    yeah its very cool. but you have to turn off autocomplete and change the search engine from google to something else and you can't post anything without giving google the right to change it.

    there is a function which u can open your webpage in a incognito window. So if we do that right, neither the com we surf on or google will have the data right? If that is true, can u suggest y they want to include this function?

    Incognito mode only removes the cookie(s) that are set by a potential website, it does not prevent them from using the information as described in their terms of use, and depending on how they set up the service (chrome) they may actually track what you do in the incognito mode and what you do in the regular mode

    The first part is true. Google will use the data from what you're searching for and/or browsing to augment their analytics and use the information for the ad-based technologies.

    The second is not. That's just a default part of the EULA. It'll be removed if it hasn't been already. They had the same problem with Google Docs. It included the same language and was removed when they deemed it didn't apply. Basically, it's laziness on the part of their legal department more than anything else.

    I think that's being overly paranoid.

    The link about how to crash it is legit. Apparently it is easily crashed. I think I'll wait till it's been around awhile - had some of the bugs knocked out of it. Does sound very promising though.

    Absolutely. After posting, I followed some of the other links from the blog post on the crash bug and found that GC has a Java exploit inherited from the outdated version of webkit upon which it is based that can allow hackers to run programs on your HD. That makes it (GC) a 'testing only' browser at best as far as I'm concerned, just like IE, and Safari 3 Win. But I generally don't even test code in a browser until it is out of beta.

    Notes: Safari 3 Win has supposedly overcome this Java exploit, but considering that Apple is a relative novice when it comes to writing browsers for Windows, I'm still not convinced it is a safe browser. I'll stick to Opera and FF for actual browsing, using others at my own risk for testing purposes only. One exception - IE on trusted sites that benefit from one or more of its unique features.
