Is it safe enough to just uninstal Google Chrome?

    Hi blackhatters,

    I have been chrome user since it was relesed in beta and I have never looked back ever since. However as of recently I am getting into blackhat SEO game and I found out that google uses things they should not use to trace internet users. For example they access "safe browsing" to access sensitive via it, etc. I dont`t want to take any chances, knowing how aggressive their user tracing strategy is and just setup firefox. It is not as nice and smooth as chrome, but I`ll get used to it.

    However now I my question is if will be allright by just uninstalling chrome or I need to delete some other files manually or possibly even run some clean up tools to get rid of any tracing shit google might have setup?

    Thanks

    I uninstalled Chrome a million times. Hate it. After you uninstall it, clean it up with ccleaner. I go through the registry after that and manually uninstall everything related to Chrome as a last step.

    it is pointless. google has their scripts on almost every website on the internet. you are on logged their servers forever.

    yes between google analytics, google fonts, google plus, youtube, doubleclick and a whole bunch of other stuff, you are being tracked no matter what. i use ghostery to block just about everything, but still things like google fonts can get through.
