suspect. Why the hell is it so popular? Ugh.

Adam Douglas On desktop, I think Chrome offers the best UX. On mobile, however, I think there are some serious mistakes. Safari does have the best flow in this regard. Swiping left and right to go backwards/forwards through browser history is so good that on Chrome OS this is actually implemented (two finger gesture on the mouse). No swipe-history + that awful idea of pulling-down-to-refresh (sometimes it doesn't work, sometimes it works when you just wanted to scroll...) make mobile Chrome a bit of a pain. Sure, it's calibration, but I shouldn't have to calibrate myself to use that, it should be a button. I like mobile Chrome's approach to tabs

Mark Dain Chrome has a very simple, clean UI, what don't you like about it?

Cyberdog The thing that set me off this particular time is that the back and forward buttons were not working as expected, even on a site which wasn't doing any dumb AJAX tricks that might normally cause that to happen. Chrome was failing to maintain a proper history stream at the level that NCSA Mosaic had nailed a quarter century ago or so.
