While I am feeling punchy this morning.
Remember how Microsoft was found to be anti-competitive because of their foisting IE on users?
Google does not support the open web.
@rtyler The best part of this is that, yeah, sure, they web technologies that only ship in Google-Chrome-based browsers that Google decided to require for Google Meet aren't, in fact, supported by non-Google-Chrome-based browsers! However, other projects with fewer resources than Google, like Jitsi, seem to support visual effects just fine.
So it definitely feels like a deliberate choice to rely on tech that competitors don't ship rather than supporting what works everywhere. :(
