Chrome says I've visited it...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
After a series of BSOD's I finally just gave up and reinstalled 7 (1 pass of KillDisk to clean the hdd). I eventually installed GTA again and also googled a game save... Chrome/Google says i've visited a site 3 times (May). I have visited it before, probably more than 3 times, but why/how did it know i've visited it before? I would think the visit info would be in local logs or cookies...

Just an interesting find and question.

Chrome sends a little bit of usage data to Google I think. I dunno if that's what it's doing in this case, but that's what it sounds like to me.

chrome sends usage data to google if you have the option set (which is default i think). And either way, I think it still sends info to google anyway.
