Google new Microsoft?

Google’s been getting really big in the past few years. It wasn’t so long ago that it was just a small start-up only a handful of geeks had ever heard about and now it seems that each time people say Internet they imply Google and vice versa. There’s iGoogle, google mail, google docs, sundry other online services, they’ve now got their own browser, they’ve released an operating system for mobile devices(android) and are now on the verge of rolling out a new OS for PC’s (Chrome). Now is Google turning into a new Microsoft, the Microsoft of the twenty first century. After all, the old Microsoft has essentially missed the Internet bandwagon, their IE web browser is losing popularity, the new online services they offer, such as the recently unveiled Bing search engine, are mostly being ignored by the general internet crowd, their .net and asp technologies have failed to gain a sizable market share, most of the internet today runs on LAMP, not asp .net.
So what do you think is going to happen to Google? So far most people have had a fairly positive attitude towards it. They’ve done a number of very cool things, like Google Earth. But there was a time in the 1980’s and the early 1990’s when people generally tended to like Microsoft. Does this mean that as the monopolization of the Internet by Google continues to increase, people are going to start hating it too eventually, the same way they now kind of tend to hate Microsoft.
