Nice one Google

<For starters, Chrome doesn't install into the regular system applications folder. Instead, it plants itself in the user's home directory. That way, users don't need administrative privileges to install it.>

So Microsoft's dominance of the Corporate World is apparently now in play.

Re: Nice one Google

The problem is it would not be accessing c:\Program Files\ but a virtual path that Vista creates for it! It's a good security measure and one that has been in place for years and nobody respected, now Vista enforces it.

In order to acess Program Files folder you have to create an install according to Microsoft's rules and ask admin permission when instaling.

If that's how you say, Chrome went the easy way and used the user's home directory.

Yeah, but we couldn't give a damn about Vista Users, they are already on IDN compatible browsers. It is the XP crowd that are our concern.

Does this mean that any plug-in's downloaded for Chrome won't be able to do nasties?
