Google Browser Rumor Persists

Posted on September 1, 2004

Rumors, like this entry on the kottke.org blog, are building that Google might be building a browser to compete with Microsoft. A deal or purchase of a browser such as Mozilla would certainly help Google make a fast jump into the browser market that is dominated by Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

On the other hand would Google really want to be forced to concern itself with all the security issues popular browsers face? Probably not but Kottke writes, "A Google Browser is a no-brainer for them and they have to be thinking about it."
