Tries to install Google chrome and sets it as your default browser. There are rumors that this "option" is not actually optional. I wouldn't know since I didn't get past installation as this is unacceptable to me.

Imagine if every program you installed also installed other programs and messed with your settings. Send a clear message to developers.

Pros
  • You may like Google chrome.
  • You may not like the hassle of installing things individually.
  • You may like your computer telling you what to do with your computer.
  • It does have the decency to be upfront about it and gives you the option to untick it.
Cons
  • If your not computer illiterate, then this is nothing less than annoying and at worst dishonest quasi-malware. "bloatware."
  • Chances are you already have a functional web browser (how else are you reading this?) there is no reason for any program to do this besides heavy handed marketing.
