Google Invests In Chinese Browser

By: Andy Beal

Someone needs to keep track of TechCrunchs success-rate with their rumor-mill postings (which I am sure is high).

Arrington is at it again, with multiple sources telling him that Google has invested $1 million into Maxthon Browser a startup that offers a browser popular among users in China.

    "Maxthon has had over 80 million downloads of its browser, and over half of its users are in China. Maxthon-originated searches may account for up to 25% of total Baidu traffic, according to one source."
Well wait and see how far this relationship develops. Obviously Google has plans to change the browsers default search engine option from Baidu to Google, but they probably could have worked out that deal, without actually investing in the company.

Anyone familiar with Maxthon? Maybe they have some other technology that Google finds interesting.
