Reading between lines in your mail, it appears that Chrome is actually sending every keystroke to the mothership. By default, except for web history which I never accepted but found enabled one day. You can (or will be able to) avoid some or all of it with extra settings, but right now (unless you take precautionary measures) everything is sent and stored. Given that the US government has the right to access all that information without a search warrant, I would think it is likely they are filtering all that data and sipping it for, don't know, terrorist-related patterns. Given that all that data correlates nicely with your gmail inbox (also available) and now with your real name and stats (thanks to Google+), it only takes a few keystrokes to point the drones your way...
Quick, do they make 10-feet-thick titanium-foil hats?
