Google To Phase Out Sync, Other Services

BECAUSE IT ONLY WORKS DOWN TO YOUR MACHINE, unlike Firefox, which is harder to use but at least you don't auto-invoke a download TO the machine you're on, and you can configure the sync to include MERGE with your machine, rather than only a down-to synching.
So if Chrome would work more like Firefox but without the arcane Firefox password 'recovery key' nonsense, synching with Chrome would have been good. As it stands, whatever damage it did to my machine here (XP Pro, main machine), I can't install it again, even though the registry has been cleaned of Google Chrome entries.
Chrome's cookie handling is the best. It has some endearing features and extensions; enough, to warrant using it. But what it gets wrong is really wrong: unreadable url at the lower left, arcane structures you have to guess at, way too much white space, stupid design for bookmarks and their organization, lack of exportability, arcane help (come on, what's a 'host pattern'), can't zoom text only, can't find where it stores your passwords so you can back them up, etc.
