Google annoyance

view full story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – At work i have to admin a small network of public shared computers (running Windows) at a university. I have always had google.com as the start page, mainly because is a superlight search page with no ads or other annoyances popping in the screen. Last week i have found that it showed a big logo of google chrome and an offer to install it. Till there there's no big issue, but then i realize that a few computers have chrome installed, and i know that because of a popup window that appears showing something like "a new version of Chrome have been downloaded" and asking to upgrade.
