Come to find out that when you say *Do not track me*,
their answer is that it really does not matter if you check that or not,
since most Websites do not change their behaviour when you ask them NOT to track you.

Tells me that even Chrome does not care ?
What it should tell you is that Google is honest enough to tell you something about how Do Not Track works.

Firefox doesn't have the info directly in the program, but they do provide a link to an FAQ that explains how the Do Not Track feature works.

This has nothing to do with Chrome or Firefox. It's simply an option you check and individual web sites need to see if you have the option set or not and it's up to them to either respect what you've checked or not.

If you really care, use an anodizing proxy service.

How did we get from opening tabs automatically to this suggestion?

Hold down command/control when clicking on a link.

A normal person with concerns, gripes and whining about Chrome would go to the Chrome Forums where people are much more conversant with the product:

irman: check your settings. When I click on a link, it will create a new tab, and the tab will open automatically.

stopped using chrome because clicking the back button with the mouse, I expect the page to go back right away... this does not happen all the time with chrome and it sometimes takes 5-10 clicks before the page will go back. Unacceptable. It's worse with adblock installed, but I won't use a browser without it. I tried briefly. It's horrible. Firefox is more secure and less buggy on my powerful hardware.

I did change my bookmarks around in firefox so I no longer need the bookmarks sidebar though, something forced on my by chrome but now I enjoy the setup. All the folders are listed in the bookmarks toolbar at the top of the page. However with widescreen I can definitely see the advantages of having the sidebar, so firefox better not get rid of it.

Have they finally made the scrollbars wider and thus the position easier to see?

If you search the chrome store for "Tab Activate", you should find what you're looking for.
Put your mouse over the link, right click, and you should have the option of opening in a new tab. Alternatively, you can get an extension, and you also can hover over the settings icon (the one with 3 horizontal lines at the top right of your browser) and select new tab.

Love Chrome. I do use three Chrome extensions to keep my info private. One is called Disconnect, second is called My permissions Cleaner, and the third is called Last Pass (to keep passwords safe). They seem to work flawlessly.

Middle click works even better. One button click, instead of click, move, click.

Even better, I have "Snap links" for FF, and can right click and draw a square around every link on a page and open them all at once.
