GOOGLE CHROME NO LONGER DEFECTIVE

A review of all nine of the examples below in Chrome browser Version 38.0.2125.111 downloaded 05-Nov-2014 revealed Chrome to be displaying normally in all cases.


The Google Chrome web browser displays web pages with material missing, as can be seen in eight examples below.  I compare Chrome results to FireFox and Safari, but couldn't find a way to download an Explorer browser to my Mac.

Redacted chunks, together with absence of signs that material has been redacted, hurt both an author and his reader by making a work seem incoherent and illogical.  Because the defect is not obvious, it may be overlooked for a long time, and so the damage may by prolonged.

I notified Google of this defect very approximately on 01-Jan-2014, and again on 12-Jan-2014, but have received no reply and see that the defect remains.

One positive thing can be said about the Google staff — that they're not using their search engine to hush up this complaint.  The very next day after posting the complaint, a Google search for "GOOGLE CHROME DEFECTIVE" (with quotation marks) gave this web page first place.

When on 14-Jan-2014 at 12:16am PST, with eight EXAMPLES showing below, I checked THIS web page in GOOGLE CHROME to see if it was displaying properly, I found that it was, which is undoubtedly because the page is so short.  Checking a long web page on 14-Jan-2014 at 11:6pm PST turned up EXAMPLE 9 below.

Never mind the size differences — they appeared when I forced each screen shot to be 300 pixels wide.  It's the order of presentation that matters.
  Chrome botches unpardonably:

Google Chrome snatches some boxed material from farther down the web page and inserts it under the picture of Vladimir Putin riding a bear.



EXAMPLE 9

Example 9 shows Google Chrome moving a boxed heading containing bold text, along with a line of regular text beneath it, downward.  Similar errors of sequencing were observed on the same page, but are not reproduced here.
