    I almost stopped using WordPress because the admin console was so slow. Now I am on 2.6+ and using gears and Google Chrome browser to do admin work and posting. I cannot believe how fast my admin console is now. I did a high definition video of it on my wordpress blog at http://www.beginnerstutorials.com/?tag=browsers

    Looks pretty good. I’m a MAC, so I can’t try it out yet. But to tell the truth, it doesn’t look that much faster than the browser I use now (and have used for quite a while), which is Seamonkey.

    On my XP laptop, it is definitely faster than IE7 and FF 2.0.0.16, but it has a ways to go to catch up with Safari 3 on XP.

    If nobody read the Chrome ToS, this is part of it. I’ll stay with IE and FF.

    Right out of the box, Chrome took up 67 MB of hard disk space. Look in your C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome

    I’m certainly passing until I see an Ad block extension.

    What ellaella points out is very very important.

    …readers have pointed out a Chrome condition of service that effectively lets Google use any of your copyrighted material posted to the web via Chrome without paying you a cent.

    Ella, thanks a lot for posting that. I will in no way, give Google, or anyone else, rights over my stuff, period.

    Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to fire up my PC laptop and uninstall it and then do a malware scan to get rid of whatever bullsh*t it slipped in when I installed it.

    I’m glad to be of help. As I understand it (and I might well be wrong) those terms apply to anything posted with Chrome, even comments left on sites. What chuzpah.

    Matt Cutts clarifies. The clause is coming out:

    #261897

    It should never have been there. Copy and paste without thorough review will get you in trouble every time, and some of those who read about the EULA issues, will simply never go back, regardless.

    #261899

    That’s right, Richard. Lawyers, eh? The clauses they ‘inadvertently leave in’ will steal the ice cream in your Grandma’s freezer.

    Yes, they are always hoping you won’t read that agreement or contract carefully. It’s always just an oversight though, never intentional.

    It will be interesting to see what the end product turns out like. There are already at least one disturbing security hole reported, and it seems that by default (you can turn it off), Chrome phones home with every keystroke you make when you type a URL into the address bar. In other words, they track every URL you type, or partially type, or type and delete, in the address bar. And, it crashes and doesn’t seem to handle flash-heavy websites well.

    It is BETA though, so one would think most of the issues will be resolved.

    The Chrome TOS have already changed.

    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.

    That’s it.

    jennifer – do you have a link for that?

    #261927

    Here it is online: http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html and it does reflect the above.
