GOOGLE CHROME: if its from google it must be good


Just downloaded Google Chrome last night and i am so happy with this browser from google, i loved firefox but after using chrome i swear i'll never use any other browser again!  if it is from Google it must be good!!!

Why do i recommend Chrome? it loads faster, the design is so simple, and i know YOU would love this, it has an incognito mode wherein you can browse the net stealthily especially if you are surfing unsafe websites at work!  

and whenever you open a new tab it automatically shows thumbnails of your most visited sites

it just made a commotion when they released it because the first EULA of TOS states that:

11. Content license from you 

11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling Google to display, distribute and promote the Services and may be revoked for certain Services as defined in the Additional Terms of those Services. 

11.2 You agree that this license includes a right for Google to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals with whom Google has relationships for the provision of syndicated services, and to use such Content in connection with the provision of those services. 

11.3 You understand that Google, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users, may (a) transmit or distribute your Content over various public networks and in various media; and (b) make such changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media. You agree that this license shall permit Google to take these actions. 

11.4 You confirm and warrant to Google that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the above license.

so normally, bloggers and writers got pissed with this clause because google would then have the copyright to own your blogs content!  good thing Google already modified their EULA and change the content license to:

11. Content license from you

11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services.

and yes, i made this post using google chrome =)

you can download google chrome here.  

P.S. i wasnt paid to blog this

They did change their EULA!!! Which is great.
However, users should be aware of a major flaw in Chrome:
"An issue exists in how chrome behaves with undefined-handlers in chrome.dll version 0.2.149.27. A crash can result without user interaction. When a user is made to visit a malicious link, which has an undefined handler followed by a 'special' character, the chrome crashes with a Google Chrome message window "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. Restart now?". It crashes on "int 3" at 0x01002FF3 as an exception/trap (kernel), followed by "POP EBP" instruction when pointed out by the EIP register at 0x01002FF4." - From Dailydave

In layman's terms: if a link ends with a special character, Google Chrome will crash.

Proof of concept of this flaw is located at:

Thanks for stopping by.

Do not use anything having to do with G@@GLE. Even if they do not own it, you will be opening all your online behaviors to them.

I'm actually using it now and it's pretty fast! indi pa ko nag-lalag...samantalang sa firefox tigil lang sya ng tigil...the setback is that...it's almost 50 mb...!!! and wla nung file bookmark..internet option..blah blah...

i'm gonna keep this for a while for a test...ndi ko muna tatanggalin ung Firefox namin..

in fairness mabilis tlga sya..kung sa ie wla akong marating, kung sa firefox matagal...eto mabilis ^_^
