Google is such a bad company. People should discontinue use of all their software and at the very least stop using chrome or chromium. They’ve got the internet by the balls.

I still remember old days, when most coders used to praise google. Their services were amazing and I think one of their old principle was >"Develop good products first, think about monetisation later"

I wish google was as good at procrastinating as I am.

Their old principle was ‘don’t be evil’. The fact they no longer say that tells you everything

Somewhere, sometime, there was a meeting at Google where they decided that value would be dropped.

Google sucks for sure, but I keep seeing this claim that they've removed "don't be evil" from their code of conduct.

It's still there, it's just no longer the main motto and has been moved from the preface to the conclusion.

You can read it yourself; "don't be evil" is literally in the last sentence verbatim, lol: https://abc.xyz/investor/google-code-of-conduct/
