What is Google Playing At?
Google Taking on Microsoft et al
After launching a new web browser called Google Chrome, Google is also giving away a free Google Pack which contains at least a dozen free applications.
It is widely believed that Microsoft control 60% of the browser market with Internet Explorer, while Mozilla Firefox controls 20 % and the others like Safari, Opera Maxthon, share the rest.
By launching the Chrome browser, Google is taking Microsoft heads on. According to a BBC journalist, Microsoft are unlikely to be worried, mainly because of their dorminant market position. But for how long? Come to think of it with the amount of free software packed into Google pack, and the features of Google Chrome, many user are likely to be tempted to accept these free offers!
