      cnet: “Be sure to read Chrome’s fine print”

      RWW: “Does Google Have Rights to Everything You Send Through Chrome?”

    • Gerrit Eicker 07:57 on 4. September 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Cutts: “I knew that Google didn’t want to assert rights on what people did using Google Chrome, so I asked the Chrome team and Google lawyers for their reaction or to clarify (probably several other people pinged them too). Here’s what I heard back from Rebecca Ward, the Senior Product Counsel for Google Chrome: ‘In order to keep things simple for our users, we try to use the same set of legal terms (our Universal Terms of Service) for many of our products. 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. We are working quickly to remove language from Section 11 of the current Google Chrome terms of service. This change will apply retroactively to all users who have downloaded Google Chrome.'”

      ars: “Google’s Rebecca Ward, Senior Product Counsel for Google Chrome, now tells Ars Technica that the company tries to reuse these licenses as much as possible, ‘in order to keep things simple for our users.’ Ward admits that sometimes “this means that the legal terms for a specific product may include terms that don’t apply well to the use of that product” and says that Google is ‘working quickly to remove language from Section 11 of the current Google Chrome terms of service. This change will apply retroactively to all users who have downloaded Google Chrome.'”

      Macworld: “Google said Wednesday it would dump one section of the end-user licensing agreement that gave the company ‘a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through’ the new browser.”

    Chrome Needs a Security-Update 

    Google’s Chrome, based on an old version of WebKit, inherited a potentially serious security flaw; http://is.gd/2agp

      Heise: “Es handelt sich bei Googles neuem Webbrowser Chrome ja derzeit offiziell eigentlich nur um eine Beta-Version. Allerdings finden sich in dieser am gestrigen Dienstag zum Download freigegebenen Version Schwachstellen, die kombiniert zu einer Sicherheitslücke anwachsen, sodass man derzeit von größeren Tests auf Produktiv-Systemen absehen sollte.”

      FTD: “Wenige Stunden nach dem Marktstart haben Sicherheitsexperten erste Lücken in Googles neuem Browser Chrome entdeckt. Die Spezialisten beschreiben einen Softwarefehler, durch die Nutzer dazu gebracht werden können, schädliche Programme auf ihrem Computer zu starten. … Datenschützer zeigten sich zudem besorgt darüber, dass jede Chrome-Installation mit einer Nummer verbunden ist. Nutzer könnten so einfach durch Google identifiziert werden.”

    Google Chrome 

    Google‘s open source browser Chrome shall soon add value for users and innovation on the web; http://is.gd/27vR

      TC: “Live From Google Chrome Press Event”

      NYT: “Does the world really need another Web browser? … Google argues that current Web browsers were designed eons ago, before so many of the developments that characterize today’s Web: video everywhere, scams and spyware, viruses that lurk even on legitimate sites, Web-based games and ambitious Web-based programs like Google’s own Docs word processor. As Google’s blog puts it, ‘We realized that the Web had evolved from mainly simple text pages to rich, interactive applications and that we needed to completely rethink the browser.‘ … For now, it’s best to think of Chrome as exactly what it purports to be: a promising, modern, streamlined, nonbloated, very secure alternative to today’s browsers. You should do exactly what Microsoft, Apple and the Firefox folks will all be doing: try it out and keep your eye on it.”

      TC: “GetClicky Analytics Service Tracking 2% Google Chrome Usage

      ClickZ: “While Google’s entry into the browser wars has few, if any, direct implications for advertisers, indirect ones are easy to spot.”

      Carr: “Although I’m sure Google would be thrilled if Chrome grabbed a sizable chunk of market share, winning a ‘browser war’ is not its real goal. Its real goal, embedded in Chrome’s open-source code, is to upgrade the capabilities of all browsers so that they can better support (and eventually disappear behind) the applications. The browser may be the medium, but the applications are the message.”

      TC: “This is a straight shot over the bow of Microsoft, which has tightly integrated its Live Search offering into its dominant Internet Explorer browser (and which, surprise, is in turn tightly integrated into Windows). It also makes for an awkward relationship with Mozilla, whose Firefox browser Google basically funds.”

      TC: “Microsoft, meanwhile, is stuck with a bloated closed source browser that they don’t even tether to their search engine for fear of more antitrust woes. Google can push their search engine and other web services all day long on Chrome, with no government interference. So not only will Chrome drive lots of incremental revenue to Google, it also paves the way for a Microsoft-free computing experience.”

      NYT: “Chrome sharpens Google’s already intense competition with Microsoft, the maker of Internet Explorer, by far the most popular browser on the Web. Google hopes that Chrome will loosen Microsoft’s grip on the browser market, which it fears Microsoft could leverage to promote its struggling search and advertising business at the expense of Google’s.”

      IHT: “Chrome also puts Google in competition with an ally, Mozilla Corp., which manages the Firefox project. Just last week, Google renewed its deal with Mozilla. Under the arrangement, Google Search is the home page for Firefox and Google is its default search bar, and Google makes substantial payments to Mozilla. The agreement runs through November 2011.”

      RWW: “Chrome looks pretty hot to us; it seems to include many state of the art details and several things that will push the envelope. Google, and millions of us, may love Firefox – but that’s no reason to stop innovating elsewhere.”

      Scobelizer: “Google still has a sense of humor”

      pC: “Google To Launch New Web Browser Chrome Tomorrow; Open Source”

      TP, Gassner: “Aber: Findet jemand eigentlich kritische Töne? Ich bisher nicht. Es wurde zwar in Vorberichten zum Google-Browser angedeutet, dass die Herrschaft über Inhaltszugang und Anzeigeprogramm gleichzeitig zu Problemen führen könnten, aber offenbar hat die Präsentationsweise als Comic eines berühmten Zeichners, das Open-Sourcing aller Komponenten und die Feature-Beschreibung diese Töne erst einmal verstummen lassen. Wir werden sie sicher noch zu hören kriegen.”

      i’ve been using Chrome for about a day now and it seems to be a lot faster than FireFox or IE… though i do miss the “recently closed tabs” feature in Firefox

      Freitag: “Wenn zur Veröffentlichung von Googles Chrome nun behauptet wird, Google würde nun endgültig synonym mit dem Internet werden wollen, weil Adresseingabe und Suchmaschine gekoppelt sind, weil es nicht mehr nur ein Programm neben anderen ist, weil on- und offline ununterscheidbar geworden sind, weil nun direkter Zugriff auf Cookies mit Nutzerinformationen möglich ist und nicht mehr nur indirekter durch die Toolbars und die Werbelinks, oder ganz einfach, weil die Browseroberfläche seit Anbeginn des World Wide Webs mit dem Internet gleichgesetzt ist – dann ist das naiv. Google war und ist nichts anderes als das Internet in Reinform. Extrem wandlungsfähig und zur Herausbildung von vielen bunten Formen fähig. Insofern hat sich mit Chrome – und erst recht mit Google News Archive Search – überhaupt nichts geändert.”
