Google has launched a seemingly bizarre program, called Screenwise. The program pays users $5 if they install a browser extension on the Chrome browser, which then tracks everything users do and sends the information to Google. This is a strange program, especially at a time when Google is in over its head with privacy changes, antitrust allegations and changing core company values. In all of this, the accusation “Tracking Users!” won’t be welcome.
