Google promises Chrome is not phoning home with your Web data

Filed under
Google

Despite the fact that I really like the Google Chrome Web browser, I gave up using it last month around the same I gave up Coke Zero. I gave up Coke Zero simply because of the caffeine. My reason for giving up Chrome was a little more complicated.

Chrome is a terrific Web browser. I’ve never had a problem with Chrome itself, but I’ve become more and more wary about trusting Google with my data. Those feelings of mistrust intensified recently when the company released Google Buzz, as I explained in my article Why Google Buzz confirmed our two worst fears about Google.

Google’s haphazard attitude toward data privacy was my biggest concern, and it made me want to limit to amount of data I gave to Google.
