Google Fighting for icon space on the desktop is so 2001. The new frontier on a virgin PC is the browser, and Internet companies like Google are jostling for space on the browsers of new PCs. Dell and Google are evaluating a partnership in which the Google Toolbar, Google Desktop Search and a Google-designed Dell home page are included on new Dell PCs, a Dell representative confirmed.

Who knows, they may plan on doing this. Google has started promoting Firefox pretty heavily (through their adsense program, they will pay you a dollar for every person whom you manage to get to download Firefox + Google Toolbar). They also bundle Firefox with their toolbar as a part of Google Pack.

It wouldn't surprise me if this was part of the deal.
