    thanks for the links.

    For the record all those have already been fixed.

    The downloading thing is a feature that the user is free to disable.

    Ps, i don't have links but there where a lot more vulnerabilities, also fixed.

    I imagine there are going to be many more patches going forward. I still think Chrome has a lot of work to do before I make the switch.

    I really don't see how you guys can worry about their privacy approach when everything you do on the internet can be seen and stored on your ISP's servers and all your searches are more than likely already on Google's and other servers. Your email is never ever private, nor is anything else on the internet.. In a nutshell, you have no privacy anyway, why worry about a Google browser?

    I agree with Kerodo. Furthermore it is very simple: If you don't trust Google, don't use it. Privacy as some people define it on the internet is not a vulnerability but a matter of choice. Luckily there is plenty to choose from.
