    Well I unistalled it but it is still trying to access the web for an 'update' (so my firewall tells me).

      I uninstalled it as well. Google seems to think it should be installed in my User Directory instead of Program Files. Applications do not belong in data directories.

          Like Flock, Camino, Opera, IE6/7/8 and FireFox 1.5, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1, I will keep it installed for a while.

            I'm actually using it with Firefox, to use stuff like AdSense, Gmail, and other heavy sites.

            I just wish I could save a group of tabs as files, so I could double click it and open a new window with those tabs. I could save Gmail/AdWords/AdSense/Analytics in one file, all stuff related to another site on another file, etc.

            About privacy, Google already has my email, so whatever.

            I kinda like the way I can separate windows with groups of tabs. Better memory management (or so they say) makes me feel better too. Firefox chokes with a couple heavy sites on a vista 64/4gb ram/Q6600 cpu.

              Yes, kinda strange why they decided to put it there. Probably to get around restrictions and be able to update the app without your knowledge. If it's in Program Files it can only be written to if you logged in as an admin.

              I haven't uninstalled it, but I haven't used it since taking it for a spin the first day.

                Chrome is nice for those websites you have always open, as it's easy to move them around, create new windows and organize tabs, and keep them around using less memory then firefox.

                  I haven't tried Chrome yet but I was looking around on Google at their open source projects, like Gears etc. I don't think Chrome is intended as a Firefox killer. The Mozilla developers don't seem concerned. Google makes money by tracking our surfing habits and Firefox allows add-ons that block that; so Chrome will probably increase trackability for Google without actually snuffing Firefox, however Chrome is the workhorse for the next internet/computer experience.

                  The money is in the deals with hardware manufacturers like Panasonic when they come out with their new internet TV's. In the future, the overall internet plan is to have inter-operability between internet server based programs as if they were running on our desktops, and Google Gears is leading the way with MS Silverlight not far behind. The idea is to allow people to have an internet TV terminal with a browser instead having a computer with an OS. Imagine having the vBulletin paste something into Google mail without using your windows clipboard. They've already figured out a lot of the security obstacles, so that they can make things like this possible. It will probably work whether you're using Firefox, I/E, Chrome, or Opera, but I wonder if it will be restrictive like AOL was.

                    They are way behind then. I can already do this on the Opera Browser for the Wii.

                      Err, who wrote that article? Yikes
                      The ongoing internet browser war welcomes its new contestant: famous internet giant Google just released beta version of its upcoming internet browser, which is called Chrome. In the year 2006, person from Google said that they have no plans for releasing their own browser. Recent events show that this was not true. As said in 33-paged presentation, made like a comic book, Google Chrome is very different from any popular browser. It use WebKit engine (same as Safari's), and it was written from scratch to work flawlessly with complex content like JavaScript and modern
                      Well, it is Internet journalism, after all.

                          It sometimes DOES have reasons why computers are restricted to non-admin-users. So this "solution" is out of the question. And firefox works too... Just as an example.
