I am uninstalling Google Chrome for now, but I may try it again in the future

Please provide any additional detail on your reason for uninstalling:

Chrome has recently decided to close immediately whenever I try to open it. I click the Chrome icon in my Start menu, the Chrome window sort of flickers into existence for a split-second before disappearing. This is the second time it's behaved like this; last time I solved the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling again, but I'm sick of dealing with it.

Furthermore, I've found that Chrome has serious trouble with a lot of sites. In particular, MSDN developer help pages (which I find myself using a lot these days) tend to have all their text shoved into a unreadably tiny column on the left side of the window. It also seems to have trouble with redirects; some sites I visit will redirect perfectly normally with every other browser I've used (IE, Firefox, Safari), but Chrome will inform me that the site doesn't exist (or something like that, I've forgotten exactly).

I really liked the home page with easy-to-click buttons for the places I visit most often, and the search box that magically appeared there after I'd used wordreference.com a few times was pretty cool, too. However, as far as actually browsing the web goes, Chrome seems to offer no advantages over Firefox, and for the most part is vastly inferior. I may try Chrome again in a year or so if I hear you guys have ironed out the kinks, but I'm pretty fed up with it at the moment.
