Re: Google doing this might actually HELP Chrome dominate
I've watched many large sites rise and suddenly fall, as if they're on the Simpson's escalator to nowhere.
I've seen the same for software, with browsers for example. Not too long back Chrome as unknown and another had an unassailable lead. But that browser fell out of favour, and Chrome swallowed up the ground seemingly overnight.
When people get sick of very annoying ads and not being able to manage other content in a convenient fashion, Chrome will no longer be convenient to use. Others are waiting in the wings, watching the mistakes of the big leaders and biding their time. Customer laziness only protects you for so long.
