SUNNYVALE, Calif.--Google just announced its Chrome Web browser, but Yahoo co-founder David Filo doesn't expect his company will follow suit.
"I don't think you're going to see a browser from us," Filo said in an interview Thursday at the company's headquarters here.
Rather, the company is focusing its attention on improving its current products, for example by opening up the Yahoo home page, the My Yahoo customized start page, Yahoo Mail, and search to others' applications, Filo said. Those are examples of what's enabled by the Yahoo Open Strategy, which the company will tout more aggressively during its second Open Hack Day 2008 on Friday and Saturday.
"We're getting to the point where everything we do is a completely open platform," he said.
"They've been trying a lot of things, most of which won't go anywhere," Filo said. "This is another thing they're throwing against the wall."
