Google is a company that originally had the idea in mind to make a web the people would like (correct me on that fact I got it from a biased news source) However the modern Google has become a mess through cookies, trackers, economy. Let me explain
Trackers, Cookie, Spyware
Google is a company that does not worship the privacy of its customers. For example, say you search up something super embarrassing multiple times, like Madonna or WiiMiiSwitch polls. Since you searched it multiple times, Google will log (save) that search and sell the data to advertising companies! Are you comfortable selling your web history to advertising companies?! I'm not for sure. Since they have many services they see what you do there too. This includes but is not limited to Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Blogger, and many other websites THEY PAY to sell your data. It's worse if you use Google Chrome since they HAVE YOUR HISTORY, however, unlike chromium, it adds trackers that are hard to find since Chrome isn't open source. It's horrible, it's hard to avoid since Google basically owns the "web" but we'll get back to that later
The Google Eco System
It's no doubt that you use Google Services (even at a bare minimum). However, these "services" do not worship the user. How? Simple, for example, you use Google Classroom which is a service for the students, they will give ADS TO YOU BECAUSE YOU USE GOOGLE CLASSROOM. Or let's use a better example. You watch YouTube videos on Vaccum Reviews. You get YouTube ads on vacuums since you looked at vacuums. Then you get those ads on Google since they SPIED ON YOU, then you get those vacuum ads on GMAIL. Then since many sites use Google Ads you get Vacumms there since THEY SPREAD YOUR DATA TO COMPANIES. That's why we have these services like Google Slides which seems unprofitable.
Google Is The Web, Or is It?
Some time ago, I was using Firefox and someone said "Why are you using that, no one uses that!" Why, because back in 2009 Google Chrome was better. People don't realize there are other useable web
browsers that are faster and better because of past slow browsers. Like Internet Explorer, for example, no one uses Edge because they still think Edge freezes like IE. Since Google Chrome was decent in like 2009 people are going to keep using it instead of looking for faster browsers or relooking old ones. People just think Google is the best, unaware of the trackers and the other shit they give you
Is it too late?
No, lots of browsers care about privacy and are much more faster and privacy based then Chrome
