Google Chrome has become surveillance software

Post by johnw615 »

Review: Google Chrome has become surveillance software. It’s time to switch.

This, of course, is not news to SRWare Iron users. It is why I use SRWare Iron and not Google Chrome.

However, I would like confirmation that ALL of the Google spyware has been stripped out of SRWare Iron.

Can anyone confirm this?

More importantly, when Google changes the api (as announced) in chrome to change the ability for addins to block ads and tracking snipets, what are we going to do then? These core changes within chromium are probably something that srware won't be able to negate so we all might just have to jump ship to firefox.

I've been curious about that as well. Iron is awesome and it doesn't make my PC run hot like Chrome would if I left the browser open and minimized.
