Sorry. I thought my comments were relevant to the original questioner. "Latest Chrome doesn't run"
I noticed the System Monitor showing several Chromium programs running
for some minutes. I assume they are collecting data about my usage, but
it is using my broadband allocation which is quite expensive here. So I
have switched to using Firefox only until I see similar behaviour by it.
I would like your advice on this data collection running in the
background . How much of this activity is reasonable? How do I track it
Thanks again. Chas.
