Why you should think twice about using Google Chrome

Quote:Chrome topped the list with 76 vulnerabilities, beating the 60 of Apple's Safari browser. Bit9 CTO Harry Sverdlove indicated that since Chrome is still relatively new, security researchers are placing more scrutiny on the software, which could potentially increase the vulnerability number. Sverdlove and his group reportedly analyzed 3,268 reported vulnerabilities -- ranging from buffer-overflow to cross-site scripting -- to create the list.

I know many are a fan of the new Google Chrome browser but realistically it's still very new and buggy. Now you also should be very concerned about vulnerabilities too.

I was using Chrome, but I didn't like it so I went back to Firefox.
Someone with no history is nothing but suspicious.

It has nothing to do with "bugs" they are security issues. And is the number 1 reason why I have stayed with Firefox. And the rumors that google is harvesting your online experience.

Websites that are malacious can inject things into your computer and some webbrowser have security features to prevent this. This is only an example of a security flaw that google chrome could have. I'm no expert in that area so i cant say much.

Google chrome has huge privacy issues, they see EVERY key you even type in the search bar, even if you don't send it.

Use this: http://www.srware.net/en/software_srware_iron.php

Doesn't log every key =) same as Google Chrome except without alot more privacy issues.

Yikes, that's pretty bad. I'm on Chrome right now actually (brothers computer).. I should download Opera like I've done on my main CPU. I do not like Firefox as much anymore, it seems bulky and slow to me.
