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.

Chrome is not bundled with anything. He's pulling things out of his ass. See for yourself.

Third parties might distribute Chrome with other shit, but that's what they do, and have been doing for ages (those "essential" bundles from obscure sites) with everything.
