Default Google Chrome , does anyone use it?

Does anyone here use it?

How does it effect this website?

How much personal data does it collect? More than regular Google?

I use Chrome all the time. It just works better on my computer; faster, and fewer hangups. Works great with the QB. Have no idea how much personal data is collected, though.

I have used Chrome and gmail for years. No spam in the email. You can turn off data collecting in Chrome but the sites you visit collect your data and sell it right back to all the companies anyway. If you are online you are in a database, no use worrying about it now.

Use Chrome all the time. I have IE and Mozilla Firefox, but use Chrome 99.9% of the time. It works great with this website. I am sure it collects data, but no more or no less than other browsers (I would think). Having said that, there are lesser known browsers that say they don't collect data.... haven't tried any of them.

I switched to Chrome from Internet Explorer about 5 days ago. IE kept getting bogged down, freezing up, slower and slower, and Craftsy had been telling me for a long time that they did not support IE9. Even after being assured by someone on here that they switched to Chrome and had no problems, I still drug my feet until I couldn't tolerate the freeze-ups anymore. Compared to IE9, Chrome flies! As far as collecting information, I figure the minute I'm online, there is no hiding. I don't give out my birthdate or my grandmother's name, etc., choose the BD you want, just make sure it isn't the day and year you signed up. I still am finding out something different each day about how to use Chrome. As far as how it affects this website, you will have to sign in again with your password, then tell the site to keep you signed in, but be amazed at how fast your viewing goes.
