Ah, now I see why they've released a web browser. It's definitely not one for me, thank you very much.

Where will targetted advertising go next? Say I'm looking to buy a replacement printer, so I use Chrome to browse a number of manufacturers' sites then buy from one of them. Google sells today's history to the manufacturers, who send me loads of spam and special offers I don't want. Anonymous browsing isn't just for perverts: we all need it for the perfectly legitimate reason that we don't want to have to fend off unwanted sales pitches. Grrr!
