A version of Google's new Chrome browser will find itself onto the company's Android mobile platform, according to company co-founder Sergey Brin.
Android and Chrome were developed separately, but will probably be tied closer now that the first Android-powered handsets are just around the corner.
"Probably a subsequent version of Android is going to pick up a lot of the Chrome stack," Brin said in an interview with Cnet Tuesday.
The search company unveiled Chrome Tuesday to much fanfare as the company claims the open-source browser is the fastest out there.
While features like multiple sandboxed processes would probably not make the cut on a cell phone, a mobile version would probably be built on the same fundamental technologies. Being able to easily and efficiently integrate with Web apps could give Android an advantage in the increasingly competitive mobile browser market.
As mobile users increasingly surf the Web from a handset, they will expect a higher level of sophistication and usability, according to ABI Research. Unlike on the desktop where Microsoft's Internet Explorer is the dominant market leader, the mobile browsing space is very fragmented.
But there will be some challenges, as a mobile version of Chrome is potentially competing with Apple's WebKit-based mobile Safari, Window's Internet Explorer Mobile, Nokia's Series 60 browser, and Research In Motion's BlackBerry browser.
Additionally, third party mobile browsers from the likes of Mozilla, Opera, and SkyFire have been gaining traction with consumers.
