Another Giant wants a piece of the web building biz.
Looks like Google is aiming to become the go-to place for creating Web sites too. Last year, Google acquired a Silicon Valley startup, JotSpot, which has many web site tools.

This is perhaps why Microsoft is trying to buy Yahoo for $40B but the deal did not go through, at least not yet.

Sounds like Google may have a more convenient edge here.
