“To see if the browser is doing something naughty/The Tell Tale console spilled the browser’s sins forever more”
If they read between the lines, discerning viewers will note the hint of dislike that this particular individual has for Flock. If we for a moment set aside the insults against the browser’s character, there are some legitimate concerns being expressed which should probably be answered.

- The “Gather anonymous usage statistics” box was left checked during the browser install.
- The browser is checking for updates for the browser/extensions/installed search engines.
