Is this Google tracking?

Once in a while, when trying to load a page, I can see that my browser (Chrome) is telling me that its accessing csi.gstatic.com. What is this? Searching for this seems to imply its Google-related but I couldn't find a clear explanation for this.

Sneaky browser.

How is that Google Chrome can automatically update on OS 10.6 without any user interaction (admin password), but other auto updating software requires an admin password? I don't remember giving Chrome permission to write to my application folder.

Choose my own fonts in Chrome?

Is there an extension that lets use my own font choices in Chrone? Firefox has an option that doesn't let web sites choose fonts and I want something like that. There's one called Plainclothes and it does too many other things.

Running 16bit Windows program via a browser or some other solution

I have a small simple 16 bit windows application that I need access to from a couple dozen Windows 7 64 bit computers. Unfortunately we lost some of the source code so recompiling it is not in the cards any time soon. Is there a way I can host this app on something like Amazon AWS and give all these users access to run the app via a browser or some other method? Installing VM lite or the windows virtual pc is not an option unfortunately. These users would need access to this program concurrently. The VMWare solutions are far too expensive and the VMLite product that might help we won't be out for some time. Thank you for reading my post. Have a great one.

Recipe for super-duper website cookies?

Some websites I use log me in automatically (Facebook) with full access to the site. Some automatically log me on, but require PW confirmation if I want to do something that may potentially compromise my security (LinkedIn, Amazon). Some websites demand a login each time I access the page (banking/trading sites; some of which save my login ID, none of which save my PW).I know precious little about this stuff. Cookies, is it?
