Are the Google guys a trusted group of geeks?

Google Labs is realising a lot of new (beta) services the last couple of months!
This week it’s the Google WebAccelerator 
Lots of blogging took place on this new release Google Beta service. 

Blogging on the subject of anonymous web browsing,

Like this reseach from NIK CUBRILOVIC

  • Google Web Accelerator sends requests for web pages, except for secure web pages (HTTPS), to Google, which logs these requests. Some web pages may embed personal information in these page requests.
  • Google receives and temporarily caches cookie data that your computer sends with webpage requests in order to improve performance.
  • In order to speed up delivery of content, Google Web Accelerator may retrieve webpage content that you did not request, and store it in your Google Web Accelerator cache.

    There are discussions over the possible dark side of this service and over privacy.

    Well, i’m sure Google is going to use theis data for the Pagerank 2.0 they are building. But I think this is a good thing, because it will improve seach results.

    Google has a good public reputation , I see them as a ‘trusted group of geeks’. I don’t think that they are going to sell the statistics to other companies, they don’t need the cash.
    This was actually the first negative news read about Google. But, i still trust them and becuase the caching data is pretty valuable, I’m pretty sure they will keep this data to themselves.

    I’m curious how many people are gonna use this service in the future. If the web accelerator gets good reviews and they can really boost things up (my Gmail works pretty fast), this could be another winner for Google…

  • Money and power can result in bad habits, I hope Google stays away from the dark side
    Will see..
