Google Chrome debases...

There is, one supposes, somebody at Google who thinks they have their finger on the pulse. They might even believe their facile messages

are witty and useful.

I do not agree. "Aw, Snap!" means less than nothing to me. Worse, it is possessed of none of the attractions which might make me learn what it means and consider owning and using it.

Better the blunt clarity of IE10's "This page can't be displayed' or the simple explanation "Safari can't find the server".

Is there, I wonder, a Google Chrome regional preference for those who prefer to speak English (as opposed to some descending, homogenised, empty babble)?

I would ask Google, but fear I would not enjoy the answer's language.

  1. That particular error is shown in the case that the browser frame itself crashes (because of an issue with flash plugins, et al), not a server or connection issue. Since each tab is it's own process in Chrome, it prefers to leave the tab open so that you can refresh it instead of mucking through your history. The presumption is that the case when the browser completely crashes is an undesireable and rare circumstance.
