I hear Google Chrome is fast and interesting, but released under a restrictive EULA. Since it's open source, though, could some third party download the source but not the application, build it themselves, and then distribute it to people without all the "No modifying the source code" and "You're required to receive any new installs we send you" wrapping around it? If so, we could get past all the EULA controversy and look at how the application itself is.

This would really only be useful to me once there's a non-Windows version, but it would be reassuring just to know there are people working on an open fork. Anyone know the details of how the EULA and whatever open source license they have interact?

Update: They've made a minor change to the EULA. Still nowhere near usable, but maybe eventually it will be? I hope?
