Hi Baris,

You might have missed the screen where user is asked whether he/she wants to send usage statistics on the setup wizard. Since that option seems to be checked on your screenshot, i believe you unintentionally have opted-in during the setup process. So that's technically an opt-in, not an opt-out.


Very interesting, I can't recall that in the setup, maybe I missed it, maybe it's not consistent across all installs.

Either way, just statistically a lot of people will opt-in and they'll still get the benefit.

Ironically, I tried to uninstall and re-install just to see that window, but it wouldn't let me uninstall saying there are open chrome windows, when there weren't any. Beta product.

I am going to try on another computer soon to make sure.

Google toolbar opts into store your history. But then you can search through your history for stuff which is kinda cool.
