Google Chrome: Surveillance Software
An article in the Washington Post claims that “Google Chrome Has Become Surveillance Software.”
The author of the article ran experiments to see how much of his online activity was being spied on, collected, and stored by Google. He compared Google’s Chrome browser to Mozilla’s Firefox. Here’s what he found…

“My tests of Chrome versus Firefox unearthed a personal data caper of absurd proportions. In a week of web surfing on my desktop, I discovered 11,189 requests for tracker “cookies” that Chrome would have ushered right onto my computer, but were automatically blocked by Firefox. These little files are the hooks that data firms, including Google itself, use to follow what websites you visit so they can build profiles of your interests, income and personality.”
“Chrome is even sneakier on your phone. If you use Android, Chrome sends Google your location every time you conduct a search.”
