How much do you think their marketshare would suffer if not just in their microscopic, 1000-page user agreement, UP FRONT, on their download page, and/or if every time Chrome launched, it says that they tracked everything that you the user did, and they can sell or use that information however they see fit?I don't consider Google's "spying" to be "evil" for a few reasons:
1. It's not secret. We all know that everyone is collecting data as we browse the web
Maybe people (I suspect most) would be like you, and say "who cares". But, there are others who do. Isn't one of the great things about the Internet is that it's chock-full of information? And choice? Why not inform your users, and make it possible for them make an informed choice (like you did)?
