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.

Google are getting pretty scary these days. Apart from logging searches to IP address, connecting Google Mail accounts with other Google services (search engine/Groups/etc), scanning your email to insure you get the right kind of advertising, changing the T&Cs of Google Talk so that it logs all your conversations (although there seems to be an opt out) and perhaps other things we might not be aware of, I wonder how much information they're going to be logging from everyone's computer activities by having their toolbars everywhere?
