2001: Microsoft be like, "Well SORRRRRY for having a supposed monopoly on internet browsers. Do what you like. Sheesh."
2020: Google be like, "Use whatever browser you like because 99.6% of browsers are based on our Chromium code. Even Microsoft's browser. All your data is ours and there's fuck all you can do about it."
@sikkdays In both cases, web developers are entirely to blame with a "fuck standards, just use IE" attitude that ultimately carried over to Chrome on a long enough timeline.
