There's a lot of difference. Microsoft has always tried to undermine
standards because standards give its competitors a more level-playing
field, which is what Google needs for its webapps to compete with
Microsoft's desktop applications. I don't see how that's bad for
anyone except Microsoft.

So you mean that google is learning from the Microsoft mistakes. Or maybe google need to get along with the standards for now, but as soon as they have secured the market they will define the standards as they need it to be for their
benefit.
