Google's browser, the engine for the Cloud?

I don't know what Om is raving about, but Shankland too wrote a brave post about how he shifted to Chrome. I particularly like Firefox for all it does for me. I do fat things, I have heavy needs and I am not in need of something fast when I am pretty much content with the quality of content delivered to me.

So for all the cool extensions like ABP, IE plugin, Facebook, LinkedIn etc etc, I am not about to pick Chrome. Nice article but it really doesn't make any solid case for Google's Cloud readiness. They're good in search and have a lot of data indexed. That it.

A lot has changed in the past 10 years. For one thing, the cost of hardware and network infrastructure has declined sharply. Such a decline has led to what's known as cloud computing, whereby companies like Amazon.com (AMZN) offer infrastructure on demand. That has, in turn, allowed innovators to roll out their applications without making major outlays up front.

In the meantime, always-on broadband connections at home, work, and on the move have become commonplace. This has served as a catalyst for those who have developed Web services that are now screaming for browsers that allow your data to live on the Web but be accessible offline, a trend I first wrote about in a column for the now defunct Business 2.0 magazine back in March 2006.
