Sergey Brin, Google co-founder

For those of you unaware, Google released its own web browser yesterday on the unsuspecting masses. It’s called Chrome, and can currently be had for Windows users by going to the Google Chrome website. While I’m not personally too impressed by its spartan user interface and bookmark management, it has some good features in it and is based on the same WebKit system that Apple’s Safari and Nokia’s S60 browser are built upon.

So it isn’t all that surprising that yesterday at a Chrome launch event Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin said that he expects to see Chrome running on Android smartphones in the future. The current Android browser is already based on the WebKit rendering engine, and the Chrome developers used it as the basis for their project largely based on recommendations from the Android guys.
