Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A war between two of the major conglomerates will always have casualties, and unfortunately for us, this time we are the casualties. We aren't yet at a state where it is impossible to use Google services on Microsoft platforms, but we are moving towards a stricter ecosystem world where we might see Googlers/Gmail users on one side and Bingers/Outlook users on the other. We can only hope for the sake of technologies future and for the sake of innovation that the two companies can learn to work together in an ever expanding world of data." We can hope so, but we're talking large companies, and large companies do not care about users. Never have, never will.

Start WIndows 8. Install Chrome. "Oh look, now I have access to all my Google services!" Problem solved.

Chrome is basically Android on the PC with sync on the fly. What I like in Google services (although I don't use them every day, or even every week, but like them) is that one app, Chrome browser, gives you everything on Windows/Mac/Linux machine. And I can be logged in all my Google stuff on Chrome, while I'm more or less anonymous with Firefox.

It's very good thing to have second browser for "Google's internet" and Chrome is ideal for it.
