  Google to enter Browser Market?
Technology News Article | Reuters.com: "LONDON (Reuters) - Web search company Google has hired the lead engineer of the Firefox Web browser, fueling speculation that Google will create its own version of Firefox to take on Microsoft's dominant Internet Explorer.

Ben Goodger said in a note on his Web site -- http:/weblogs.mozillazine.org/ben/ -- that he would continue to work on Firefox, a free browser that has gained a popular following due to additional features and fewer attacks from malicious hackers than Internet Explorer.

Internet cognoscenti have speculated about a Google browser since the company registered the Gbrowser.com domain and hired several Internet Explorer engineers last year.

A Google spokeswoman in London declined to say whether the company had a browser in the works."
