Quoting the PC World article:
"sraeli company Red Bend filed a lawsuit this week against Google, charging the search giant with infringing one of its patents.
The suit alleges that Google uses Red Bend's patented technology in Courgette, a method Google uses to compress updates and send them to its Chrome browser.
Courgette is a compression algorithm that Google developed to shrink the size of updates in order reduce bandwidth requirements for Google and its users, and also to reduce the potential for vulnerabilities, it says on a page describing the technology.

Subversion should be sued too. When I perform a "svn up" on my online application it only download the changed parts of the program and it's updated.
