You are BY DEFINITION engaging in a fight you CAN NOT WIN.
My previous 'subtle' attempts with #GoogleIsEvil apparently weren't clear enough, so here's another try:

@FreePietje There's a reason people want to use chromium though, and it's because there's no good alternatives. In all honesty, as a longtime firefox fan, it just outright sucks for more js-heavy applications.

The web is already practically controlled by G👀gle, via their dominance at W3C and with search causing websites to adhere to their whims.
Do you think it'll get better when they 100% control the web?
When there are no consequences to bad behavior, why change?
