Viewsays Google wasted a decade on cloud software

Google announced Chrome OS, the operating system running web applications, in 2009, which once surprised many that Chrome OS would be the most popular desktop operating system over a decade, and that it would be free.

Ten years ago, users were able to send and receive e-mail sms through Gmail, write documents in Docs, and make tables with Sheets, and these apps are good enough to go on to catch up with native apps such as MS Office.

Somehow, however, Google stopped the innovation of software in the cloud. Docs and Sheets haven’t changed much in a decade, and Google Drive is still hard to use. Even its search experience is not as good as it used to be.

Google, like Microsoft, which relied on IE 6 to dominate the browser market, has stalled and has not even bothered to update it after defeating rival Netscape.
