Stasi Chrome

Postby Leff » Sat Oct 24, 2009 12:55 pm

Just noticed, that google chrome someone saves my searchrequests in shops, or maybe in google itself. When opening any website with google ads on it with google Chrome, 100% of these advertisment-windows will only offer me products I recently searched for.
At first I thought it happend just randomly, but it gets more and more obvious and kinda scary as well.

Recently I was looking for a glass cabinet for my living room and ever since then I'm being chased with special offerings from several manufacturers and online shops about 'class cabinets', I just had opened my photobucket gallery and found it sourrounded by 3, large ads, offering not less than 9 different glass cabinets, which really had nothing to do with the website itself or the tags I used for my images... Opening the same link with IE, FF, Opera, Safari gave me completely random ads again.

Must say, Microsoft, in direct comparision with Google, seems to turn into the lesser evil, more and more...

Congrats, you just described what google does and where it gets its money from.
