If you care about the free and open web you shouldn't use Chrome based browsers.

@bjoern This can be seen as a good thing. It means you can safely use Chromium without worrying about sending your private data (like your bookmarks and saved passwords) to Google via these APIs.

Firefox has similar functionality to creepily take your data, so Chromium is now one of the more privacy friendly browser options.
