There has been lots of speculation over the past few months on Google creating the Google Browser, yesterday Ben Goodger, the lead engineer for Mozilla Firefox, has announced that he will be joining Google, Inc.. Of course, in his blog entry he doesn't disclose the nature of his job at Google.

For all questions regarding Google, I ask that you contact Google directly, rather than myself.

In a thread at WebmasterWorld Brett Tabke set the record straight, that we should not continue to speculate on a Google Browser. Brett said, "this is not the first browser guy Google has hired." He then lists three things that Google can use Ben for, instead of building a browser;

- The complete elimination of hidden text from *any* code based source.
- The interpretation of div's and css with 100% accuracy.
- Key word 'spamming' could all but be eliminated in all it's form.
