Which is a bug that has already been fixed by the Safari and/or the Webkit team. Google seems to be using an outdated version of Webkit for Chrome at this point in time.

It's neat how it automatically checks for updates at Tools>About Google Chrome.

Yea apparently it was something along the lines of Apple not informing them of the newest version. So Google isn't exactly the one to blame here. Nonetheless I give it 6 months to a year and this browser will be seriously contending in all other areas as well.

Has anyone read the Licence Agreement? Scary stuff ... yes they altered the main one but the link to the updated agreement still shows their gaff.

Basically you give away rights to anything you upload using Chrome.


I wouldn't touch it with a very long barge pole :D


Avant does everything I want it to, AND gives proper full-screen (what's the point of having toolbars reducing your available screen area when you're not actually using them?)

I don't think it's as scary as it sounds. After all, it's not that easy to unwillingly give up rights to copyrighted materials. Also, if you're "uploading", then Google can only obtain a copy if it's a) collecting FTP users/passwords or (more likely, but probably not) b) Google is acting as a proxy for uploaded material.

I know the Google Web Accelerator works like a proxy, which might be implemented into Chrome. Though, still, unlikely for "uploads".
