"In what way? How are they a monopolist?"

You don't have to have 100% of the market to be a monopoly. Not according to almost every legal text. Google easily has more than 50% market share in a number of sectors, which is usually enough to be classed as a monopoly.

E.g., Microsoft is considered a monopolist for OSes, despite Linux/MacOS existing.
