The U.S. government is taking Google to court in a 10-week antitrust trial, challenging the search engine giant’s dominance. The trial, the largest antitrust case since Microsoft, is expected to include testimony from top executives at Google and Alphabet. The government argues that Google’s search engine has become an essential service and that the company has abused its power to stifle competition. Critics claim that Google’s search results have deteriorated as the company prioritizes its own products and ads. The trial could result in concessions that weaken Google’s power or distract the company, similar to what happened to Microsoft after its antitrust battle.
