Cleanly uninstalling Google Chrome in OSX

So being the big nerd I am, I enjoy playing Fantasy Football.  The other day I noticed that Chrome was having an issue rendering projections, scores, and notes from player card previews on http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/.

Since I wasn’t really in the mood to debug, I decided to just cleanly remove Chrome to resolve my issue.  If you do feel like debugging you can do so via Chrome.app command arguments:

In terminal.app run the following:

open /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app --args --enable-logging --v=1

At any rate, after removing the following files in terminal.app, I was back to Fantasy Football browsing insanity:

rm -r /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/
rm -r ~/Library/Application\ Support/Google/Chrome/
rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist
rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.google.Chrome.plist.lockfile
rm ~/Library/Preferences/Google\ Chrome.plist
rm ~/Library/Preferences/Google\ Chrome.plist.lockfile
rm ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.google.Chrome.savedState
rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/CrashReporter/Google\ Chrome*.plist
rm ~/Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate/Actives/com.google.Chrome
rm -r ~/Library/Speech/Speakable\ Items/Application\ Speakable\ Items/Google\ Chrome/
