But from time to time something bothers me enough that I have to make an exception. When Google launched Chrome ten years ago, it seemed like one of those rare cases where everyone wins. In , the browser market was dominated by Microsoft, a company with an ugly history of using browser dominance to crush their competitors. Worse, Microsoft was making noises about getting into the search business. In this setting, Chrome was a beautiful solution. As a benefit, the Internet community would receive a terrific open source browser with the best development team money could download.

This is required. Right now, that trade off is okay. I logged out with do not remember me on this computer, but apparently not completely from what I just read. Both times the laptop owners were non- techies and complained I caused them to lose all their bookmarks etc. One even said I put my picture on her desktop which I finally realized was the new photo user icon. The best part about sync is that I can use any computer or even if I get a new computer, when I sign into Chrome, it will fire up exactly as I left it.
My bookmarks, history, theme, and all my add ons are there. I should be able to choose what data goes through Google when Inuse their email, Docs, Drive and other products — and what does not. I used to be able to do that. Hardly an example of informed consent. Google is being less than transparent about a change that has real effects on user privacy and consent.
Yes absolutely true! Perhaps this is what inspired Google to do the Chrome default boondoggle. As a rule of thumb I only use Google products for commercially oriented things and do everything else elsewhere. Perhaps the most frustrating thing is to abandon Google on mobile- good bye Andriod , you have become even more mendacious and grasping than site!
You can, by not using the free service you agreed to use when you agreed to their TOS. Excellent comment. So just because you like the functionality, everyone else should like it too?
You like it, you accept the consequences. Someone else may not like it but they now get the consequences shoved up their rear ends, without the pants being removed first at that too. Dino Rodriguez There are always useful idiots.
Big companies and governments rely on sheeple like you to get away with crap like this! Privacy should always be the default. I completely respect the ease of use you find from using Google products and I do think that if you think giving out your data is a good method of payment then you should do it. How am I wrong about Google supplying my name, address and search history to a bank or insurance company?
A cheapass VPN still needs to connect to somewhere and therefore you need to trust whoever you are paying to connect to. Can you cite where someone was refused insurance or a job or a loan based on their internet search history? Why anyone would willingly use google products is perplexing. Unless you like everything you search for and view to be archived and used against you for eternity.
How often were telegrams used against those that used to send plain text messages nationally and internationally. All that is needed is legislation at the federal level that ensures companies cannot tie names to search histories and then give out this info to the highest bidder. I think this is a level of unwarranted paranoia. Why would anyone care about your cat videos? A paranoid individual is defined as one who believes that others are out to get them.
Most of the time incorrectly, but not all the time, as sometimes they are correct. Google does not care about you, really you, They are interested in personas not actual persons — behaviour, patterns around those so they can sell ads in a more relevant way.
They give you convenience for data. Traffic information in maps for targeting data. I would be actually very worried if Google was supplying names and their search histories to private companies for a fee. There ought to be a law against such a practise and there probably already is. Are we talking about Google the same company that lets users set location services OFF on Android but still tracks you even if you remove your SIM card?
I was anticipating this, and was pretty pissed off about it too. I created a new account just for browser login. Now I toggle user profile depending on what I am using the browser for. Glad to see other people are also as miffed about it as I am. Another question: I use two profiles one for private and one for work —profile-directory cmd line switch , in the work profile I see the sync menu you are talking about, but I am not signed in in google there. I wonder why…. I always know in the end, I will be molested by the billionaire.
It makes things easier. I like it. But why would Google bother doing that, when us grumps are rare and millions are eager to self-identify? What do you think about the solution to use the built in Guest account mode? Tangential question, any recommendations for a tool similar to LittleSnitch but with a little sniffer which alerts if ones personal data is flowing in packets? Does this mean you will start using Mozilla Firefox as a browser?
Or does this browser also have privacy issues? For me, I use different browsers or devices for different purposes. The killing of off Inbox makes me fee the same feelings you express, but then I have to re-calibrate to the quote above, I knew this. Same thing back when they killed off Reader. So yeah. I would be carful with TOR. Some first nodes will wait an hour and half then start testing your Ip for security vulnerabilities. I had to go to incognito mode to stop that behaviour.
I think i will switch to back to Firefox soon. The user tracking implications of this are truly scary.
This seems to be yet another blatant attempt by liberal tech companies to eliminate what little anonymity and privacy the user still has on the Internet or in society. Issues such as identity confirmation, security, and financial fraud appear to be a pretext for this despicable behavior. You do realize that conservatives are in this as well, yes?
No, probably not with that filter of yours. No, you are ignorant. Apple comes out with support for homosexual marriage. Google works with the Chinese and runs a cult-like work environment extremely hostile to conservatives. Remember the leak of the meeting the day after the election? Then, look at Google refusing to run ads for various companies they dislikes politically — crisis pregnancy and guns are a few that come to mind.
site demonitizes blogs and companies that the SPLC tells them are bad. Remember the old saw that ran as follows. Will success spoil Rock Hunter? So far as I know, that question remains unanswered. Whatever happened to Rock? Not only will or might success spoil Google, it obviously has.
