It does, it sends things without telling you, for safebrowsing,
certificates check or just tracking or services you did not ask for if
you did not deactivate them, the image comes from  project which was
proxying to a server, you can check this with your browser using a proxy
or just with something like wireshark.
It's not marginal and I think should be included in the stats.

I was not suggesting to use something like Collusion/LightBeam and do
the traceroute from the browser, I don't see any easy means to emulate
normal browsing inside the browser for different sites, so maybe a
plugin can be developed for this (or, easier, if you trust it and it
appears that it behaves really like a browser, you can use a Chrome app )
Then the connexion requests go to the proxy which proceeds with the
The Testers will have to install two things but the results will be more
realistic than with a server only solution.
