I don't know, I have more trouble with Safari and Edge than 
Chrome and Firefox.

Google's main domain is advertising, same with Facebook. Software 
is just a way to keep competition away and collecting information 
about users.

The Internet is getting very 1984ish, but this goes way beyond 
Google, which I find to be better than average. Have you noticed 
how you receive advertising all over the Internet for the same 
product you looked at a few days before in a webshop and how 
Facebook and Linked In lists suggestions based on people you have 
only had peripheral interaction with? Extremely annoying. It 
makes me rank those companies as shady.

At some point there will be a resistance movement, forking one of 
the main browsers and building in collaborative blacklisting etc. 
Unfortunately, non-tech people are quite oblivious to what is 
going on. Maybe the new collaborative website annotation 
standards will turn into something. Firefox could take a lead
