No, but I was hoping that at least /some/ of Google's influence on its
competition would become prominent.

I thought about Yahoo when I wrote this. I also thought about google.com/im
and start.com although I am told that start.com predates all. I needed a
third point, so I picked up a very weak one. *smile*

> Interactive maps?  You mean like Yahoo maps or something else?

I think that Google were the first ones to use AJAX. All the other mapping
services were far less responsive. Google accumulated many engineers that
are well-orientated in cutting-edge Web technologies and that's why they
took the lead in that domain.
