Re: That'll confuse users

So many people say their browser is 'Google'

I asked someone to open Internet Explorer yesterday. To click on a bookmark.

He got confused of course, and when I went over to help, I found he'd opened Chrome and typed "internet explorer" into the search box...

As he doesn't know what a browser is, I can only conclude that he ended up with Chrome when Google were marketing it like spyware, so you got a "free" download of it when you installed/updated Flash or Adobe's PDF reader.
