Such a load of stubborn braying from Companies like Google over these issues...

All MS had to do over the IE issue years ago and all Google really had to do was provide uninstalls that worked to remove bits the users might not want.

Bundling when you are the underdog, nobody cares, but once you are dominant, you can afford to, as long as you don't fuck up your position with dumb ui changes (Hi, Microsoft) most users are going to leave it on anyway, or even run the install if required as long as it's made easy peasy.
