GreenBorder is an application used to protect computers when accessing the Internet. Picture your computer protected in a bubble as you surf the Web keeping you protected from downloading malicious code or viruses and such. That’s what GreenBorder does.
I recently found out that they’ve stopped selling their product, but it’s not because they’re going down the tubes. Instead, the news is good for you, me, and families everywhere. They’ve been purchased by Google! Their site has this to say:
GreenBorder Technologies, Inc. has been acquired by Google, Inc. We will continue to support our existing customers through the end of their current subscriptions.
And in case you haven’t heard, there have been rumors (and only rumors) for some time about Google creating its own browser. Perhaps things are moving in that direction with this recent acquisition. But even if it doesn’t, my hope is that they’ll offer GreenBorder (GoogleBorder?) as a free download given their efforts to make things publicly available.
I’ll be keeping an eye on this.
