Google launches new browser

02/09/2008

Google celebrated its ten year anniversary this month with the beta launch of a new browser in 100 countries, writes Brand Republic. Google Chrome will be competing with Microsoft's dominant Internet Explorer (which claims 72% of installed browsers) and Firefox (with 20% of the market). The browser is open source and designed to be fast and designed for rich media. Mac and Linux versions are still to come.

The firm had other cause for celebration with the news that it had joined Interbrand's top ten list of the most valuable global brands. The survey put the firms brand value up 43% at $25.59bn (£14.57bn), from last year's figure of $17.8bn (£10.18bn).
