Google has had a sudden change of heart as regards the terms & conditions for the use of its new Chrome web browser – which is already courting some controversy over what is effectively a porn viewing tab (although there is a similar 'no history, no cookies' facility on IE8).

Clause 11.1 of the Google browser's conditions of service originally read…

11. Content licence from you

11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights that you already
hold in Content that 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 licence to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish,
publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content that you
submit, post or display on or through the Services.
This licence 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.

However this has now been revised (with effect from 8:30 GMT, 4 September '08) to read…

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