Yesterday I saw this article saying the new Google Chrome browser swallows Pop-Ups, but Advertisers get billed. That probably doesn't bother most users, but it's really going to piss off the market that pays for Internet usage.
Then today heard that my wife's company, a large financial services firm, is black-listing Google Chrome for internal use. The issue is that the Chrome usage license supposedly gives Google ownership of the content viewed in the browser. Purportedly, the usage license would give them access or "ownership" to proprietary corporate information, code, documents, etc., which is totally not cool. Now, I just read the entire Chrome End User License Agreement and don't see anything of the type. From a little deeper research, I see that Google has removed the offensive Big Brother Clause.
So, will it be widely adopted? Firefox, Opera, IE 8 are all coming out with great new features. It's cool to see some browser wars again. The winner will definitely be us, the end users.
