If you’re one of those who’ve dumped your old browser for Chrome and you’re also a member of Orkut,a social networking service by Google, then you can notice an alert on your profile page saying…

orkut profile page

“Awesome, you’re using Google Chrome! Don’t forget to feed it donuts!”

Quote such as “Feeding donuts to Chrome” should have been properly elaborated for the sake of disambiguation but there is no link associated with this message to elaborate the statement..

According to us, this is an indirect way of convincing a Chrome user to enable an option of sending user’s usage statistics to Google for their analysis.

However, Google is projecting this “Stats feedback” as a method of improving Chrome but the story does not end here.

One of the main purposes of Google behind this is to analyse a user’s web surfing trends which has always received a ‘blurred estimation’ by various web analytics and internet companies.

We have earlier reviewed Chrome (by comparing with IE8) & wrote a lot of good things about this Google’s product. But one area, where IE8 scores more than Chrome is definitely Safer browsing.
