the wrong analysis about
Look out Microsoft (MSFT), Google (GOOG) is getting into the browser business.

"Look out Mozilla Foundation" is more like it. How much of their funding comes from
Google search kickbacks? Google spends a lot of cash to own search in browsers; this has
the potential to reduce those costs significantly.
Google and Mozilla (Corp, not Foundation - stupid tax implications) just renewed their contract for 3 more years.
So, while Chrome might be new, many of its ideas and implementations aren't; it'll definitely be interesting to see what it shapes up to be and how it impacts the browser market.
I agree with that. It could and will impact Microsoft, but I see it having a greater affect in fragmenting the "second-place browser" market. Firefox has a lot more to lose to Google initially. If Firefox can keep up by incorporating some of the technological leaps made by Chrome, great, but they're going to have a lot of work to do the closer Google gets to Chrome 1.0 final.
