    Ooh, my nephew was required to use Google Chrome for school daily, so hopefully his school is aware of this, and taking precautions measure.

    @vinaya You are a bit confused. This article is not about Chrome, but a browser that is loosely based on Chrome, Google has nothing to do with the development of Comodo.

    This has nothing to do with Chrome, Comodo is a custom browser that is based on the Chrome browser which is at the same time based on the Chromium platform, but they are not the same. So rest assured knowing there is nothing wrong with Chrome :I

    That is good to know and thank you for the reassurance!

    BTW-I just install Chrome browser on my MacBook but not very comfortable with it yet, like I used to on Window. Lots of learning to do :)
