I'm using Chrome 21.0.1180.49 beta on Mac OS X 10.7.4.

Did some Googling and can't figure this out.

I visited a page on earlier this morning. Just noticed that Little Snitch is reporting that is being called every 4-6 seconds or so. I closed the tab after reading the story, a few hours ago.

I created a rule in Little Snitch denying access to, but Chrome is apparently still connecting to it.

(1) Why? and

(2) How can I put an end to this?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Does restarting chrome fix the problem? – soandos Jul 22 '12 at 20:06
That Little Snitch program is quite pointless considering the Same Origin policy, isn't it? I mean, in most cases it is probably ok if google wants to connect with google. (as for your problem either you have a tab or an extension of nypost active somewhere, try restarting as @soandos suggests) – Mahn Jul 22 '12 at 23:28
@Mahn Little Snitch is simply the tool being used to monitor outgoing traffic from the machine. What does this have to do with the same origin policy? – w3dk Jul 23 '12 at 9:33
Ah, nevermind, I thought I read somewhere it was a tool sitting in the browser listening to ajax requests but it looks more like a traditional firewall. – Mahn Jul 23 '12 at 13:03
Which extensions do you use? – Umut Benzer Sep 27 '12 at 9:12

Does it still happen after you completely close Chrome and restart?

If so:

  1. Disable all your plugins / extensions / etc.

  2. Go to chrome://net-internals/ in a new tab and capture the traffic. Find out any referrers, etc. which are triggering this traffic.

  3. Kill whatever process is triggering the traffic from #2

If it still happens, complain on the user forums and offer to provide a HAR file and someone from Google will probably contact you in the forum.

Use Ghostery. Enable blocking and enable the auto-update feature. Enjoy.
