I was intrigued as to whether this would be passed onto something as massive as a browser - and was amazed when I was reading through the terms.
Blake and James have interesting points above - however I believe these are overshadowed by the very top line - "These Terms of Service apply to the executable code version of Google Chrome. " This statement must be read in conjuction with the following statement - thereby expressly inferring that it applies to Chrome.
My reading and understanding of these TOS, prima facie, implies that under Clause 11 - anything you enter into the browser 'which is a Google product/service' can be used by Google whenver they want - now or in the future.
It's enough to never want to use this browser. Send an email through yahoo using chrome - Google Own it. Post a facebook message - Google own it. Send an idea about a new business through Chrome - Google own it. Yes these are exagerations - but they are not limitations under that clause.
Until Google remove such errenous conditions - no a chance in hell I am using that browser.
