Journal: Fox News and Google Gears?!

Journal by hurting now

Today I was using Chrome and stopped over at Foxnews.com (via Google News). While there, I click on another story. At that point, Google Gears popped up and asked "The website below wants to store information on your computer using Gears. http://www.foxnews.com"

Then there is the cute little box that says I trust this site. Of course I hit deny.

What the hell is going on that neither Foxnews.com or Google Gears says anything about this!? Has anyone else seen this or can share about it?!
