google chrome....

So i am running little snitch (program that manages any automated calls to home from other programs) and Chrome, while i don't have it open or running in the background tries to connect to the internet at least 10 times a day. Only when it's closed, not when i'm using it.

Seems weird, anyone run little snitch or something of the like? Anyone know why it's trying to connect all day long when not in use?

That seems weird Joe. I use Chrome and have Little Snitch and I haven't come across that problem.
