What makes the creation of Google a historically significant moment in the history of technology? To answer that question, we have to look at three main aspects How notable was it at the time, How widespread and lasting the consequences were and How symbolic it is. Before I delve specifically into each of these categories I would like to give a cliff notes version of why I picked to write about google. I picked google because not only did it revolutionize how browsers function but it succeeded so well that it is known by pretty close to everybody on earth.
Now that that’s out of the way let’s get on with this. The first and in my opinion most important category how widespread and long-lasting the consequences were. This category is the most important since it is where google shines the most. I say that because Google is practically unavoidable be it the fact it’s installed on almost every device in some kinda way. Secondly, Google is so widespread it was added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary back in 2003.
The final two categories I will condense into one paragraph since I have less today about them. Firstly Google took a while to become a phenomenon not earning that status till 1999 but after that point, it has not fallen in popularity. Finally when it comes to how symbolic Google is you can’t get more symbolic Google is most likely the first thing people think of when they are asked to name an internet browser.
In conclusion, I think I have given a good introduction to why the creation of google was historically significant. Not only because it has taken over the entire internet browser market but it has become an alternative word to you should search it now it’s you should google it. So for all the things I have stated I believe that the founding of Google is historically significant.
