Why Chrome 2.0 Dev was Deleted

I deleted Chrome 2.0 from my system on Friday for one very powerful reason: When it is installed, it makes itself the default browser.

Its performance gains and light weight were impressive. But its invasion of my system was uncalled for.

No matter which browser you set to be the default browser, Chrome 2.0 prevents that browser from regaining control. If you click a link in another program, Chrome launches, even if you set MSIE or Firefox or Safari as the default browser.

I thought that kind of behavior was behind browser manufacturers.
