Google backs down over privacy concerns on Chrome

Google has made an embarrassing backdown after it would be revealed that the company would have the right to use any information that was entered into websites using their new Chrome browser, just a day after it was release.

The clause on its "End User License Agreement" (EULA) has been removed, after it allowed users to 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 information that was typed into a website.

It also allowed Google to share that information with other companies that Google has relationships with.

It has been quickly changed to give users back their copyright over their information.
