Google's co-founder Sergey Brin has hinted that Android could use some elements of Google Chrome in the future.
The two were developed in very different projects, but given both were built using the same WebKit, fusion is unlikely to be very difficult.
"We have not wanted to bind one's hands to the other's," Brin said, according to CNET.
"Probably a subsequent version of Android is going to pick up a lot of the Chrome stack," he added.
WebKit is an open-source program that helps the device, be it PC or mobile, interpret HTML code for rendering on the given screen.

And the name of the service? "Probably a subsequent version of Android is going to pick up a lot of the Chrome stack," Brin commented.
