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.

I see this as an exercise to stop aimlessly clicking the "next" & " I Agree" buttons without looking at the screen.

Have to admit... I still think vendors that do this should be called on it, but you do have a point there.
