Its been quite sometime now that Google has kept impressing me with their innovative stuff. The latest addition being the Chrome. Microsoft takes a beat by Google for the fact that their innovativeness is simply not at par with Google’s. Their Live Services, specially the Windows Live Writer (which now helps me blog a lot more easily than before) has been really cool off late though. But that’s it. Google, amazingly, seems to know the exact requirement, starting from an average user to a techie. The Google Desktop Search, Picasa, Blogger, YouTube, Orkut and of course, Gmail and Gtalk…not to forget the Google Search engine….the list of the incredibles that has overtaken me. The extreme ease of use, the attractive yet simple interface clearly gives them an edge over the rest.
One more factor I find that contributes majorly to the success of Google is the speed of their applications. It might seem that “we may be slower, but we’re better in functionalities” strategy of some companies are taking a backseat now. Because Google is even filling its apps with as much functionalities with as much efficiency in starting up and getting their apps ready for use. Why would people switch to other apps when they get so many functionalities integrated in a fast easy-to-use application. No wonder why Gmail is the next best email service provider, probably going to be the best in near future, surpassing Yahoo! Mail. Recently after integrating video chat silently in Gmail, they seemed to have made the final breakthrough into the champions field. The simplicity yet full-of-features applications are what makes Google a great favorite to me. Am happy to have myself surrounded by some of such cool Google products am not yet thinking of switching to any other in near future too… Long live Google !!!
