Google's meta-business ideas prevent Chrome from improving. They refuse to give you good local URL suggestions when you're typing in the URL bar, because they want you to hit google servers and register the search.
Google's crippled Chrome by constantly making you search for everything, instead of just helping you like it should.
It refuses to do fast, local cache searches, for pages you have *just visited*, instead shunting you into either a totally impersonal site search, or forcing the site to have some kind of tracking on you.
They refuse to remove the download bar, or even to add a keypress to close it. Note: There is now an extenions which allows this, called "Disable Download Bar".
