Scoop! Is this a sighting of the Google browser?

By Nick Aster for SiliconValleyWatcher


Speculation has swirled for months that Google was working on a browser. The company has hired browser engineers from Microsoft and Firefox. The BBC reported last year that the search giant owns the domain name gbrowser.com. None of that ultimately proves anything, though.


Checking out SiliconValleyWatcher's browser stats this morning, however, I noticed that, oddly, a few visitors are using a browser identified as "Google 0.X".

We know our readers are on the cutting edge, but this is too cool. Drum roll please? Is anyone else seeing this in their logs?
