Browser battle? They're more alike than different
A panel discussion among browser executives shed a little light on the philosophical differences between four major browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera), but more than anything showed how these products are moving in the same direction.
Responding to an audience question at the end of the panel, the browser reps set their products apart from the others this way:
Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera: "Our claim to fame is that we can make a Web browser run on anything." He was referring to the numerous mobile and game platforms that Opera runs on.
Sundar Pichai, VP Product Management, Google: "Speed. We only have so many seconds before we die."
