Wild speculation on the future of Google Chrome and people power wins the day

Google’s Chrome continues to generate lots of media attention and wild speculation on its potential future and impact on the browser world. The wife and I took our four year-old daughter to the Natural History museum in London today, and I even found an article on Chrome in one of the free papers that get thrust at you everywhere you go after 4pm in central London. Rather oddly, they were comparing “the big three”, with Chrome being one of them. 😕

Anyway, of more technical relevance, here are two nicely juxtaposed artcles:

On a different note, there was much talk yesterday over the clause in the End User License Agreement (EULA) that claimed Google gained a non-exclusive right to do what they wanted with every bit of data you viewed through Chrome, as well as every bit of data you uploaded via Chrome. Unsurprisingly, such a ridiculous clause made a lot of people unhappy. The good news is that Google rapidly responded to that unhappiness and the clause has now been removed from the EULA.
