On Tuesday, Google and Dell said that they are currently running tests on a preinstalled package of Google software on Dell computers, Reuters reports.

Bob Kaufman, a Dell spokesperson, told Reuters that the Google software is currently being evaluated by Dell.  The software would allow users to search for information on the Web and on a PC.

“We can confirm that we are running a test with Google that could include a Google-powered Dell home page, Google desktop search and a Google toolbar,” Kaufman told Reuters.

The software package would surely challenge Microsoft’s desktop software market dominance.

Google already maintains partnerships with other PC makers like Hewlett-Packard, Gateway, Sony and Apple, Reuters reports.
