Google Deking the Press on Browser Plans?

eWeek is among many that have published articles today based on Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s statement about a possible Google browser.

“It looks like people have some good browsers choices already,” Schmidt said. “We would not build a browser for the fun of building a browser,” he said.

Pretty much everyone took the comment to mean, “no Google browser”, but I’ve been listening to Google long enough to know that they always leave the door open. While Google wouldn’t build a browser for the “fun of building a browser”, building it to make some cold, hard cash, is a pretty good reason.

The Carolina Hurricanes are in game 7 tonight – and with that much hockey, you quickly learn that deking is an important part of any strategy. ;-)
