Well, its not for sure what type of information google is gathering about its users who are using their browsers. None the less if you are just as paranoid as me but still like to use chrome then you should really check out: http://www.comodo.com/home/browsers-toolbars/browser.php Its called Comodo Dragon Note: I am no way affiliated, nor am I working for this company. I found some users talking about them on another forum, tried it myself, and it works exactly like chrome without the bad. You can even install the the chrome plugins etc.. Its just like chrome but with 2x more security and of course, your information is not being sent to google. Anyway, this is just for those who are looking for an alternative to G chrome. Best Regards.
