    Default I'm an IE user and...

    what you (chrome) and facebook are doing is total bs.

    I'm older and have a daughter who talked me into fb about 2yrs ago. My last visit to fb they now have added a search bar to any page on there. I did some looking and that search bar is run by chrome.exe, which is the entire browser, the frigin thing takes forever to load on my 512mb of memory. Guess what? the chrome.exe is installed but not running, it STARTS and doesn't shut off, in other words I would now have TWO browsers running. HOW DOES .EXE GET ACTIVATED? If this is some kind of browser war, it's totally anoying if using IE. Tell me how to disable the search bar in fb.

    Also, and why does the search bar not appere when using Firefox?

    ACTIVATING .EXE'S WITHOUT A PERSONS KNOWLEDGE IS SPYWARE TO ME.

    Default

    I've disabled the chrome.exe on my system and now fb or others like youtube, wikipeadia etc, don't open with IE, but can still access all the mentioned sites via Firefox, but still no search bar loading all the time. IE users 'BEWARE'.
