i wish fewer people used chrome. the google monopoly is so bad

i don't get how this happened. it's not even like, wildly good. it's far more a memory hog than i've ever seen firefox be. and after a hundred releases or something it still can't even handle having more than a few tabs open

@eevee

same reason internet explorer dominated the market before chrome: it comes preinstalled on 99% of computers. the computers are just phones now

@gutmunchies even on big boy computers chrome is utterly dominating

ok yeah i got nothing for that. maybe just brand recognition?? everybody uses google so google is obviously good, right

@gutmunchies @eevee Here's my explanation: All browsers set Google as their search engine & often homepage.

Google searchresults and homepage (at least used to) include a prominant ad for chrome.

A large enough quantity of users did as the ad requested to kickstart this deathspiral!
