SRware Iron? Huh...

Ok, I was at the office and trying to download and install Google Chrome in my office laptop and guess what? My antivirus kept deleting it 'coz it sees the install file as a virus (which I know is not and please don't ask me what the antivirus was :)).

So it led me to this software, the site that came out of google said it is a Google Chrome clone but actually they came from the same opensource project called Chromium.

Free application Iron is a slightly modified version of the Chromium source of Google Chrome that removes components of Chrome that report your usage habits to Google. In practice, that means it removes your unique user ID, doesn't send user-specific info to Google, skips crash reporting, and doesn't check with Google for updates. Some features—like crash reporting and update checks—are built into most browsers anyway, but if you're already squeamish with the amount of your information Google already has on its servers, the extra layer of privacy Iron offers might be up your alley.
