    May I ask why you made a new topic when there is already a decent one going?

    It's also in another section of the board and 11 pages deep which could be hard for some to catch up on or just don't want to.

    I'll say this much though, totally not interested. I don't like the idea that it learns your practices and saves them for later to learn how to adapt your way you browse. My issue with that is googles big mantra in the past of collecting quietly all your information and browsing habits and then using them for their own needs whatever that may be. Also as seen with their love affair with the chinese government, not too fond of the fact they feel find locking out and censoring anything they feel they need to. Big browser...? Big brother. No thanks!

    I'm fine with Firefox. I don't think I have a reason to switch?

    i dont like it. For some reason I can scroll up using my touchpad; only down. I need to use my usb mouse which I dont usually use. It always staring up at different sizes. Not to mention every time you open anew tab It shows you your most visited sites. What if its a pron site? You can't edit anything in that browser. Ill stick with firefox until it finishes.

    Meh, it's just a beta. Plus Google doesn't really care about your privacy, they care about advertising revenue and recording your surfing habits help boost that.

    But the touchpad issue should have been fixed in the latest revision.

    What DeMoN said, and there is also incognito surfing. Use it if you do not want people to know you are surfing smutt.
