I find the person's use of "googling" amateurish, and your use of “browsing tools” more sophisticated for a resume. That being said, frequency of use does not equate to professional capacity, although many would argue against that.
Just because you are good at finding answers for your profession doesn't mean you'd be a good overall researcher. Different industries provide different challenges. It can be in the availability of information (i.e. some industries require subscriptions to have access to specific articles that are peer-reviewed). Other industries have outdated web design, making websites difficult to navigate and redundant.
In conclusion, being a good overall online researcher is a skill very scarce in the world and whoever can claim proficiency in it, deserves all the "expert clout". They are far superior in skill than the average Joe "googler" or the hyper-specialized professional.
