Google Mozilla

No GBrowser

According to this article Google doesn’t intend to make a web browser:

“We would not build a browser just for the fun of building a browser,” [Eric] Schmidt said.

At least he admits building a browser is fun!


Gbrowser Redux

An interesting post on an allegedly new Googlebot. I’ve got no clue about the truth or accuracy of it, but the article thinks Googlebot is no longer a lynx like browser, but based on Mozilla. It would make sense, so Google can take better advantage of things like CSS, JavaScript. Perhaps it’s using <canvas/> to create screenshots for thumbnails?

Again, no clue regarding accuracy, but it’s an interesting read.
