Google (And Who Knows Who Else) Is Listening to Your Via Chrome

Chrome Bugs Let Sites Listen to Your Private Conversations Google’s engineers, who’ve proven themselves to be just as talented as I imagined, were able to identify the problem and fix it in less than 2 weeks from my initial report.
I was ecstatic. The system works. But then time passed, and the fix didn’t make it to users’ desktops. A month and a half later, I asked the team why the fix wasn’t released. Their answer was that there was an ongoing discussion within the Standards group, to agree on the correct behaviour - “Nothing is decided yet.”

Your Say

So no one else here uses Chrome either? What kind of people do use Chrome? (I took a look at it when it was first issued, and it seemed totally useless from my perspective.)

I use Chrome and use it exclusively now. And Chrome holds more than 50% of the browser market currently. Chrome is what is really happening. If your machine can run it, run it. You'll see.
