So, what do I "hate" about Google Chrome?

Well, as I have mentioned earlier, "hate" is a strong word. But then that's probably a good/captivating headline :)

I love Google Chrome for a lot of reasons, including its speed, clean tabbed interface, the process sandboxing of each tab, ...

The one thing that makes me irk and my blood boil at times is the fact that it makes me think someone in their design team probably wanted to do something different and ended up changing the sizes of the minimize, restore and (especially) close buttons at the top right corner. Quite often I almost end up clicking the close button instead of the restore or minimize, thanks to the size differences between this and other applications - on Windows XP.

Do you use Chrome? Do you find this irritating? Is there a reason this is designed this way?!! This probably is one reason, but I definitely find this appearance/behavior troublesome - maybe no fault of Google, but wish there was an easy way to resolve this.

Suggestions? Apart from upgrading Vista / to Windows 7 / Linux?

Well newer versions of chrome were designed with windows 7 in mind.
