There are sights that I do not want on my Chrome home page. They are not ones I ever use. Please tell me how to remove and replace them.
You said you enable us to remove icons but you still have not given it up entirely. Please let the user decide what they wants!
Trying to force users to accept the applications underlying your aps is more control than a power or even a casual user wants. They use Chrome because it is useful to them for quick reference. For security concerns I stay away from any social media or from aps that are not within my spectrum of use. Please go back to the original Chrome. Perhaps Google is making money by selling this advertisement but please do not put it on our backs. Google used to take the user into consideration, I see a gradual transition to a fully business model. Why not use comments on aps as a positive marketing tool rather than to punish your users to use them?
