    I installed Iron browser, and I was under the impression that it is completely separate from Chrome, meaning it does not send anything to google. however, there is something that made me a little worried. when I click on the wrench on the top right hand corner, and click on downloads, it goes to "chrome://downloads/"

    why does it say chrome? I thought this aint chrome?

    The chrome protocol was developed by Mozilla for Firefox and Thunderbird. It, essentially, refers to files or code on your machine, such as code for an application. Code run through chrome is given advanced privileges.

    You will most likely see this protocol in both Firefox and Google Chrome. It does not mean it is necessarily associated with the Google Chrome browser. "Chrome" is used in various ways around the web, from browsers, web applications, add-ons, and themes/styling for user interfaces.

    Regardless, Google tracks everything you do regardless of whether or not you're using their browser. ;)
