I’ve criticized many companies in the past for their “it’s not fair” attitude towards Google. From search engines to cable companies, it seems each week there is a new company complaining that Google is too dominant in the search space.
Well, that goes both ways.
Google needs to quit its whining over Microsoft’s plans to include a search box in the new Internet Explorer 7, with MSN Search set as the default.
“The market favors open choice for search, and companies should compete for users based on the quality of their search services,” said Marissa Mayer, the vice president for search products at Google. “We don’t think it’s right for Microsoft to just set the default to MSN. We believe users should choose.”
