    You open your browser to look at the web. Do you know who is looking back at you?

    Over a recent week of web surfing, I peered under the hood of Google Chrome and found it brought along a few thousand friends. Shopping, news and even government sites quietly tagged my browser to let ad and data companies ride shotgun while I clicked around the web.

    This was made possible by the web’s biggest snoop of all: Google. Seen from the inside, its Chrome browser looks a lot like surveillance software.

    Couple days ago I was on Amazon looking for a little wooden box for some storage. Next site I went to was MSN. Yep, there were the little wooden boxes that I had been looking at a few seconds before - who says they are tracking us? :)

    I use firefox :-(
