    Given the recent revelations on firefox i have rather reluctantly decided to install and use the google chrome browser here on linux mint.Forward thinking has swayed my decision in this respect and in the long run i believe using chrome would be a logical step forward.It runs very well and ram and cpu usage is perfectly stable from what i can see.

    Currently in regard to the plugins i only have the flash and native client running.Is this the optimal usage or should other or all of the remaining plugins be enabled.?

    Thank you.:)

    I have PDF Viewer enabled also, but it's not necessary if you don't want to open PDFs in browser. Other can be disabled.

    uBlockOrigin would seem a must to me...

    Can you install Chrome on Mint if you are booting Mint with a USB stick and not installed on hard drive?

    I tried and didn't have any luck.

    Kubuntu is installed on the hard drive and I found I couldn't get flash to work on either.

    The PAPI chrome PDF plugin is in its own sandbox but I use PDF Viewer because it has a search function missing on the built in viewer. This is probably a security tradeoff that I may have to rethink since F3 gives me that search function.
