Chrome Starting to Suck

I’m not sure how many of my readers are System Administrators or work in the IT field but I noticed a really frustrating issue with Chrome lately since they did a bunch of updates and no longer support SHA-1 SSL Certs.

Many of the systems I manage at work no longer work properly in the Chrome browser so I have to resort to using IE or Firefox to do my job. Issues like this is why I may eventually switch back to Firefox and move away from Chrome permanently.

Some of the system chrome no longer works properly with are:

  • Dell DRAC (java security issue)
  • McAfee EPO Server (acts flaky and doesn’t function properly in chrome)
  • Exchange Admin Center (one of the windows needed to manage users never loads in chrome)
  • SonicWall Analyzer (Error “Java Unsupported for this site”)
  • Any website with a SHA-1 Certificates
  • Also has issues with Self-Signed SSL Certificates
  • LastPass Autofill on some websites

Some other issues I’ve also noticed in Chrome are:

  • PDFS don’t automatically open in Chrome
  • NPAPI Plugin issue
  • DNS Timeout error messages

Looks like if Google continues on this path then I won’t be using Chrome at all anymore because it pretty much fails to function properly as a browser for anything I need to do in my day to day life.

  1. I have also noticed that strange things are happening. I really hope that Google fixes this because I really hate IE.
