Google preparing to ‘starve’ Firefox out of existence?

This is strictly under the heading of Geek news, but the politics are interesting too. It seems that since the launch of its strangely seductive (but annoyingly intolerant) Chrome browser, Google is now preparing to cut off the ‘non profit”s ad revenues from referrals through its Google toolbar… Who knew the economics of open source were so volatile? Sounds like some Firefox engineers are preparing to jump inside Google’s high walled garden… So, don’t be evil (until you ‘rule the world’, that is)…
