Is Google Chrome spying all of us?

So, Google Chrome is here. It is fast, minimalist and nice but, without you knowing, could hide something suspicious. As a matter of fact, lately in the Internet there has been a piece of news, that if true, could change the way you look at Chrome forever. An italian blog has recently tested Chrome by using a program called SilkPerformer. During such a test a web address was typed in Chrome. At this point the program started recording a weird activity. A lot of requests were sent through the Internet, from Chrome to this address: http://clients1.google.it/complete/search. Such requests were sent without the user pressing Enter! For many people such an activity reminds the one which has to do with keyloggers! Keyloggers are malicious programs which record everything you type on your keyboard in order to save precious information about your privacy. Another thing I am curious about is this: is all this data sent through the Web in an encrypted mode or it is visible to everybody? Furthermore, it looks like Chrome sends infos about what you type to Yahoo. com and Ask.com which are two famous search engines…but nothing is sent to Live Search. This is very weird to say the least, since Live Search is owned by Microsoft and doesn’t have any commercial agreement with Google. Waiting for Google to clarify these points…sorry guys to spoil all the excitements about the new G software.
YES, GOOGLE IS SPYING EVERYONE ! That’s how they have a stock priced $500 on NYSE ! They spy everyone and they want to totally spy everyone through their dumb browser which sends everything you do to them. I guess Google is even worst than Microsoft.

Prey is a lightweight application that will help you track and find your laptop if it ever gets stolen. It works in all operating systems and not only is it Open Source but also completely free.
[ad#Google Adsense300-250]
Recover what is rightfully yours
Prey helps you locate your missing laptop by sending timed reports with a bunch of information of its whereabouts. This includes the general status of the computer, a list of running programs and active connections, fully-detailed network and wifi information, a screenshot of the running desktop and — in case your laptop has an integrated webcam — a picture of the thief.

Silent but deadly
Prey uses a remote activation system which means the program sits silently in your computer until you actually want it to run. If so, it gathers all the information and sends it to your Prey web control panel or directly to your mailbox. The thief will never know his movements are being watched.

And because there’s always hope
You may be thinking “but what’s the point of this program if the guy will probably just format the thing right away?” and you’re completely right. However, experience shows that thieves tend to look in stolen computers for valuable information, so there’s actually a chance you can catch the guy
Besides, if by using Prey you can keep alive a tiny bit of hope that you’ll recover your computer, isn’t it already worth it?
