Re: Getting out of the inferno

The problem with that is that Google essentially controls the game at this point. If someone creates a browser that starts impacting their revenue stream, they'll just simply leverage their market share and basically change the rules to favor themselves and there's little that can be done to stop them.

About the only thing that would prevent it is if google ended up getting carved up so the ad business was a completely unrelated and separate entity from the browser business. But I don't ever see that happening even if they do actually get brought up on monopoly charges.
