Google Chrome bug outs users seeking anonymity.

Quote:
A bug in the latest version of the Google Chrome browser could leak the identity of users trying to surf anonymously, developers warn.
The flaw means that domain-name queries are made by a user's local network even when Chrome is configured to used a third-party proxy. Users typically use proxies to conceal their local IP address in an attempt to browse anonymously. When the feature is set up, domain-name queries are supposed to be funneled through the proxy, rather than being made by a user's local network.
