I refuse to use Google as my browser because I hated it. I felt like it was designed to take over my life. Anything but Google. Even then, you end up with plenty of Google, like Google Earth and a convenient search line from your browser whether it is FireFox, or Sea Monkey. I like Google Earth and they do a wide search, but I find using Google as my browser invasive.
I just got confirmation that my instincts are correct. This came from an article in the Washington Post:
Google was once a bit player in schools, but is now a dominant force. Parents in many school districts can’t opt out of the company’s tracking.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone else who has had problems with Google. In my opinion you could be facing unpleasant consequences if you use it as your browser.
