Google is a global technology leader whose mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our innovations in web search, web applications, and advertising have improved the way people connect and share information worldwide. As a company, we continue to pursue a strategic vision first announced in 2007: search, ads, and apps. We launched Google Chrome, an entirely open-source browser designed to make browsing faster, safer and more reliable, and we released the open-source Android mobile phone operating system.
We have also made many improvements to our existing products, including refining our search results, launching Moon and Ocean on Google Earth, and adding voice and video chat capacity to Gmail. We also believe that ads are a valuable source of information, one that can connect people to the advertisers offering products and services that interest them.
