Can Google Win The Browser Wars With Google Chrome?

I am sure many, if not all, of you have heard the news about Google Chrome, Google's open source web browser that is launching today. Techmeme is plastered with blog posts on the topic, it is seriously amazing! In any event, Google accidently sent out the email notification about this new browser they are beta testing to Google Blogoscoped. Google Blogoscoped posted the details based on the email from Google and then the news got going. Google quickly posted the explanation about it and said, to check back tomorrow (which is today) for how you can download the Windows based beta browser. Again, there are hundreds of articles on Techmeme on the story and many of these sites have videos, screen shots and opinions on the new browser.

I won't go through it all, you can read the information from the links above. Oh, for kicks, you can check out my old old post named The Google Browser from 2004.

We know Microsoft has been trying to stomp on Google's web search turf and has, so far, been unsuccessful. We know that Microsoft successfully beat Netscape in the browser wars. We know that Mozilla, with Google's help, has been gaining share in the browser market share game. Now, with Google developing their own browser, do you think Google can win the browser wars? Do you think Google can dominate IE and Firefox? Here is a poll:

Personally, I think it will be hard for Google to beat Microsoft in this space. I do think that Mozilla has a lot to worry about, as do the other browser companies like Opera. Safari, should be somewhat safe, just like I think Internet Explorer is somewhat safe. Why? They come preinstalled. Of course, Google can make deals with Dell and other manufacturers, like they have done with Google desktop, search applications and more.
