You need to modify your link as all it does is take you to the search function, not display any results if that was your aim.

There is a safe way to browse and not worry about these security warnings.

While I'm on this OS, I don't think I have anything to fear even without any Anti Virus protection. :)

Chrome Sets Browser Security Standard, Says Expert

http://www.pcworld.com/article/186486/chrome_sets_browser_security_standard_says_expert.html

Have a look at Some Observations on Rootkits:

Quote
Run 64-bit Windows
for the time being, it appears that currently, users running 64 bit Windows are less likely to be compromised by rootkits. While the threat landscape is constantly evolving, for now you can breathe a lot easier if you're running 64-bit Windows. If you have a choice, go with 64-bit.
I won't be switching to Chrome. 8)

Can you elaborate on how relates to Chrome specifically?

that was my reaction too  ;) Yokenny has the ability to link unrelated things very often so don't worry. The "thinking" here is because he's running a 64 bit version of Windows and IE8 he feels safe enough against rootkit not to have to use Chrome and its sandboxing abilities. Doesn't make any sense but that's Yokenny... :D

I think the main issue with Chrome is still the privacy issue - collecting client server data, say, with localisation strategies and other personalization, or through google diagnose, an so on.

So far anyway.

Rootkits are another matter though. deserving of greater attention, so it seems from recent developments.

Hi Polonus,

I'm rerouted to https://www.opwoco.de/ which shouldn't be an issue but I cannot find "silentio" there...

I like to keep things simple.

I do not need Chrome.

Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
