Video demonstration

Microsoft is going on the offensive against Google, accusing the search giant of creating a browser that does not respect user privacy. The company posted a video, embedded below, on TechNet Edge with the following description: "Watch a demo on how Google Chrome collects every keystroke you make and how Internet Explorer 8 keeps your information private through two address bars and In Private browsing."

Thats why I use Iron Browser instead.

I don't understand why people like IE when windows rams this down every windows throats and thank you sir may i have another ,i would delete it but i know why that's not a good idea. Their cutting deals with government intelligence agency's to spy and that's why windows comes with IE.

Pete LePage needs a taste of his own medicine ,i think we should start off about him not coming out the closet and how he likes to cross dress in his wifes lingerie in front of mirrors.

See how he likes that...

I use Iron Browser, because Chrome has been known to be open source spy-ware....

The switch for both iron and Chrome is to add --incognito after the target in the shortcut to the application.

Yep ,i didn't know they had a new chrome browser based on chrome source code ,i'm going to try this out for sure.

But...when you install Chrome you are asked if you want Chrome to automatically send usage statistic reports to google.

If it installs spyware the what kind of spyware is it?

Adblocker works good ,it also stops adds from being active/clickable so if your mouse goes near it you wont get automatically redirected. No Noscript from what i know , they've just started in the add'ons game.

you can't go wrong with sandboxie

Iron is the second browser I've run across in the past few weeks that's also based on Chromium. Comodo Dragon is another browser based on Chromium.

I run both Google Chrome and Chromium on my Linux system. Both are 64-bit browsers and both are SCREAMING fast! (y)

Peace...

Microsoft v Google!!!!!!


Hmmm - what I prefer about Microsoft is how they seem more accountable than Google. You see their Buildings in Seatle, these are the People who work for them, Mr Gates is something of a Personality - that sort of thing. Google? Hmmm - where are they based, has anyone ever seen it, who works for them - and does the owner have the same public Persona as the Microsoft Boss? No it, they, them and he doesn't - which is why I find some of this Collation Stuff a bit disturbing. And while they do this who is looking back at them to see if they are looking back at you?

Are the Watchers being watched?

Only once have I ever seen anyone from Google - and they drove down our High Street in some non-descript Vehicle with a Camera on the Roof - while the Driver had a slightly furtive air about him.

You've got a Gripe with Mr Gates you can write him - even by Post - can you do the same with Google?

Although I think they might implode on their own success. I've noticed in the last Year or so how they aren't as reliable a Search Engine now as they might have been. Also, if they become too voracious in the end the only Stuff you'll be able to find on Google will be Google - and thus the much vaunted Internet grinds to a halt!
