Yahoo Inc., owner of the most-visited Web site, may consider developing its own Internet browser to help attract more users and advertisers toits Web sites, Chief Executive Officer Terry Semel said.
“You could look to Yahoo to do most everything that makes sense on the Internet going forward,” Semel said Friday in an interview in New York. Developing a browser may make sense “at some point in time,” he said.
Yahoo has been hot on new service developments lately and a Yahoo browser would really top it off. I can’t imagine it would be anything other than a version of Firefox though. I’ll certainly be watching Yahoo Next. By the way, I noticed they’ve added a RSS feed to the Yahoo Next page. Cool.
That’s fine, but does not address the “futuristic” comments by Terry Semel reported in the Bloomberg article: “Developing a browser may make sense “at some point in time”. Perhaps he was just misquoted? Regardless, this is going to get some play this week.
