You're asking fine questions, but nobody here is advocating for Chrome
nor can we answer those questions even if we were. They should be
asked of Google upstream.
"nods, I get a little over the top when it comes to accessibility. I
believe I have asked google at some point. Not directly of course, but
through the chromium bug tracker. The answer is something like, we're
trying to provide a uniform experience, so use our addons. Doublespeak
for it's easier controlling accessibility our own way, rather than
making code to support at-spi and atk on linux, msaa and such on
windows, and whatever mac has. Mind you this is not proof, just what I
remember hearing from google. I keep chromium around on my arch system,
testing to see if it ever become accessible. So far it hasn't.
