Google Chrome Ad on YouTube

By | November 1, 2008 | 1 Comment

Just noticed this one. I wonder if it’s really worth to promote a not fully working product (beta), once you click on a link, it opens new page where you can download it (says nothing about a “beta” status).

Was a final version released some time ago and I missed it?

It’s not a real alternative to Google Toolbar, but author is working on new version (although the previous version was released on Jun 15, 2006) which will include better UI configuration, more publisher tools for blogger and more.

Opera, Google DealGoogle is default search engine integrated to the Opera desktop browser and will stay there for at least 2 years (that’s then this deal expires) or more.

That means profit for both, Google and Opera.

Google pays ~80% (77% in Q3) of each click value to its publishers. Not really sure about Opera, but that should be more than 80% I guess.

Google Browser, How Soon?

By | August 15, 2007 | 0 Comments

Seems Google wants to dominate everywhere and might join web browser wars someday.

There always been some rumors, but there is something going on for sure. Here are some facts:

Chris Silver Smith pointed that Google already registered GBrowser.com domain.

Ryan Naraine reported that Google hired a browser hacking guru.

They also have some deals with Firefox already and not so long time ago (April 2007) Michael Arrington wrote:

Maxthon Browser has sold a minority stake to Google. The total investment size is rumored to be around $1 million.

So… How soon and what can we expect from it?
