I can’t even load the recommended view for Gmail over here.
But if this is happening to Chrome as well, I can only wonder if they are trending to where they come out with a shiny new platform, then they haphazardly pile on features to the point where the code is bloated and unmaintainable.
If this also ends up happening to Android, then Google would be in a situation where they not only gave the browser and email market to competitors, but also give the smartphone market to iOS and Windows 8.
So all in all, Google could be slowly working its way towards a very precarious point due to their attempts at staying ahead of their competitors, even their recommended search feature will at times completely fail to take into account the characters I type after the first few letters. (in which I hope their search won’t become the same way O.o)
