The problem with Google Chrome…

If Google Were...

I’m not here to measure just how revolutionary open-source web browser Google Chrome is. I did that elsewhere.

The problem with Google Chrome is that people are not supposed to ask if they should paranoid about using it.

The problem with Google Chrome is that an uproar in the blogosphere should not be needed for its questionable privacy policy/license agreement/terms of service to be modified.

Since Google has managed to beat every competitor in every business it enters, people have become in awe—fearful awe—of its size and power.

A great company should build and be built on a trusting relationship with its patrons. But I guess becoming a huge success on the Web is a different story.

  1. Absolutely. Its integrity has suffered a huge blow in my mind. I’m just amazed the original copy came out — I still installed it, on the basis that if it ever came to court or whatever, it would be a walkover — were they serious? What could they possibly have done with copyright of everything input via browser by its users? …Released the internet in book form and deleting the blogosphere for infringement??
