  • Chrome's for bumpers and kitchen appliances

    I will not be installing or using Google Chrome. First of all, I do not see a need for another browser. Second, I have been reading several bulletins about security issues and processes that come with Chrome (and are installed as services without you knowing). It installs googleupdate.exe and doesn't delete it if you uninstall, it also keeps running it when you kill it.

    Chrome constantly talks to Google - that scares me. It reports everything you do with Chrome to Google. That scares me even more. Please read this paragraph about to what you agree when installing it:

    "By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any content which you submit, post or display on or through, the services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling Google to display, distribute and promote the services and may be revoked for certain services as defined in the additional terms of those services."

    I'll wait for Google's next version, "Rust" that should at least have a good download manager amongst many other things. The heck with the shine!
