Google Chrome is evil

A few minutes ago I read an article where the indivdual browsers is potrayed as wrestler. In the picture, Google Chrome is described as innovative. How can it be called innovative when it doesn't even have a native RSS reader!
Also, Google Chrome messed up my internet browser settings after it set itself up as the default browser. I switched back to Internet Explorer but the "Internet key" on my keyboard is still defaulting to Google Chrome. I tried to uninstall Google Chrome and now the internet key no longer works! . I tried to set Internet Explorer as default browser (but it already is) and even went to "default program" in control panel and re-set Internet Explorer 9 as the default. I even re-installed IntelliType but nothing will work. Intellitype keep on telling me that the action cannot be performed. Eventually, I had to do a system restore to the time before I installed Google Chrome and the key starts working again. I will not be trying Chrome again!
Google Chrome doesn't offer that much of a performace difference from Internet Explorer 9. However, oddly enough, Google Chrome is the only browser (out of IE9 and Opera) that can properly parse the McDonald's McFlurry offer promotion claim link. The other browsers either redirect to the McDonald website (IE9) or just show about:blank (Opera).Bill Gates trapped in the Google Chrome old logo is taken from Beg to Differ's post Brand brief: Google begins to assimilate Microsoft – one interface at a time
