    Tonight I made the switch from Firefox to Google Chrome, most specifically because of the problem Firefox has when you try to type text on Twitter or Facebook (characters appear about 3 seconds after you type them).

    Then I checked out the Google Dashboard and MAN they save a lot about you. If you have a google email account, go to the address below and sign in.

    Hmm... they got nothing on me but an email address. A bit odd, since I spend about 2k a month on their services.

    There is a menu item in there that claims that if you set up a "google profile," you can control what is displayed when people google you. I don't have time to mess with it right now. But I'd be interested to know if anyone has used this to advantage, or whether google is just fishing for more data.
