    Most of the time when White does this against me the next move (after dxc6) is Nxe5, which is easily refuted by Qd4. I think exchange variations like this one and in the French are cowardly for White; Black easily equalizes and is able to start building pressure. 5. O-O must be the best move but it's definitely not anything forcing a win.

    Giving up the bishop pair this early can't be worth it.

    but then black has more center control and will snap up the free pawn straight after, so therefore white is somewhat better off

    Supergamer: as can be seen in the database statistics, Black is in no trouble at all.

    I use this one almost always. If its followed by 4...dxc6 5.O-O, Black is in trouble.
