Firefox_1GoogleI have speculated about a rumored Google browser for months along with many other people who think it would be a natural fit for the search engine giant.  Apparently Google must think so too as they have hired the top programmer of Firefox.  Ben Goodger is the lead engineer for Mozilla Firefox and he announced on his blog that he has joined Google, but that his work on FIrefox will continue.

As of January 10, 2005, my source of income changed from The Mozilla Foundation to Google, Inc. of Mountain View, California. My role with Firefox and the Mozilla project will remain largely unchanged, I will continue doing much the same work as I have described above – with the new goal of successful 1.1, 1.5 and 2.0 releases. I remain devoted full-time to the advancement of Firefox, the Mozilla platform and web browsing in general. I’m sure you have many questions. While I will be spending more time at Google, I will work out of the Mozilla Foundation offices regularly as the need arises. For all questions regarding Google, I ask that you contact Google directly, rather than myself.

Still have any doubt?
