I don't see the moral equivalency at all. One company spend years hating on FOSS and open standards, the other is a friend to the movement. I for one welcome our Google overlords.
In addition, it's no secret that I personally respect and look to Google as the technical leader in our industry. I'm sorry if that frustrates some people who seem to have followed different paths, but it is the way it is.
So, you don't have a problem with a company that deliberately bypassed browser security to illegally harvest folks' private data?
