    And many others I miss. It’s a bit mind boggling how many things this corp has done. They have killed so many and there still so many yet, and many open source projects.

      As a heavy Docs user, I’m beginning to see lots of odd choices that they don’t seem interested in fixing that ultimately result in a somewhat broken product. For example, there are still loads of things that can only be done in Google docs for web, so on an Android device you are forced to try to get a browser to load Docs in desktop mode to make a handful of changes all while fighting the OS trying to move you over the native app that lacks the features you need. I have similar issues with Gmail. Then there are things like Google Home that have the opposite issue, forcing you to move to a mobile device or emulate one on the desktop just to change a few settings.

      And in some cases, their web vs. native app mentality makes zero sense to me. They actually built then removed the Google Shopping list Android app and now only have the web version, cause everyone shops with their laptop sitting open in the cart, right? /s I can use the web version on my phone’s browser, but then for some reason it wants to arrange my shopping list alphabetically rather than the order I chose that matches the store layout. Wtf? It also previously had clear color photos automatically added for every item that made it much faster to navigate, but they removed them completely without comment.

      I wouldn’t include Tensorflow in the list. Tensorflow’s dates are numbered too.

      Google internally all but switched to JAX.
