Hmm-mm nutty chocolate aromatherapy!

Chrome came up because of IMO unwarranted claims of privacy worries in Windows 10 by those who use Chrome spyware.

Nope, no mixed memories or misunderstanding.
Must be a parallel universe then.

Probably this one?
https://www.google.com/chrome/browse...platform=win64

It downloads a 46.16 MB installer. Chrome may be a spyware or may not be, I dont know. I have it installed, but I usually dont use it.

But the above download is free from malware.

More interesting, what they used as a search example there.

So Chrome and peanut butter are interrelated.

If you don't like Google, but you want a Chromium-based browser you could try "SRWare Iron".

To install Chromium itself on windows. You would need to compile Chromium or use chocolatey to install it. I really don't know how safe chocolatey is to use. I have backup, I tested it myself. It does install all dependencies via command line or power shell.

Newer version of Opera are Chrome based.

Flash wouldn't be sandboxed-there might be some workarounds that I am not aware of.

Yea that evil google
It just works and that's usually what people care about
I would choose Chrome over Firefox if I was serious about dumping ie which isn't far down the road
Nor is dumping mse they do go together dump one you'd need to dump the other.

Getting back on topic, I've not tried the 10 Technical Preview as I'm waiting for either a CP, or I'll go with a very late TP as I'm interested in seeing how well a close to finished 10 will do with some old software. I'll probably go late to the free upgrade offer as well since I'll be waiting to see certain software and driver updates for 10.

On another note, thanks to all of those writing the 10 tutorials. It will help those of us who've not upgraded in awhile (8, etc.). Kari's very detailed Hyper-V tutorial will especially be of great use to me when I get there as I think I'll most likely make much greater use of that than I did 7's Virtual PC.

I did not have to compile my Chromium. I think I got it from here:

Download Chromium - The Chromium Projects

Mine is a portable version.

What was the worse OS that you have used? (not just windows)
Hello guys, What was the worse OS that you have used? (not just windows) For me, it was Windows ME, to me it was just Windows 98 with some big updates. But I say that system restore was a good idea.
