Google Chrome and privacy
Tue, Sep 2, 2008 02:39 PM
So, Google Chrome is out. If you don't know, it's Google's new browser. I downloaded it on my Windows XP machine and tried it out. I found this curious thing in the options.
So, I thought, I will click "Learn more" to see what they are watching. I get this.
So, I unchecked the box. Let's hope the premature launch is the reason there is no more information out there.
UPDATE: The page comes up now and says:
Information that's sent to Google includes crash reports and statistics on how often you use Google Chrome features. When you choose to accept a suggested query or URL in the address bar, the text you typed and the corresponding suggestion is sent to Google. Google Chrome doesn't send other personal information, such as name, email address, or Google Account information.
So, if you use their suggestions, they know it. And it tracks what features you use. Hmm, I think I will disable.
