Apart from the fact that it's a lot faster, makes MUCH better use of computer resources and is more stable?

I use FF also but that's because I'm a web developer and need certain extensions, if your a mainstream user Chrome is obviously the best choice.

Only idiot will install this hack. Who cares what browser do use your users, while they YOUR users. If I ever see such messages on site I prefer to find another one.

Most useless addon I ever seen!

How many individuals who are complaing about privacy have a Facebook or MySpace account? How many of those same individuals use Twitter? Complaining about privacy with Google and then turning around and modifying your MySpace page is the ultimate in irony.

I have to say I'm amazed at the negativity in this thread on this modification. First of all it is a modification that you can choose to install if you feel that you need it, just like any other modification on this site or any other that you visit.

Some people do bury their sites to make them private for a variety of reasons from the search engines and that choice is theirs not ours. If they feel that the chrome browser may be violating that, then they can install it.

Those of us that don't feel that way about the chrome browser and don't want to install this mod are not being strong armed into using it so I'd say don't rag on the coder that made the mod or those that do want to use it.

I really don't think this is a debate or popularity poll as far as browsers go. It's just a good modification thread for those that want this sort of mod.

Good job on the mod.

Because complaining about Chrome and privacy is about as logical as complaining your license plate is out there for all to see when you're driving.

ppl dont understand many of the reasons for using this hack, yet accuse me of ignorance...
my smaller board sits behind htaccess/passwd for a reason; its not for public use, its not to be cataloged, its not to be spidered or datamined. if there is any chance that the largest dataminer in the world is using peoples browser to mine data (such a stretch?) i will block it best i can, be that by using apache itself (modrewrite, etc), vb hacks, or both.
if you are too dim to understand that, so be it.

Quite frankly i'm surprised you have the intelligence to turn on your computer. Google has quite clearly explained how to tell it what to index and what not to index. If you made your htaccess file too easy to find, that's your fault. There is no conspiracy, get over it.

i dont trust an opt out system, and what i am hearing is that it could be possible for chrome to assist google to spider content that its spiders cant access.
there is no way i will risk my users information with googles opt out, robots.txt, meta tags, or any other such thing. i certainly hope your own users arent depending upon you to safeguard their data, noob.

If your users are that bloody paranoid, they should disconnect their modem and go back to snail mail.

So... I run a website, that only exists because people visit it... and I'm supposed to enforce my views on Google's browser on them?

I'd rather my ste work badly in Chrome than not at all.

What a waste of time this mod is.
