They plan to remove section 11 after it was placed there "by mistake," after the uproar...almost like they planned for no one to notice.

Here's a bit of insight about the legal part; thankfully, people (attorneys) like Tap The Hive do read the EULAs.

Thanks for the posting. I agree with the author on that site, that it was a misunderstanding. They were undoubtedly trying to protect themselves for some scenarios when they want to use content and inadvertantly crafted what looks like an illegal agreement.

Ozzie_c_cobblepot it's not an illegal agreement at all.  it's much similar to if you try out for a reality tv show like american idol.

Some of the interpretations of the as-written agreement give Google the right to use anything I type into the browser... I doubt that such an agreement would be enforceable and/or legal.

I mean, just because someone signs something doesn't mean that the agreement stands.

I play 1 min blitz games all the time.  Used Chrome with it for 4 hours today.  Worked great and chess.com was way faster.

My computer is screwed up or something, I'm not getting the ultra speed...

And theres the new EULA!

Not sure when it was fixed, sometime in the past few hours:

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.

I must say, second day out, lots of complaints, fixed extremely quickly.

Google tweaks Chrome licence text

The EULA was causing a global uproar, so it looks like they've already changed the licensing text

The window in which we insert a diagram or sequence of moves when we post a new topic in the forums does not load. Hope it fixes soon.Ciao

Yes. It starts talking about parses instead.

Buggy and it has security issues I read the other day it was vulnerable to the carpet bombing issue Safari had.

What is carpet bombing?

Same here.  Don't know why, but it's not a big issue for me.  I'm still using Firefox as my main browser for the forseeable future.  Chrome is nice though, and it's only going to get better and better. Cool
