Pretend you have a spreadsheet, for example an Excel spreadsheet. You want to do something with it online, because that's what everyone wants to do with stuff.
Excel is kinda cool, in a way, in that, if you copy several columns and rows of a spreadsheet and paste it into a non-spreadsheet area, you get newlines for the end of a row and tabs to delimit columns. This is useful, because then you know that, when you have to turn that chunk of spreadsheet into a data structure, you can split on newline to get every row, and then you can split on tab to get every column.
That splitting is something I usually prefer to do on the server side. I write my server-side in Perl, and it can very easily split on newlines and tabs. I write my client-side with the help of jQuery, which I do not believe to be at fault.
I'm using Chrome 18.0.1025.56 beta-m right now. I also use Firefox. I mostly use Firefox for Facebook, because I can't load some Facebook games with Chrome. I don't normally mind that: it reminds me not to play around when I'm busy doing something else. Here, Firefox proved to me that Chrome is the problem, not my code. And I'm saved some, because my users for this tool use Firefox.
Still, it makes me mad.
