    Chrome is perfectly safe. If you really don't want google to know your search history, change to a different default search engine. There's really nothing better than chrome.
    You lose.

    I have no intention of deliberately installing spyware on my computer. Chrome is out of the question. Does anyone know much about Iron? My understanding is that it's very similar.

    Otherwise maybe I'll try Opera. Anyone have complaints, or particular praise, for Opera?

    Thanks for the input, unless you suggested Chrome. :steam:

    I actually have a similar level of paranoia regarding Chrome and web security in general, BMC.

    I found Opera to be perfect for me. Here's a good review from PCMag:

    WTF Google stores search history?

    Where do they put all that search information, I mean....there's a lot of googleing going around.

    And they can't keep it forever.

    It never crossed my mind that google stores that shit, although I do not believe in online privacy.

    I just switched to Chrome from Firefox, though the thought of Google storing my searches makes me feel uneasy...but it is also helpful to categorize common searches...helps making finding things on the big, wide web that much easier, not to mention provide a glimpse of world trends and paradigm shifts.

    Then again, Google has me by the proverbial balls...I use GMail, GChat, Reader, Calendar, and Google Documents religiously. Now use Chrome, and I like it so far (it's easier on my RAM than FF).

    I have the Firefox 4 Beta, and I like the changes thus far. Doesn't feel as bloated as Firefox 3.x. They moved the tabs above the navigation bar, which I prefer (although they are not at the very top of the screen). It's still buggy, but I feel like they finally listened to some of the complaints about FF that have cropped up in the past two years or so.

    Iron looks like a good browser. All the benefits of Chrome, without giving google access to any information.

    Google Chrome is not bad, it's light and fast. Somewhat buggy though.
