Chrome is getting some new skins, the baseball one shown is pretty neat.

I don't trust it. Some people complained it sends stuff to Google.

Ya, the search suggestion thingy. It's easy to disable though.

How do you know it doesn't otherwise send stuff when in peak traffic? Wink

Easy in cases like this, where the binary isn't obscured with a polymorphic engine, and the full commented source code is publicly available for all to see (which is more than can be said for your favorite little operating system Wink).

If everyone thinks like "hey it's Open-Source, someone must have taken a look at it and see if it does something nasty" they can easily get away with it Razz

More along the lines of "I looked, there was nothing bad, and compiled it", actually.

Have you looked at all of Firefox's source yet? If not, get to it, lest ye be a hypocrite. And forget about ever using Windows again, since there is not even a source to be seen.

No i haven't looked at Firefox and couldn't care less if they collect data, since Mozilla don't have the same stuff Google has (like popular search engine and other services) Razz

Microsoft does. And nobody gets to see Windows' source except themselves and the government. Wink

You're worried about that old news story where the EULA originally said they would collect what you entered through Chrome and they could keep it. That was a snafu and Google retracted and changed it 3 days later and it states they don't.
