why do i have to allow googleapis.com for bob to work?

Postby bob72 on Wed Feb 24, 2010 3:00 pm

seems strange that bob is linked to google?

I use noscript and firefox

I always block anthing with "google" who are the ultimate spy merchants but strange that it should affect BOB addon?

I use jQuery, and I need to fetch that library from somewhere. Google has a few servers that provide that file (and quite some more), so I fetch it from there. How could that information be of service to Google? It's just an IP-adress fetching a file, and they shouldn't have any idea why.

(doesn't happen a lot btw, file is only fetched on install/upgrade.)
