Google Enters The Browser Wars

Well it seems to be official...... Google will be releasing a web browser dubbed "Google Chrome". It is still in debate among bloggers wether Google will use Gecko, WebKit - Khtml, or their own engine creation. From what I have read people seem divided over the browser news. Some are welcoming google into the browser wars citing "The more the merrier" this will prod browser developers in releasing a better browser, trying to get ahead of the other guy. Then there is the alternate view.....Some are grimacing at googles idea with headlines and comments  like "Google eats it's young" & "Google just screwed Firefox".  You see Google has a financial interest in Firefox and the entire Mozilla project. If this "power company" pulls the dollars out will the Mozilla Foundation survive? Well thats a simple answer...Yes . Their are alot of search providers out there who would love to be the Firefox default search engine. Yes I know that is just the tip of the iceberg ......there are many other implications involved. The good news is google has agreed to fund the Mozilla Project for an additional 3 years. So even if not I really don't think Mozilla has anything to worry about. As a matter of fact they appear to be all for Googles move.

The beta version should be available late today or tomorrow.
