There are many facts about Google Chrome but I have listed the top 10 interesting facts which are following.
Registry: GoogleUpdate.exe wants to mess with the Windows Registry, Spy bot stopped that. I download legit new applications frequently but registry changes are rarely the case. Why does Google Update have to mess with my Registry? There seems not even a way to opt out of Google Update. I barred it from accessing the web via my Zone Alarm firewall.
Passwords: I was just like “wow” when Google Chrome “imported” my passwords from Fire fox. Did I miss the “opt out” option again? Good to know that Google builds actual “password import” utilities.
Bookmarks: I do not remember allowing Google Chrome to take my Fire fox bookmarks either. I want to keep my FF bookmarks to myself, it’s none of Google Chrome’s business.
Most viewed: Great, now my employers can easily check out that I was mostly on arrestbush.org, sexygals.com and Digg.com instead of working. I strongly advise you to use incognito mode in such cases.
EULA: Is this really a browser user agreement or is this just adopted from other “services”? Did you actually read it? I’m not a lawyer, but some passages sound crazy: It seems Google Chrome is entitled to share data with third parties working with Google and revoke your rights to use this “service” among other weird legalese.
Updates every 25h: Am I really unable to opt out the daily (25h) updates? I do not even update Fire fox before I decide to do so. I just recently switched from FF 1.5 to FF 2. So now Google wants me to update every single day? I want to know beforehand why I should update and what changes have been implemented and then I decide whether I update. You can’t scare me into submission with bad ware sites etc. Conspiracy theory: Now we already know that Google does not care that much about privacy here (in fact even Microsoft is ridiculing them). In fact Google chief engineer Matt Cutts (“Head of Webspam”) cites a NYT article to let you know what Google engineers think about users caring for their privacy, they are a bunch of “conspiracy theorists”.
Default language: Google decides for me which language I should use. As I’m based in Germany I was forced upon the German version although I chose the default one (presumably English) and downloaded Google Chrome with my English language Fire fox. Until now I did not find an option to change that. Safari for Windows: Google Chrome is based on the same engine as Safari, which was the buggiest and most insecure browser of all time from day one. Matt Cutts already announced that the daily update is for fixing security holes, so it seems they expect plenty of them. How about not building in such holes in the first place? Now many of you will probably think that “I’m wearing a tinfoil hat” as they say about paranoid people. To be honest I use at least a dozen of Google’s services in spite of their shortcomings.
Google search daily a hundred times.
Gmail also my mails are stored in the US and can be read by basically more or less 50 different law enforcement agencies
Google Analytics although I’m an evil SEO
Google Docs for writing blog posts although basically has the copyright for everything you write there
Software: The largest difference between an Apple phone and a Samsung phone is software. All Apple products run its own operating system called the iOS. The new iPhone 5S or 6 will be getting a fresh version to the software called the iOS 7 since the current version is iOS 6. Samsung produces most of its high-end phones with Google Android out of the box. The new Galaxy S phone is expected to run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The existing version of the phone features Android 4.1 Jelly Bean after a recent upgrade from its original Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
Display Screen: It is now almost sure that the new Samsung Galaxy S will come out with a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED FullHD resolution screen. The company has showcased its innovative FHD sAMOLED panel at CES 2013. This display is meant as a rival to the LCD FullHD screens from companies like Sharp, LG and others. So, the S4 will be the first handset to roll out with a 1080p sAMOLED screen. It will thus be an intense competitor to the new line of FullHD phones that all have LCD screens
Nothing is known about the display of the new iPhone. The current iPhone has a really larger ever- Phone display screen. With a 4-inch display, Apple has broken its tradition of a typical 3.5-inch display and added a large one with a goal to stay competitive to the then new line of Android phones. But, things have entirely changed and now the Android market is flourished with lots of phablets, i.e. phones with 5+inch displays. So, can we expect a 5-inch iPhone time? No idea; let us wait.
Processor: The Galaxy S4 is expected to come with an Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) chip, which Samsung has recently unveiled. It will be coming inside the brand new ARM Cortex-A15 processor that may likely offer a clocking speed of around 2GHz. To support the advanced processor, the device will have 2GB RAM and a superbly powerful graphical processor. The new iPhone is to mount a new A7 or A6X chipset with the capability for taking up large-scale tasks and processing. It may also get 2GB RAM. It is better to say that Apple is really forced to include great specs to the device with a goal to lead a fight against the new Android phones.
Camera: Well, an advanced rear camera can be certainly expected on the S4. Two of its last forerunners – the S2 and S3 – have the same 8MP rear cameras, but the new trend in market is 13MP or higher cameras. So there is no reason to doubt that Samsung wouldn’t add a heavy camera on its new Galaxy S4. So is the case with the new iPhone. The Apple phone is also said to emerge out with a 13MP camera. The current iPhone also has an 8MP camera like its two last predecessors.
Of course, Apple and Samsung will again be taking on in the mobile market this year, despite of many highly powerful handsets from other firms. People have a special craze towards the new Apple smartphone and Galaxy S line. Last year, the victory went to Samsung. Its Galaxy S3 could outdo the iPhone 5 in many aspects of the sales in many regions.
