Chrome book

Google has had this for a bit, but its an interesting read. It's a comic that shows how they build and thought about making goggle chrome.

I have been a Chrome user for many years, from the start I think. And I have to admit they are slowly taking over my whole life, I have Google + on my Smart phone, and on my PC's obviously. I have it set to back up every picture I take or video on my phone so it saves them online, I keep them private but if I lose my phone I will be happy to still have all my photos.

I use Google Maps a lot, I have a Gmail email account, I have a tablet with google play store thing on it, dam Google really is taking over my life lol.

Edit: I also run the Seven Forums Overclocking leaderboards using Google Spreadsheet.

Most people believe Chrome is nothing more than a carbon copy of Safari

Alright you caught me/ called my bluff
I read a post iecustomizer on TechNet wrote and stated that,
It was a while back,
But I can't avoid it I'll be on a Android pretty soon too,
I always though Chrome was a bit to generic looking plus all of the privacy issue with Google in general but I still have Google toolbar in ie10 so I just can't do without it/ better spell checker than even Chrome I thought ?
Asked IECustomizer and here is his response,

Privacy issues are overblown. If you think you have privacy on the internet, that's everyone's first mistake. Anyone that was surprised of the NSA watching on us USA folk was not paying attention.
Is it right? Heck no. But I will say it again: Never put anything on your computer or online you do not want others to know.
Yes Google does track everything you do for the purpose of selling ads. Every other company does the same thing with ads. Google just does it a little smarter. The one thing I love about Google is they tell you everything they do right up front. They are more transparent on privacy and how they use your info compared to everyone else. Every other company you need a lawyer to interpret their privacy policy. You have to give them marks on that.

I will note though:
"The optional suggestion service included in Google Chrome has been criticized because it provides the information typed into the Omnibox to the search provider before the user even hits return. This allows the search engine to provide URL suggestions, but also provides them with web usage information tied to an IP address.
The optional feature to use a web service to help resolve spelling errors has privacy implications"

Yes, I am aware of this and opted in.
I also know that when using chrome they know the sites I visit in order to serve ads. But I use a ad blocker on most sites anyway, so this does not affect me. (Except forum sites as I want to support them.)
I don't sign into chrome. If you sign into chrome then they track what sites you go on in order to serve you ads.
From their policy though, you can stop this by pausing your web history and personal results.

I will add though, I mainly use firefox I like the addons better.
