Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your view, this is how Chrome
works.  As part of the *security/update* model, the product does
automatic updates -- you may be able to turn off automatic updates, but
it might give you grief when it comes to safety and/or security.

I know we are all just meant to trust Google, but I don't think we
should be doing so blindly.
