Google - the OS

14 Apr 2004

I came across this interesting blog entry on The Secret Source of Google's Power. It talks about how Google has 100,000 servers! It also talks about how Google could become a 'platform' for the future. Fascinating stuff!

I saw that article. Fascinating? yeah..but realistic?..nope. It's all too overblown. Just like Netscape's wild dreams of taking over the desktop.

I feel that the plain old model of a simple browser to explore the Net will gradually fade away..

The browser, as we know it now, is doomed.
