Google has an ad banner in their search home page for their Chrome browser. Can it eventually change the course of the browser wars? And what can happen if it does?
Google’s search home page has stayed clean forever, with no clutter or advertising banners of any kind. They broke their self-imposed rule to promote their browser, using their most powerful nuke—the most popular home page in the world—in an effort to change the course of the Browser War. Who knows, maybe this is the first step towards victory, even if it would be a long way till they catch up with Firefox and Explorer (they already beat Safari).
