I am no longer surprised about how many companies are trying to find out about customers through the internet. I think that it would be better if they let you know that they are getting information about your browsing history instead of going behind the scene and doing it in a sneaky way. I have no problem with them knowing my browsing history as long as they are not getting anything really private through my web browsing.
I don’t find anything wrong with what they are doing. If the information they obtain is only used for marketing products or links that I would be interested in. I think that it would be convenient for a website to only display links that would be useful to me. Besides I am not really concerned because I use the Chrome browser.
