Google CEO Eric Schmidt on Wednesday said that his company is unlikely to create its own Web browser. Schmidt said Google sees little need to develop its own browser because most people seem satisfied with Explorer and others such as Firefox, Safari and Opera.

They are missing a HUGE opportunity, and Yahoo are too! If I had to choose between a vanilla Firefox broswer, or a #*$!ed up Yahoo or Google Firefox browser, I'd choose the later. Integrated toolbar, branded skin, automatically logs you in.... One cannot doubt that Firefox would agree to such a thing, and the promotion they could give it from their homepages is immense. Almost every single person that uses the internet uses a browser, and it makes no sense for these two companies not to take this route.
