Google Chrome sends back all kinds of data.
G says no..
Wireshark says G are telling porky pies..;)..
In addition to diberry's Oct 8, 2012 thread...
What user metrics does Google use to determine rank?

Matt Cutts: Organic Algo Does Not Use Any Chrome Data
Aug 23, 2012
The sources that ergophobe references in the Chrome discussion, including official Google sources cited, fully acknowledge that data is being sent back to Google. I don't think that's the issue. The question is what data might be privileged to Chrome vs any other browser, how to interpret what Google's saying in its privacy policies, and what, if anything, might be used by the organic algo.
I'll be kicking the latter thread up, hoping that Leosghost might be willing to share what he's seeing on Wireshark with various policies and theories discussed on the Chrome thread. Probably the best place for his comments is on the dedicated Chrome discussion.
