Default Mozilla isn't a charity case - and Google's $300m will do nicely

Interesting read.

Google engineer Peter Kasting insists that viewing Chrome and Firefox as bitter enemies is silly:

Quote:
People never seem to understand why Google builds Chrome no matter how many times I try to pound it into their heads. It's very simple: the primary goal of Chrome is to make the web advance as much and as quickly as possible. It's completely irrelevant to this goal whether Chrome actually gains tons of users or whether instead the web advances because the other browser vendors step up their game and produce far better browsers. Either way the web gets better. Job done.
Might be irrelevant to the goal whether Chrome actually gains tons of users or not, but if Chrome kept gaining and the others kept losing market share, wouldn't an IE6 situation occur? Hmmmm....
