Sounds more like Avast is the malware in that case -- they're the ones fucking with your system, not Google. They've also silently installed other software in the past...

Do you have a citation for that case btw? The only one I found was this, which is a case where you can opt out if you're paying attention, just like all those other sleazy browser toolbar plugin funded freeware installers, except in this case they ask at the beginning, and then again at the end only if you said no the first time...

Sigh... inevitably someone will now feel urged to defend Chrome. I can see it coming.

If so, you can thank yourself for starting the 'my browser is better than yours' fight tongue.png
