I think Chrome is awesome. It's at least 10 times faster to start up than Firefox on my XP laptop. Unlike some of my peers at ZD, I don't have a problem adopting it as my default browser. Chrome's EULA definitely raised some eyebrows thought with its
perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content.
Google pulled that clause yesterday, spinning it as a lawyer mistake.
"Sometimes, as in the case of Google Chrome, this means that the legal terms for a specific product may include terms that don't apply well to the use of that product," she said. (BBC)
The new clause simply states:
11. Content license from you 11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. (Chrome EULA)
Ah, that's better.
But a mistake? Google claimed similar rights for Docs last year, until user concerns forced them to pull back.
