Google Chrome Privacy Issues
I have recently switched from using internet explorer to Google Chrome. This new browser seems to be a cleaner, newer, and smoother browser overall. But there have been some recent concerns about Google using the browser to gather personal information about it's users (such as information filled out in forms and on websites you visit) and giving that information to advertisers. There lies the potential, with this information, for google to provide advertisements to people based on what they like. For example, if you prefer Canon over Nikon, you may find yourself seeing more Canon ads than Nikon ones. This is a very interesting and creepy thought. It is unsure whether this is a legitimate threat or not, but it is something to keep in mind as you surf the net in Google Chrome.
