Microsoft Claims Google Chrome Steals Your Privacy

An anonymous reader writes “Microsoft is going on the offensive against Google, accusing the search giant of creating a browser that does not respect user privacy. The company posted a video, embedded below, on TechNet Edge with the following description: ‘Watch a demo on how Google Chrome collects every keystroke you make and how Internet Explorer 8 keeps your information private through two address bars and In Private browsing.’ Microsoft’s first criticism is Chrome’s combining the address bar and the search box into a single entry box; IE8 keeps those fields separate. ‘By keeping these boxes separate, your privacy is better protected and the addresses of the sites you’re visiting aren’t automatically shared with Microsoft, or anyone else,’ says IE product manager Pete LePage.”
