    It's not exactly clear what they've done with it, but it wouldn't surprise me if they kept "a copy for future uses".

So even (semi-)governments can spy on you without it being lawful at all.

    And sadly, you're not mistaken.

    I'm not so sure I agree with the previous poster's arguments, but I do agree that there aren't really any good governments on this planet currently.

    In all likelihood the impact will be almost nothing on Chromium itself. PPAPI flash was only ever really loaded when you needed it and it wasn't really that heavy, nor was the code to host it all that much.

    Oh, you are upset about that? So I sincerely hope you also abstain to:

    - Use a smartphone;
    - Use a third party e-mail provider;
    - Use any online service, free or paid;

    Among another things.

    Even Firefox come with "telemetry"on by default. So I hope you do your part to remain anonymous, otherwise "Spying Chrome" is just childish bellyaching.
    No need. I disable the location service on my smartphone,and live in Europe where collecting personal data is illegal, and Firefox asks you, you can decline. Not even sure what the default is in firefox, but it did ask.
