    Apparently I heard Chromium is the non-tracking version of Google Chrome. So in other words, unlike Google Chrome, Chromium does NOT track all of the pages you've visited. So is Chromium really the non-tracking version of Google Chrome? Is it true that Google Chromium tracks all of the pages you visit, and then send that info back to Google?

    In the configuration I use it, the answer is no (I didn't try to see if any kind of tracking happens with the default settings, but I have some doubts about it).

    If you are interested about Chrome/Chromium privacy settings, you can read this: http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/privacy/whitepaper.html
