Not only did Google announce Chrome (its new browser that’s making a splash all over TechMeme) with a comic book but there’s a bit more funny history as well.
Several years ago Microsoft had a project code-named Chrome. It was supposed to be a multimedia browser. The project was killed a few weeks away from shipping.
But, more seriously, and not so humorous: I wonder what will happen to funding for Mozilla’s Firefox now that Google is headed into the browser business?
UPDATE: John Lilly, CEO of Mozilla, left a comment in this post saying that this won’t affect Mozilla. He also was interviewed by Om Malik where he said Mozilla isn’t worried.
