I stopped. Maybe this statement is true but I don't believe it because of the following. I was once logged into my gmail account from my office machine and I did some web browsing with Firefox passing from Google. I clicked some links. The same evening I looked up the same keywords from home using Safari and the Google search engine (different IP, different OS, different web browser). I was again connected to my gmail account. Google showed me the same results, but the links that I had clicked in the office machine were presented as being already visited from my home machine! I repeated the procedure to be sure and always the outcome was the same. So, Chrome or not, Google surely tracks your web browsing habits through your account.
Same here. Not only because he's a Google employee but that the article is also old.
I thought Chrome syncs tabs on all your devices. If that's the case, then they need to store the URL's so they can serve them to you when on another device.
The software being open source doesn't automagically mean it's safe. I think 'Bob' made a good point:
Matt — since this post was a conspiracy-theorist pre-emptive strike, and you mentioned that Chrome is open source, I assume you’ve read that online posts about how Chrome isn’t actually open source, but that Chromium (not what people download and not available to the general public) is actually the browser version from Google which is being referred to as open source. Just wanted to make sure you’d seen that and followed up on it to verify what the truth of the matter is. — Bob Waldron
David Pogue writes this of Google Chrome in the New York Times:
Will Google ensure that its own services run better in Chrome than in other browsers? Is this part of Google’s great conspiracy?
That’s a no and a no. Chrome is open-source, meaning that its code is available to everyone for inspection or improvement — even to its rivals. That’s a huge, promising twist that ought to shut up the conspiracy theorists.
