BrowserUk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Is anyone else entirely suspicious of the content of the traffic generated by the Win32 Chrome installer?
The links posted in this thread have led me to see that others have deep reservations about this thing (which is enough justification for me to have posted). The talk of "open source" made me think it might be okay, but the installer doesn't seem to be open source, so they could be gathering whatever info they like at install time.
Suffice it to say, I have not allowed (and have no intention of allowing) the install call home. And given the EULA, I won't be building from source either.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
