I understand I've obviously offended you by daring to complain about what I regard as sleazy behaviour. It appears Adobe and Google can do no wrong.
I'll make the point again. This is a Flash UPDATE. Previously you just hit Enter to install one of its many updates. Placing a ticked option on an Update screen without even proper description (the changing the default browser and installig the toolbar description were only added later) is a deliberate attempt to trick you into installing software you don't need. They only had to leave it unticked if they wanted to provide people with the option.
Both Apple and Microsoft provide default browsers with their OS and Chrome has no advantages over either and, as I pointed out for my usage, it also has limitations. If you really do feel the need to change your picture frame to yet another browser, you can do it at any number of websites.
Oh and you should really read the article first. The whole point here is Chrome can replace IE and make itself the default browser.
