Clues may point to Google browser

Evidence is growing that may support rumors that the preeminent search company plans to introduce a Google-branded Web browser down the road. Among the clues are a domain-name registration, a patent application and several recent hires.

Since the search star’s $1.66 billion public offering, investors and industry watchers have speculated about new products that could help contribute to the company’s next billion dollars in revenue or help broaden its lucrative advertising network.

A Web browser that would meld Google search, Gmail free e-mail, Google’s Blogger Web publishing software and pop-up blocking technology could be a prospective winner for the company in this respect, industry analysts say.

Backing this idea up, Google registered the Web address “gbrowser.com” on April 26, according to a record at the WhoIs domain-name database. Employees of the company have also recently filed a patent application for delivering ads to client-side applications, including a Web browser or browser plug-in.
