According to an article at CNN Money today, Google has apparently alluded to the fact that it will not be writing its own Web browser from scratch:

...Google would not comment on reports that it was thinking of launching a Web browser to rival Microsoft's Internet Explorer. On Monday, however, a Google spokesman did weigh in, saying that Google was not planning to "reinvent the wheel" when it comes to browsing technology.

If this statement holds true, it still begs the question what browser and/or rendering engine will they use? Some have speculated that one of the Mozilla browsers might be their choice, but this leads me to wonder why Google has hired at least 4 former IE developers as of late.

Only time will tell...
