Err -- so sending people to Google by default is fine, the problem is that if they're going to do this (and really, they sort of have to for UI reasons), they should tell Google to spend that $70 million on closed source stuff in-house instead?
I definitely keep a wary eye on Google and friends, and find it annoying that I have to install AdBlock myself. But what I get in return is hundreds of people working full-time to build me a better browser and fight for an open web. I agree that people should be aware of what's going on, but I contend that it's entirely possible to understand the situation and still support it.
