Google to Collect Them All?

By on September 7, 2005

Google just hired Mike Pinkerton, the brainfather of Camino. He will join Firefox Big Dogs Ben Goodger and Darin Fisher, among others.

So the biggest search engine is putting a lot of horsepower behind the most popular browser (at least the most popular one not owned by a competitor).

This trend gives a lot of credibility to the ‘Google WebOS’ rumors, in my book. How long before we see Gmail and GTalk frontends that look like client apps but run like web pages, written in XUL? It’s not far to ‘WebOS’ from there.
