Spy?
So stick with IE8 and let your details spill through the entire Internet.
Everybody spies in the Internet.
But at least G Chrome allows you to SET what you want public and what not.

Fast. Quick response, relatively simple interface, imports FF and IE bookmarks... Not much to rag on. Built-in flash and pdf support. Nice.
