Internet & Networking It might be common, but that doesn't mean I'm not allowed to wail against it - especially since I was not familiar with this particular case. As it turns out, several of Adobe products' download pages have opt-out checkboxes to also install Google Chrome. This was spyware-like behaviour when Apple did it with Safari and the iPhone Configuration Utility, and it is still spyware-like behaviour when Adobe and Google do it with Chrome.

Google are simply not interested in competing based on promoting an open and fair Internet.

I can't see the relation between "an open and fair Internet" and the fact that you can get Chrome bundled with other programs. It would be different if your browser were uninstalled and replaced by Chrome.
