The key is whether or not you have "advanced features" tuned on. If you want to stop sending info to Google, open the menu on the toolbar, go to "privacy information" and there is a "disable advanced features" button, and an ENABLED/DISABLED flag Brett_Tabke msg:1102643 9:03 am on Oct 2, 2001 (gmt 0)
When you turn it off, I've never detected it trying to connect at all. I looked extensively. mr_dredd2 msg:1102644 9:06 am on Oct 2, 2001 (gmt 0)
thanks guys - so brett you reckon that just going to view->toolbar etc will disable its sending information? :)
