More and more people are getting upset about Chrome doing sneaky stuff. Good.

I like locally stored music as I can't stand interruptions due to bad connectivity (or for any reason really). So I can understand your choice.
Still, we're moving fast away from a free and open web to one that is fully controlled by G👀gle. And there will be only 1 party benefiting from that.
