Wonder how many of these people are against using facebook because of privacy. .

I highly recommend it.
And if you are concerned about search privacy - use www.startpage.com...

i have a question :
what evidence does any one have for this claim of " self- destruct code " transmitted ??????
because i see " cascade failure " - ie one app is reliant on data from another app - nd when app one fails - app two is doomed
that is poor management - not a " self destruct code "
each app in the ` chain ` should be able to function as a stand alone component - users should accept that each " stand alone " app - is going to offer only a fraction of what the integrated app cloud can deliver - but each should be able to do something by iteslf

I'm not quite ready to surf the Internet via telnet just yet (except for geeky fun) but I would never have touched Chrome...
I even worry about Firefox (the bastard child of Netscape) but with so much hardware watching us on Internet backbones I'm not sure there is any way out short of borrowing somebody Else's network connection from a long ways out. You are now bagged tagged and databased. And hardly a person cares as long as they get their Internet fix. Lol, damn cattle...edit on 11-12-2012 by Apollumi because: (no reason given)

ps thanks for the tips, I'll have to see if there is a thread out there with more information on how to better tune up Chrome.
