Let the Browser wars Begin.


Since last year Google has been aquiring programers to integrate its search technology and develop Firefox

as an alternative to Microsoft.


In January, Google Inc. hired the lead engineer behind the Mozilla Firefox Web browser, who splits his time between the search company and the open-source project.


Ben Goodger, who helped shepherd the Firefox 1.0 release that has dug into Microsoft Corp.'s browser dominance, joined Google as a full-time employee earlier this month. While Goodger is a full-time Google employee, Google also is donating half of his time back to the Mozilla Foundation, Google spokesman Steve Langdon said.

If you have not gotten firefox then you should if you already have it but not the new version has some great add extentions for those of you still on ie extentions are tools that have been developed that makes firefox unsurpassed in browsers. Like the ability to right click on a link and have google go and get images that are associated on the hyperlink site let alone a quick picture of what that site looks like, plus the ability to block scrips from running. And On and On the beat goes on. http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
