Google finally unveiled Chrome, the beta edition of its web browser. Long ago, Google has predicted – ‘The browser is the platform’, keeping it in mind, it released Gogle Gears, now the Chrome. The tab button stikingly resembeles like he Yahoo toolbar, did anyone note that?? Of course, the Yahoo toolbar adds the tab functionality to older IE editions. Cold this be the next big application that will spy on people from now? I remember writing a link on how Google has exploited privacy and security of users..Wow…Is this the biggest spyware we have ever seen?? A note to Paranoids – I cant say for gurantee that Google Chrome is the official spying tool released by Google, but given its past and privacy pundits worried over Google tracking its users habits, trends etc…but in that case, I can safely say – Orkut is the biggest spyware. Enter Orkut, and you will find all fizzy stuff ranging from click trackers, url trackers, content crawlers, etc.
I suggest – take a break..Stay away from the web for some time, maintain a random click pattern that will make Google;s life difficult. ;) Install this wonderful tool, Tor
Q. What is Tor?
A. Tor is a software project that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security. Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.
Good luck. However, I am amazed how well this wannabe Google Spyware has found its way in news, media, blogs..did this thing really needed so much attention?? Mozilla’s doing a fine job against Microsoft, the browser war isent the same one it was in 1997…Joke..! Like Apple iPhone, Google Chrome has lived its hype, and I think its one of the most successful webmedia marketting campaign we have seen recently., after the dramatic Apple iPhone..
2 years ago, I remember downloading an IE based slim browser, it was called Browzar. The site’s still alive, except that it didnt get a grand attention Chrome’s getting.. I think it hasent come out of its beta stage even after 2 years later I downloaded it. Browzar claims to be a paranoid web surfers friend..but as its based on IE, I wont assume anything..Wow, the date matches exactly…Take a look @ this article I had written lonng time back describing Browzar.;)
Psst..want to see Chrome crashing?? Try this link… ;)
