C|net is reporting that Google board member and VC extraordinaire John Doerr said Google won’t offer its own browser, contrary to recent speculation. Of course, Doerr also remarked that “that just because he was on the board of Google didn’t necessarily mean he knew what they were doing.”
Doerr does, however, believe the browser market — and the web in general — is set to hot up again:
Doerr said that he believed that many services of the first iteration of the Web were being reinvented now, much in the way Google reinvented search while many other Internet portals abandoned search R&D in the late 1990s. “Most of the old Web-based services are in the process of being systemized reinvented, even the browser,” he said.
