    The Mozilla angle is what keeps Mozilla corp running .. Google quietly funds its biggest competitor in the browser market .. :)

    Though at the end its all about dominance. Last year surveys showed Google controlled over 90% of the mobile search market.

    Also after Chrome became popular Google decided to pull its funding of Mozilla Corp which meant it could no longer continue to function .. but changed its mind and resumed funding.

    that would be counter productive, not to mention their popularity would go down severely in open source world.
    Chrome is anyway a freebie.
