Out of the Blue

Fed up with Chrome almost always starting up with a complaint that it hadn't been shut down properly, I did a little Googling to see if the source of this problem could be identified. I found threads on this dating back years, with the most tried and true solution being to uninstall the browser, delete all its orphaned subdirectories, and start from scratch. Not having the time or inclination to subject myself to all that, I tried a secondary solution that involved deleting some .tmp files Chrome seems to have generated somewhere along the way. This seems to have mostly cured things, though I had a single incident since trying it. Hopefully this will stick, as it was a bit of a pain.

Now my nerd radar is got me interested. Would it be easy for you to repeat the same experiment with Chrome and see how many formats it supports?

Chrome support 10 formats when dragging hyperlinks. Both Chrome and Firefox support the text/x-moz-url format, which provides simple text data consisting of the URL on the 1st line and the page title on the 2nd line.

I saw only one data format shared by all 3 browsers (Chrome, IE9, Firefox) which includes the page title, and that was a standard FileGroupDescriptor/FileContents format(s). It basically just puts a shortcut file on the clipboard. I have no idea why Blue's HTML editor doesn't like the shortcut file provided by Firefox.

There's another possibility that I didn't think of earlier. Since it's the recipient's job to choose an available format, some programs might go with Format A over Format B just because it comes first in the list. In other words you could have Firefox and Chrome providing the exact same formats, but depending on the order in which they're added you might see different results. The recipient has to be the one to prioritize that stuff.
