Google to enter Web browser market?

The Web is abuzz with speculation that Google is planning to introduce a Web browser. Google recently hired one of the main developers of Java, the lead developer on Avalon (Microsoft’s code name for the Longhorn user interface), and four developers who worked on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. The company has even registered the domain name, and recently held a Mozilla Development Day at its campus. “A Gbrowser would be able to tie in all of Google’s offerings in a single, neat package: Gmail, Froogle, Blogger, and search. Would instant messaging be far off?” writes Rich Duprey for the The Motley Fool. “The possibilities seem endless and would vault Google well beyond Yahoo! or AOL. Whether it could ultimately supplant Internet Explorer as the premier Web browser is open to speculation.”
