The war starts again, now with an extra battalion by the name of Google Chrome. With Firefox eating in to the shares of IE, Opera and Flock gaining popularity and with Safari's presence felt, the war is only going to heat up. Microsoft is already pushing IE8 as a safe and standards compliant browser. Firefox3 has set a new bench mark as a secure browser. Success for the new generation browsers will firstly depend on the security they provide against malware and phising sites, then secondly on the customization capabilities. Promises look good but wait till tomorrow.
