sorry did i read it rightly "NEW????"

did u actually say "NEW???" which means something that has just arrived....


#3

not new but actually people are still getting used to it. means numbers using it not much as using internet explorer and firefox. so here we are discussing the features of Google Chrome


#4

I tried many browsers like safari, opera, internet explorer , and also this google chrome, but they are all trash,

the best is mozilla firefox all versions before 3.0


#5

I am always weary of Google due to privacy reasons.

I always prefer Firefox and Opera


#6

I don't think so that Google play with user privacy. If its not so than kindly explain how they do that?


#7

google chrome is good one. i like its interface


#8

When I read first review of Chrome, I was like "eew". People always accuse Microsoft for privacy infringement, Google actually did it in Chrome.

When you install Chrome it give some option for "Usage tracking". It create unique ID of your installation. Keep record of your usage and upload it to Google's server.

There is a freeware UnChrome available to remove that unique ID (you can use Chrome without usage tracking).

Because Google Chrome is open source. That's why anyone can build it by removing "usage tracking" and particularly "unique ID". A German group already did it. They release unofficial Chrome build known as SRWare Iron. If you have concern about your usage tracking then you can also try Iron.

Talk about privacy. Some people have no issues about it (like nudist group of 60s :P ). But some people want to keep their pants shirts on :D That's why I always stick to Firefox 3.

Firefox 3. Way to go baby!

agree with it and read their copy right as well and dont be shocked, can not remember correct phrase but it was like “anything you brows or upload anywhere by you own by google”

correct me if i m wrong…

forget to say Firefox is the best…

at first I'd really ask the question to all of you. "How can you be sure, with which product are you more safer?"

atleast 'I' am not sure with any product that deals with internet. not even with the Firefox you all say it's the best. I dont say like it. no browser is best for me

I personally don't believe on the the statement that only FIREFOX takes care of your privacy.

the thing "google tracks your activities" is not only google. I believe every browser tracks it. and that is not about your privacy but for their next development purposes.

the thing to be noticed is not the tracks of your activities but the thing what to be noticed is that "if they share your data to third parties or not." this is really what you need to be concerned with.


#14

^Thanks for making things clear. Companies like Google can't play easily with one's privacy. Well i've a question from all of you that how a third party treats our browser being used. Means is there any flaw or etc to view sites over net. When some website tries to save cookies and else things. Which browser they can easily take info about pc? or it doesn't depend on any browser at all? Make clear these things for me. Thanks in advance

I am sure Firefox and IE6 does NOT upload user’s usage/browsing to their companies websites. Only Google’s Chrome it for sure.

I repeat, Firefox does NOT upload user’s usage. Firefox is an open-source and anyone can inspect their code and also compile it for himself. But after a crash, Firefox ask by an explicit permission by user to allow Firefox to upload the reason of crash to Mozilla to track and correct bugs. But user has full rights to cancel it (with clear Cancel button).

Safari, Chrome, and upcoming IE8, has private-mode browsing (also known as porn-mode). In this mode, nothing is saved on local computer too. All cache, internet history, cookies are deleted when you close the browser window. Yet of Firefox 3, it doesn’t have private-mode.

Chrome’s uploading of usage of user’s browsing is kind of unique in top-line browsers. Google use it against you. To properly know what you are doing they can fine-tune ads for you. When you search in Google, they can “suggest you with better results”. They can display items that “suites you”. It means they know whether a person like hockey, cricket or football, and filter things accordingly.

Now if anyone thinks that Chrome’s usage uploading is good for you or not, it’s all up to the person’s taste and choice (I had already gave example of privacy in my previous post ;) )

^thank you :)

I talked not specifically about END-USER-PRIVACY.

BTW you use internet regularly so you can know about you, beyond a browser, how much secure surfing you do. not talking about only with a browser.

if one is so conscious about a privacy thing, then he must trust one like your FireFox if wants to STAY IN. because if he doesn't trust. then he will just stop using internet. he cant compromise with his privacy.

I hope you got what I m talking about. you have to trust some one to be satisfied that you are using a good one.

any ways. InPrivate Mode in the browser you talked about is something else. this is limited to the Users of that Machine. developers still can have information fetched from you to their servers.

and the reason you told about "why chrome tracks?" a nice one. but still this is for your own use. they tell in their T&Cs they dont use it with other parties. but also this is some thing else. we are not talking about reasons.

I just said I cant believe if some says their product is safer. I dont put my ears on that thing. so I dont think there is any need to be offensive on behalf of the FireFox. I put my opinion about any of the product.

and now on the side of your kind of SE. I really want to ask you. did you EVER read the core code of FF, yourself?

That’s off-topic but no, I didn’t read the whole source code of Firefox because it’s huge and will consume lots of time. But yes, I did read some parts of code that interests me.


#18

@wampyr Now sir please can you tell me in detail how Google is collecting privacy info of End-users? Where does that happen?

Exactly not off-topic. that was to confirm how much you are sure about the FireFox. and I see how much you are sure about that.

any ways if you have so interest reading codes. then the project behind Chrome is also open source you can also enjoy that.
