    As for Chrome's powerful Omnibox, the intelligent location bar at the top of the browser that lets you type in URLs or search terms, data collection is still actively taking place. Anything typed into the box -- even if the enter key isn't struck -- could potentially be logged with the user's Internet protocol address, Google spokesperson Carolyn Penner told TechNewsWorld.

    I know you can turn auto suggest off and the omnibox feature but... this just doesnt sit well with me.

    As far as I know Google takes all issues corresponds to users privacy very seriously.

    The great illustration for this can be a story which occurred once in January 19, 2006 when Bush Administration demands search data on users and Google said no while AOL, MSN & Yahoo said yes.

    I think it is good illustration how seriously Google takes issues on users' privacy and why we can trust them.

    The whole article about this old story can be obtained here: http://blog.searchenginewatch.com/blog/060119-060352

    They have a great products and besides that Chrome is open source, so anyone can check the code.

    Why don't you worry people about M$ Windows operation system which is completely proprietorial software and nobody knows which data it submits to M$?

    I think it shows the most commonly visited pages, not the most recent. Actually I love this feature.

    I use greasemonkey with firefox. Does anyone know of any way to do greasemonkey type things with chrome?

    so buttons

    I thought the page you linked to said that it displayed the most recently visited sites, but I read it wrong. Doesn't matter anyways, you're linking to a joke, and I assume you're not using it as real criticism. If you are, then that's just silly, and I would be happy to quickly and easily prove it. But again, I assume that you're just joking, and will continue assuming so unless you tell me otherwise.

    Google actually not your farther and if you like porn and want to conceal that part of your life from your wife (or from your parents) for example, you need to take care about it by yourself, mate. Google will not help you

    I really like Chrome browser as it is quite fast and can combine tabs in any way.

    madsny,you registered just to post this? hm,ok..
    Thinking the same thing.

    I uninstalled chrome today. Didn't have a good feeling about the googleupdate.exe that's always running in the processes even when your not running the app. Call me paranoid though Im sure you could disable updates. But eh i'm happy with firefox 3 for now.

    Does anyone else actually think it looks rather nice?

    Since I personally detest the UI of Windows apps, I guess it's not a big deal for me that Chrome isn't consistent with the rest of the OS (plus on Macs I've had to get used to every app having a different interface theme, despite the HUI guidelines :P). It looks clean, friendly and minimalistic, which I think also does a good job of describing the browser.

    never heard of HUI, perhaps you mean GUI or HUD?
    I think the GUI is okay but they should design a CI for the interfaces, google, Google Earth, Picasa and the webapps all have a different GUI - that´s just messy and irritates customers.

    btw. if you like it that much here is the skin for firefox:

    HUI = Human User Interface

    Apple set out the HUI guidelines as suggestions for how all OS X apps should be designed, so that we can have consistency. Most apps nowadays obey them really well, but older ones (Flash 8 is a bloody hellspawn of UI with almost every button, panel and keystroke broken in at least one way; I've actually had to change the colour of the Actions panel background so that my cursor doesn't disappear when I try to select text. Also the top row of buttons has disappeared in that panel just now) don't follow the trend, and Apple themselves are quite guilty of breaking this document, at one point giving GarageBand, Safari, iTunes and Finder separate interfaces.

    Can't say I use Firefox. I'm a Safari man myself (interface is just that bit more responsive than Firefox on the Mac), but I must admit that I rather like the look of that Add-On.

    how can you test chrome if you are a "safari man" - its not even released for the mac.
    I hear from many mac users that safari is way quicker as many of the other browsers but on the windows platform Apple software is a royal pain in the ass: slow,buggy + it feels like a parasite (registers nasty services, autostart and lots of other unwanted crap).

    Chrome might be interesting on the mac - like if it will be faster and more responsive as the safari or not- or how about linux ( I personally dont like firefox on linux: it feels clunky and fat). Can´t wait for the next updates on chrome

    I have a Windows VM that I mainly use for playing visual novels and writing F9/F10 games in FlashDevelop. Used Chrome on that, and also tried it out when I dual-booted into Windows (since I was wondering if Spore played any better when it wasn't running through Cider).

    Yes, Safari is a fair bit clunkier on Windows, but it feels very familiar to use (imports Mac's Lucida Grande system font and even has its own dlls just so that it'll render text with Mac anti-aliasing rather than Windows ClearType). However, horizontal scrolling doesn't work for some reason, it crashes a lot on one of my PCs (maybe I have an old version?), and it takes a while to open.

    I myself am not too enthusiastic about Apple's software on Windows. iTunes is bloatware, but people are forced into using it because of the Music Store DRM and iPod monopoly. Quicktime Player is in my experience and opinion the fastest, most powerful player of all, so long as you upgrade to Pro. Better even than VNC, if you install the Perian plugin to get avi codecs and suchlike... but there's no plugins for the Windows version, so it becomes almost pointless to have it there. As for the services thing, I don't think we get that happening on the Mac... and if we do, it's not such a problem; Quicktime is heavily integrated into the OS, so having some part of it running at all times wouldn't be a bad thing.

    I don't think Chrome will be responsive on the Mac. Cross-platform apps always run like crap on OS X (Flash 8 being a prime example), and even ground-up native rewrites are usually just as poorly done as simple Java ports. As for the Linux version of Chrome, it's already available to build & run (though I'm not sure that it's a 'working' state yet):

    I can't quite pinpoint to where I read about Chrome's future vision on taking on web apps and making them usable offline n such (its an embedded feature within itself, so it runs more stable than say against other browsers that has to download a plug-in for that feature.) So it bodes optimism for cross platform and mobile apps, so I thought I'd share this info around, and my main point is that its not just another cute/neat/cosmetic browser alternative.

    But I freakin lost the link! Bah! *frantic search*
