With Google Chrome released to beta many tech savvy web surfers, Diggers and Google fanatics are perpetuating the constant buzz about, well, something on the internet. And though Google may have again started something wonderful, there's still much to be disappointed about.
For example, some reviewers are disappointed in the difference between Firefox and Chrome. Others dislike the crashes it suffered. Though these are generally legitimate issues with browsers, they pale in comparison to what users are describing as their experience with Chrome's auto-complete function. Though not all users are disappointed.
"I wanted to order some butter," said one satisfied searcher, "you know, Blue Bonnet? Well, I typed that but for some reason the search terms turned out to be 'lube on it'. It really opened up the new realm of porn I'd been waiting for. Thanks, Google!"
There are hundreds of reports of these slips on all sorts of support forums. One distraught woman on a Christian technology solutions forum wondered if she should burn her computer after she searched for Santa's address and was directed to results for the query, "What is Satan's address?"
"They tried to tell me that satan is my mother," cried jesusmom313, "but I really think that's a misrepresentation of Freud's work."
Many have often wondered about Google's power as the keeper of immense amounts of information. This experience has only fueled that fire.
"It's such a violation of privacy," said the head of one privacy advocacy group, "Google shouldn't be allowed into our repressed memories."
Google, of course, is denying these claims.
"We're not doing anything people don't already want us to do" said a Google spokesman.
