I am with you on this one. Never did take a liking to chrome. I use firefox exclusively. Whether or not it has these same "issues" is beyond me. But aside from that ive never had issues with it.

Chrome is fast. That's why people use it. I have no mic, so I am safe.

I use Chrome all the time but they went down yesterday for a couple hours.
Maybe they were doing a search on me and got bored to death and fell asleep while hitting the off button.

I have nothing to hide,
nothing to be ashamed off,
and most important NO MONEY OR VALUABLE POSSESSIONS. zzzzzzz

IE 11 is the smoothest browser and uses far less resources in my laptop despite being considered as the one of the slowest in the internet benchmarks. Chrome is the fastest in loading websites but only a bit though. Chrome is just my backup for stubborn websites that doesn't like IE 11 standards mode.

Stopped using Chrome

Hi,

just thought I'd add that I stopped using Chrome a couple of years ago.

Reasons:

Chrome installs a unique ID with every installation and needs to be removed by the user.
Chrome installs Google Updater and it runs all the time.
Last time I used Chrome - updating never removed the old versions anyway. Maybe they've fixed this now.

If I wanted to use Chrome I'd probably choose to use SRWare Iron instead!

I suppose that all browsers have or have had vulnerabilities. The key thing is to be informed.
