    Thank You for this ‘Chrome’ insite. I’ve used another version called ‘Torch’ & have been very happy with some of their built in features. I used to have ‘Kaspersky’ security, but then switched to a free version of ‘McAfee’ (AOL) & they won’t let me download the ‘Torch anymore; saying it has a trojan in the program? Ever heard of this, or have an article I could read about it?
