Why Do We Need A Google Browser?
JR Conlin's Ink-Stained Banana says "the latest buzz about a Google Browser makes me giggle". He says we son't need a Google Browser, especially a Firefox-based one, and that other companies have tried and failed at making branded versions of browsers. Of course, he's absolutely right. A Google-branded browser is as dumb an idea as I can think of, and would ruin Google's reputation for innovation. The only was Google can release a browser, especially one they didn't even build, is if the browser has some major innovations. Convergence of Google products won't be enough. If GBrowser doesn't bring a killer app right out of the box, it will only hurt Google, not help it.
