Google don’t own everything you do online

There’s been a fair bit of buzz about some of the terms and conditions related to the new Google Chrome browser, specifically a bit that seemed to say that google was claiming rights to any user-generated content “submitted, posted or displayed on or through” the browser. Apparently this was just part of their standard terms and conditions which got added to Chrome. Now they’re updating the T’s and C’s to stop people getting quite so freaked out 😀

Google Chrome: A new web browser that looks very interesting

Official Google Blog: A fresh take on the browser.

Chrome looks set to be a big contender in the browser market. It’s built from the ground up to be a different, more secure way of running web apps and browsing. If it lives up to it’s vision it’s likelt to be really impressive!

Check out the Google Comic explaining it. The thing that’s really interesting about this is the way that tabs and plugins are all in seperate processes. This makes me think of Chrome as similar to a Operating System kernel. In many ways Chrome looks like it’s an Operating System for distributed applications.

BTW it looks like the beta will be available today at some point

Google Chrome as an OS

Great Web 2.0 presentation
