The extensive user base allows Google to obtain valuable information about its flagship browser – Chromium via Google Crash Reports. This information is then used by the developers to continuously monitor their performance and improve if necessary. In addition, new feature requests, bug reports, and other updates tend to make the browser more user-oriented. But there is a problem here! In all of this, Google also searches for personal information about its users. Fortunately, there is a way to disable this behavior.
