I also have no idea what benefits an unremovable "just one click to check if someone visited pornhub" function may have... :lol:

Wow, Google. That's a real dick move on their part. I'm honestly glad I've always stuck with Firefox, though it is far from being the perfect browser. I'd love to explore other browsers, but I don't want to give up my browser extensions.

I am curious though, isn't Google Chrome mostly open-source, available as "Chromium"? If so, why not just go back into the code and revert the changes yourself. You would have to switch to Chromium though, and I'm not sure what the difference is between Google Chrome and Chromium... maybe the DRM stuff needed to play streaming media from places like Netflix?
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It works on my machine...

well, Chrome is based on Chromium but google added a whole lot of proprietary stuff.
I used Chromium for a while when my OS was so messed up that regular Chrome did not work anymore....it was a pretty annoying crashfest, almost as bad as with Chrome Canary... :? also lots of features are missing, IIRC it can't even play .mp4 and .mp3

Well that's a bummer. That really makes Chromium fairly useless as a modern browser. I guess there's really not much you can do :?
