Google Chrome flaw

This is just a bit of info about Google Chrome which you might find useful in case you are considering switching browsers. Google Chrome apparently has a flaw which prevents it to download large files. And by large files I mean anything bigger than 25MB. Today, to my utter disappointment and dismay, I discovered that I couldnt download a 26MB .bin file (the installation file of Google Earth).

This is indeed a bug and it has been reported in the Chromium development pages. It has been reported by many users and the worst part some of them got stuck while downloading files which ran into GBs!

So if you're planning to download a really large file (or even a small one apparently), at least anything more than 25MB, use Firefox.
