+Extending Google Chrome
+=======================
+
+Chrome is Google's browser. Here are some useful tips and extensions:
+
+Disabling Instant Search
+------------------------
+
+Chrome can search as you type. The advantage of this is that you get search
+suggestions and can use Google's predictions - but the disadvantage is that
+every character you type is sent to Google's servers, where it may be logged.
+
+To disable, open Chrome's settings by clicking the menu button at the right of
+the address bar and clicking Settings. Or, simply type `chrome://settings/` in
+your address bar.
+
+Ensure that the **Enable Instant for faster searching (omnibox input may be
+logged)** checkbox is unchecked.
+
+AdBlock for Chrome
+------------------
+
+Just like Firefox, AdBlock removes ads. Install from [this Chrome Webstore
+page](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblock/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom).
+
+HTTPS Everywhere
+----------------
+
+Forces encrypted https connections wherever possible. Installation link can be
+found on the [EFF HTTPS Everywhere
+homepage](https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere).
+
+PrivacyFix
+----------
+
+PrivacyFix (beta) gives you a dashboard view of your privacy settings on
+Facebook and Google, as well as Do-Not-Track headers and tracking cookies. It
+provides links to quickly change these privacy settings without digging through
+many drilldown pages. Install from the [Chrome web store
+page](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/privacyfix-by-privacychoi/pmejhjjecaldkllonlokhkglbdbkdcni)
