in thread [OT]: Google browser(Updated!)

Thanks shmen for the interesting links.

I read the comic

I was a strong Google fan up until then but I have now changed my mind, they too seem to be looking for world domination like Microsoft.

The latest EULA and the copywrite implications also mentioned by FunkyMonk are very worrying.

I have never opted in to the any of Google's usage stats in the past and I won't be installing the new Browser with that end user agreement

    The EULA really bothers me. On one hand, I like the product. Better memory management for the browser and better garbage collection and performance for Javascript? That's great. On the other, there is no way in heck I can stomach that EULA.

    Edit: The register is reporting they changed the EULA. Still, what I'm really hoping for from this is it makes the other browser creators step it up in terms of offering excellent JavaScript support.