Whatever happened to their former masthead doggerel that ran as follows. Do No Harm. Seems to me that data furnished to any of these Google types operations was furnished for the sole purpose of facilitating my use of services they offered, said data not offered them as something they might transfer, sell or barter without, in each and every instance, specific authorization from me.
What say the information mangers to this?
Privacy is an Illusion. Somewhere in some way, someone is watching. And recording. And analyzing. And waiting. Interestingly, it does not matter whether you are online or not. The new behavior makes perfect sense for all but the delusionally paranoid individual, who thinks Google gives enough shit about their boring lives, porn history, or sexual fetishes.
Being judgmental of others while possessing very low intelligence works great for you, please continue being an ass clown. But tomorrow is another day. What happens when Google all of a sudden decides it wants to know exactly what I am up to. Well, they will open their database and it will all be there for the taking.
However, planning my life around such an event is just bizarre. And Goolag will profit by selling it to them. I wish everyone would understand developers are NOT making these decisions on their own. In any case the answer is digital revenue, aka money. Why else??? We are all adults here right? There never is another answer. I think only a naive fool would use anything from Google. As it seems to have escaped many: Google did more evil than that, far more — also in the browser context.
What I DO care about though is justice and fairness. Digest that. That, however, is not the case anymore. Oh, and Google did something more: They are pushing hard to establish their quic protocol. In case you are interested: NO, quic is not secure as some studies show. But then why would Google want you to actually be secure as opposed to security blabla? What we witness here is the slow cooking the frog.
When Google started it was fresh pleasant water. This was long time ago. Now they turned the heat on again a notch. Very few will jump out. What the author makes clear in this well argumented post is that this is a big move from Google.
Obviously, we are reaching the critical point. There is less and less reason to show restraint. The, later, came Chrome. You can not being to imagine today the uses they will find for your data 10 years from now.
Leave No Trace or suffer the consequences. In a related and equally appalling note, the Google Home assistant device their answer to Alexa will not function unless you grant Goggle access to your browsing history on your phone. They know who you are from your IP address anyway, your computer has to tell them which machine is talking to them, at that point, the machine is known.
Given you were the only one able to log into the machine, you are known. To even post a comment here… known. If you went through another browser , no problem. I have not used my Google account since then. As a software engineer experienced with network programming I knew right then that they create a digital fingerprint of every user. So be careful what you search for…..
Google is big brother. But I want to sign in to chrome for Sync as my personal account, but be logged on to Google and all its stuff with my business account. They are not the same thing at all. Currently my solution is to leave Chrome signed out all the time on all devices, and selectively sign in for various purposes on Opera, Vivaldi, Firefox or Blisk I mean, nobody actually uses Safari, right? Bloody Hell! I avoid Google like the the plague!
Because I value my privacy and also refuse to be a data gathering bot for them. How is that useful for an ad? A company that does such deeds is not worthy of any trust regardless of how good their products seem to be.
As a user, you are the product, not the customer. Comments and or questions are not included in the above, short list of operator wants. Technology is being dominated by few giant corporations like google, facebook, apple etc.
This latest update by chrome, appears to be in line with the tightening of the noose around privacy and personal freedom online. Here I would like to add another twist to the line of the ongoing so called progress.. I will emphasise specifically the importance that such free services are placing on peoples lives these days, and this point begs another question — what if in the future these services become embedded with the person, e.
Sure, you may think it is far fetched, but already many western countries are asking people to include their social media profiles on visa or job applications. I guess people loose their sensitivity just like a frog doesnt feel the water getting hot until its too late. Does it have my browsing activity including banks etc before I close Chrome and erase cookies, browsing history and so on?
People who stand up against privacy issues tend to come under attack from those with vested interests.
Pay no attention to them; the frog should always jump out as soon as they feel the water heating up. I left Chrome years ago. This is a first time I even heard of Chrome login. So another useless feature with goal of data slurping? It seems to me that many comments on this page come from very tech savvy people who are well versed in Googles capabilities and strategies.
But what about the millions who are not so savvy? Why would people have to find out about this change from a blog and not Google themselves?
Subsequent Google Doodles were designed by an outside contractor, until Larry and Sergey asked then- intern Dennis Hwang to design a logo for Bastille Day in From that point onward, Doodles have been organized and created by a team of employees termed "Doodlers". Its first on April 1, was Google MentalPlex which allegedly featured the use of mental power to search the web. Employees are split into six hierarchies based on experience and can range "from entry-level data center workers at level one to managers and experienced engineers at level six.
Google's headquarters in Mountain View , California is referred to as "the Googleplex ", a play on words on the number googolplex and the headquarters itself being a complex of buildings. Internationally, Google has over 78 offices in more than 50 countries.
The office was designed and built specially for Google, and houses its largest advertising sales team, which has been instrumental in securing large partnerships.
