I have installed and uninstalled Google Chrome three times. How does the saying go: Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. But what do you say to the fourth time?
In the past I have had trouble with Google freezing up my computer while a message was presented stating High CPU Usage By Google Chrome. Even more disturbing is the fact that on occasions while I was working off line (not on the internet) my disk drive would start to whirl and the same message would appear - I had to ask myself: what is Google doing on my computer when I am not, to my knowledge, connected to the internet.
Today using Internet Explorer I had a message to update my Adobe Player and when I accepted the download Google Chrome was downloaded without notice automatically along with the Adobe update.
I have to admit the Chrome is faster and better on Blogger than Explorer but what information does it collect and why? I have seen that some of the pictures I download on my blog appear in Google Images without my consent (unless it is in the small print of the Google policy we have to agree to to use the product.)
Thanks to the Patriot Act we know Google collaborates with the government on data collection - but...
I am back on with Google Chrome - and fool me four times and I am officially a fool.
