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.

Fantastic. You're comparing Google to Mozilla. Bravo.

Clue: they provide vastly different services (the only overlap is Chrome, which is based on Chromium, that Google provides as open source software)

Congratulation, you missed that the article talks about Chrome being bundled and nothing else. That's right. Blind much. Very. Very. Much.
