RE: Google Chrome

Elizabeth,

Thank you for the positive vote.  I believe proper ground level planning
leads to less expense later.  Of course, none of us is omniscient, so we
can't foresee every problem that can and will occur.  But, if companies  are
going to produce something for public use,  they must consider as many
aspects of that public as possible.  Unfortunately, the blind and visually
impaired are at the bottom.

disabilities in particular, cannot think in terms of going "from the general
to the particular" in their reasoning.

When a software company does think about the particular, in this case people
with disabilities, they make a better product for everyone.  Its been proven
in the "real world" with things like curb cuts, closed captioning, talking
phones, larger stalls in the rest rooms, etc.
  

Gene said: >>It has long been my contention that
if they would consider people with disabilities at the ground level, we
wouldn't have so many complaints and limitations.  

Well said!  Not only would people with disabilities have less complaints and
limitations, but EVERY user would have less complaints and limitations.  No
software user should have to struggle with software.

I also tried installing Google Chrome with no success.  Maybe Google should 
stick to search engines and leave the browser field to Microsoft and 
Mozilla.
