Gbrowser? Firefox?

[Media Source*]

(Reuters) It looks like Google has recently hired Blake Ross (designer of Fire Fox) as part of it's software team. Although Google has repeatably said that it is not planning to develop a browser, their recent hiring of the "Mozilla Man" sparks some rumors.

Firefox, the free Internet browser that 19-year-old Blake Ross helped create two years ago, has been downloaded more than 19 million times.

Although I do not personally like Firefox it does have some advantages over IE, mainly the uploading speed, pop-up blocker (built in) and many hackers haven't written too many viruses to it. And it is getting more popular around the net.
The Firefox browser has been downloaded more than 20 million times and currently has a market share of at least 5 percent, according to industry estimates -- a figure that is likely to increase if leveraged with the Google brand name.

One has to wonder where Google is going with this though. Google's market has expanded well beyond it's "internet search engine" and now has several other features to add (such as Gmail, Orkut, Blogger and Hello). One thing is for sure though. If Google goes Firefox, this could be the end of the Gates empire. Selah!
