Google in war with Microsoft with launch of Chrome

Google launched “Chrome” the first web browser and challeged microsoft. OOhh.. its only 3 months gone after firefox 3 realease. This time, Microsoft’s opponent is Google, a familiar foe. So, The war is Between IE8 and Chrome. And who will win? Lets See.. Google already competes with Microsoft in online search and Internet advertising.

“The browser landscape is highly competitive,” said Dean Hachamovitch, general manager of the Internet Explorer group. “But people will choose Internet Explorer 8 for the way it puts the services they want right at their fingertips, respects their personal choices about how they want to browse and, more than any other browsing technology, puts them in control of their personal data online.”

Just two week ago Google renewed its deal with Mozilla through to November 2011 whereby they pay around US$85 million annually to Mozilla to make Google Search the default home page and search bar.

But. ten days after launched Chrome, the percentage of readers using it to reach “Computerworld’s” Web site has dropped from a peak of 9.7% right after the browser was released and stabilized at between 5% and 6%.

So, Lets watch the war…
